52 weeks – 5.5 months

52 Weeks – A blog dedicated to Lionel Larry; No guts no glory his motto; His work, travel and family his passions; His living life to the FULLEST in sickness and in health his legacy.

5.5 months – Tuesday September 15, 2015 – The first Rosh Hashanah without my Dad

Wishing everyone a sweet year filled with health first and foremost, so much love to surround you through all the challenges that come your way, and enough laughter, good times and fun to keep the beauty in your heart and soul! May your year be peaceful.

What have I learned over the past few days is this:

It is important to start traditions

Family really and truly is everything

Health is so precious and we must be grateful for it

Life is rocky, and wavy, and beautiful and mysterious – all at the same time

When I am angry, I cannot feel my Dad at all.  When I surrender more and ease into life, I feel him all around me.

Gratitude is key –

Routine and Habits for self care like exercise, yoga, eating healthy are necessary and important when your body is under a lot of stress

Grief is not something you should be ashamed of – it is a really intense experience that can take over your body and add an enormous stress load – physically and emotionally.  Be gentle with yourself if you are grieving, and know that acute grief can last up to 18 months after losing a loved one.

That wether you like it or not – the days are passing, the seasons are shifting, and we have to keep moving….

Above all – make connections and surround yourself with good people and a lot of love – that is what you take with you when you go – the love of the people who knew you is what keeps your spirit alive.

Ending with this song today – the wheel by The Grateful Dead

The wheel is turning and you can’t slow down,
You can’t let go and you can’t hold on,
You can’t go back and you can’t stand still,
If the thunder don’t get you then the lightning will.

Won’t you try just a little bit harder,
Couldn’t you try just a little bit more?
Won’t you try just a little bit harder,
Couldn’t you try just a little bit more?

Round, round robin run round, got to get back to where you belong,
Little bit harder, just a little bit more,
A little bit further than you gone before.
The wheel is turning and you can’t slow down,

You can’t let go and you can’t hold on,
You can’t go back and you can’t stand still,
If the thunder don’t get you then the lightning will.
Small wheel turn by the fire and rod,

Big wheel turn by the grace of God,
Every time that wheel turn ’round,
Bound to Hecover just a little more ground.
The wheel is turning and you can’t slow down,

You can’t let go and you can’t hold on,
You can’t go back and you can’t stand still,
If the thunder don’t get you then the lightning will.
Won’t you try just a little bit harder,

Couldn’t you try just a little bit more?
Won’t you try just a little bit harder,
Couldn’t you try just a little bit more?

Hi Jodi, Thank you so much for all your help! After our sessions I have naturally taken control of my seasonal allergies. This is the first year of my life I have lived “allergy free”, without side effects or drugs. I am also greatful for your coaching me through a detox. I feel lighter, more energetic and most importantly I now understand how to manage my diet to remain positive, energetic. Best wishes!

I have suffered with IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) since I was a teenager. Within one month of working with Dr. Jodi Larry, the pains in my stomach have gone away (and the urges to have a bathroom nearby are gone). Dr. Larry was able to pinpoint the problem, create a diet which my body needed and continues to work with me to keep my IBS under control. Dr. Larry makes herself available for me in between appointments, whether it be a quick phone call or email. Thank you Dr. Larry for improving t…

I embarked on my cleanse journey for a second time, after feeling like it was time to get back on track. I felt very motivated and dedicated to the process. I wanted to feel better physically, emotionally and spiritually. Within a few days of the cleanse and removal of toxins, I felt a shift in my mood, spirit, energy and overall life outlook. Jodi provides a framework and environment in which I felt safe, free to express myself without judgment and an overall team spirit.

Dr. Jodi Larry’s therapy was immeasurable to my success in recovery as an addict. I struggled with addiction and had to resolve many issues. As of today, I am sober for just over 2 years. I keep certain passages pasted beside my workspace so I remember to recite them and often go ‘back’ into the calm place I found in therapy. I would not be who I am today without her counsel.
