    Hey Shannon,
    Like you, my feeling is that I have many more contractions–although I never thought about it in this way before. In fact, I get the sense that if I’d had babies, I’d have a lonnngg labor since apparently, contractions are my thing LOL!
    I think for me, some of the reason has to do with the past abuse and how it shifted my focus to the negative rather than positive. I was often guarded, anxious, and more aware of problems than other kids my age. I wasn’t taught to see my future as expansive and full of possibility. It is still a work in progress for me to some extent!

      Haha – I think I would have been in that same boat with you there! More and more I am starting to feel like focus on the negative is that most ancient part of us that is just trying to keep us alive through one more day. It has gone haywire in an age where we are more likely to die of old age than any other cause!
