Dear friends, I’m finally emerging, I think, from a really dark place. It’s not so much the “stuff” that’s happened, though I can say that this has been a pretty crappy year so far in many respects, but at its worst, your mind and imagination can be your enemy. I don’t recall ever going through such debilitating daily turmoil, but I think I have turned a corner after a few traumatic weeks, finally.
Sometimes, however, life has a way keeping you on your toes when you start getting comfortable. After some not so good news earlier this week, I’m left wondering what to do with myself. I’ve been through this before, I’ll survive, but I have to laugh because I feel like this has been a year of tests. On the upside, I’ll have time to breathe and refocus on some things that I’ve been putting off. I’ll try to enjoy the summer and regroup later. The important thing is that I’m feeling lighter in my heart and mind these days. The rest of life? You just have to fly with it.
Thanks to Christie, Nichole, Liza, Alison and mom.
