- Starting Over...Again
These are all recurring themes on this blog. I get so tired of taking two steps forward and three steps back. And then I think, well, at least I keep moving forward.
I believe the proliferation of quotes, pictures, songs, and books about these feelings make them OH so universal.
My mother reminds me that our life work is never really done. There is always another layer to peel back. I always hope, maybe this layer won't be as thick as the last one and so perhaps, maybe I won't cry, hurt or fill in the blank as much as I did last time.
From my own experience, I can share I tackled more than one emotional land mine in this past year. The biggest of all was a doozy and frankly, I am still tackling it. At this point in time, it still can bring me to my knees, but I am so freaking cried out from it I feel like there's nothing left to cry about. It is, what it is.
Feelings just are. They don't require an explanation, but my heart would REALLY like one.

As I tackle yet another emotional roller-coaster kind of week, I take comfort in knowing I am not alone. Pains affect us all. I go to many other blogs for my inspiration; for my spiritual uplifting; comfort.
My goal here has always been to share. To profess as loud as I can that love always wins. That living in the present moment is a goal of mine but it. is. hard. I love when I get a comment or a like or a text or a call from someone telling me that read what I wrote and they got it. None of us are alone. I am thankful everyday for the gift of this blog and the ability I have to just write and share and perhaps, just maybe, make a difference in my little corner of cyberspace.
Here's to life. And love. xo
I must have listened to it twenty times since then.
Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to care
For people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way
Of caring about ourselves
