The last two weeks has just felt odd. The weekdays have seemed never-ending and one continual round of "PICK THAT UP/PUT IT AWAY/DON'T TOUCH THAT/DO YOUR HOMEWORK". Saturday and Sunday have come and passed in the blink of an eye and I find myself waking up on Monday saying, "AGAIN? PASS!"
So last night when I desperately needed some community, something, someone, ANYTHING to talk my off my "oh why me" ledge, I found this. I was able to take a breath.
Then I saw this. Or maybe the order was reversed. Whatever.
Either way, I needed something. I needed to have my feelings articulated by someone else. I needed to feel like I was not alone in this struggle.
So today I will focus on breathing. On expanding the confining suffocation I feel. Just for today I will push back the darkness with all I've got, with all I can muster.
Tomorrow will be better. Tomorrow can be better. I will MAKE tomorrow better.
