What, what’s that weird feeling I have today? OMG, is it a pulse?

I often say that when it rains, it hurricanes. But eventually, the clouds part and you start to see a faint glimmer of sunlight — just when you need it most. Nothing specific happened, but at some point, you’ve got to start believing what everyone else is telling you. As someone told me yesterday, trust the process. And I will.

I’m not going to claim everything is roses and unicorns. Not even close. But I am starting to see where attitude is half the battle. I don’t know why things happen when or the way they do, but alas, they had to happen, regardless. And we can either sit around bemoaning our fates or we can say, “I can work with this set of circumstances. I just need a few minutes to pull it together.” That few minutes of collecting yourself is such a luxury, but moving forward, you see it was a necessity.

At this point, I’m fumbling for the bootstraps. But they’re around here somewhere — I know I’ve seen them before! Certain people have come into my life to coax me off the ledge and back to me — back into the cocoon of dreams that I long since abandoned. Right now, my full-time concern is keeping up my spirit — and it will eventually pay off, but it means surviving on scraps and digesting your pride every now and again. But that will come back in time. It’s all part of the cycle, and I will be a better person for it all. Never underestimate the power of passion. And having an abundance of it was never my problem!

    What a cool line. I like that very much. I also agree with what you said there. I have been neating myself up for a while lately. I don’t even know why any more. But I know I need to start seeing more of the bright side myself!
