When you smiled for me...

The last few days have been an emotional roller-coaster, and it's been quite the ride. I went around one more time yesterday morning and decided I wanted off. Each twist and up-side-down turn, spilled the contents of my life and I felt like I was going to be sick. For some reason, getting off didn't seem like an option and so I held on-strapped down by worry and false expectation. Stopping the ride has proven a greater thrill in the end, but challenging nonetheless. Where did all this emotion come from? I wasn't aware that I signed up for this. :o)

I know in my head, that feelings are just feelings but sometimes I am embarrassed and/or ashamed of the ones that aren't "socially acceptable." It seemed easier-no better-that I keep going, even if that meant potentially derailing. I have to say what a wonderful feeling it is to have so many hands reach out to me in a time of need. These hands taught me, in one day, what they have collectively learned throughout a lifetime.

  • You can't help others effectively, working from an empty tank.
  • It's good to learn from your mistakes, but better to learn from the mistakes of others.
  • When the world is crashing down, find a soft place to let it land.
  • It's okay to put your head down and cry...It's okay to let others see, what deep down they already know-you're not perfect.
  • let go and let God.
  • You are loved and you're not alone.

Thank you for smiling for me.
