Yesterday was not a very good day for me. I didn’t feel like myself, and I was not the best person to be around. As my birthday was approaching, I felt a weight in me. The weight of unfulfilled dreams, and failure. I thought of the things that I wanted to do and accomplish and have not. As I struggle to understand what is success and how it is measured, I wanted to write this to remind me of my down times. Maybe to go forward once has to take a small step back to look at life from a different perspective. Maybe one has to detach from oneself in order to appreciate what we have in life.
Then this morning came, and I opened my inbox only discover tons of love from my friends and family. The laughter of my daughter, the unconditional love of my mother, and the support and encouragement of my husband. I was overwhelmed by it, and tears cleansed my fears and clear my mind to embrace my life as it is: just dandy.
