Relief. That has been a new feeling I’ve been getting more comfortable fully identifying with. When I talk to people about my current situation, a common response is, “we’ll thank goodness you didn’t have a house.” Or “good thing you guys didn’t have kids!” And many more along the same lines.
It’s hard to believe that Fall 2017 is here, I mean does anyone else feel like this year is flying by? I’m not too mad about it because A) 2017 blows and B) it’s Fall & the best time of the year!!! That means pies, pumpkin everything, sweaters, warm socks, boots, crisp mornings…the list goes on. Also, heeyyyy still blogging for you from my phone 🙄
Ok, full disclosure, I’m writing this blog post from my phone because my laptop (which is less than a year old) decided to crap out last weekend and I don’t know how to fix it! It’s going through some weird repairing loop and I’ve gone through all the online forums and tried to do a few things but SOS! Any computer savvy friends out there? Send help and wine 😉 anyway please excuse any typos or weird formatting because writing a blog via phone just ain’t the same.
One thing I’ve heard countless times and one thing I know is that time helps heal. Believe me, I have experienced loss before and heartbreak and yes while time does help heal it can be one slow mother f’er.
A lot of the initial shock of my current situation has worn off and now I’m just trying to get through each day and act like things are normal. Sometimes this is successful, other times not so much. However, this past week has provided a huge dose of perspective. Terrible things happen all the time, but maybe because I’m already in a state of hypersensitivity or I find myself sad a lot more often, the devastation of Hurricane Harvey has really been on my mind.
