*sigh* I’m getting there. Riding through the ebb and flow of grief. Managing the deadlines and work stress. I’m starting to feel a bit more like myself. I’m able to have more sustained focus and attention. In journaling about my experiences of this past month, and seeing the ups and downs of my emotions, I see a constant in what has been buoying my spirits. Connections. People. My relationships.
I’m struck by the reaching out of my friends and family. The flurry of cards that arrived in our mailbox — for weeks. The emails. The phone calls. The notes on Facebook. The importance of these relationships in my life is not lost on me. Not for one second. No matter how monumental my stress, no matter how awful that pit in my stomach feels, no matter how grief-stricken, I know I have dear relationships and friends to turn to. I can see what’s really important. What gets me through are these connections. Thanks for letting me lean on you. xoxo
