Through

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015 14

Walking this new path in my life, managing this unexpected part of the journey, I find myself fumbling. I’m tripping over unseen roots and keeping a kind of hyper-vigilance. I seem to be holding my hands out in front of me as if to protect myself from branches and brambles, trying to keep the painful obstacles that might be ahead at bay. I suppose I am quite literally feeling my way.

While I am completely unsure of where I’m headed and what the destination may be, I know one thing for certain. I am going THROUGH. I know there is no going around. There is no evading what is, however painful and difficult it may be. There is no outrunning the truth, the heartbreak, the grief.

There is only THROUGH.

    One of my favorite Alanis songs is titled “The Only Way Out is Through”. I love the message so much -painful as it is, was, and has been for me some days – I almost got it tattoo’d on me. I did not, because I soon realized that feeling of “I just need to get through this” will pass. It is a painful and often gut-wrenching feeling. But it is temporary. Sending you lots of strength (and some dance party vibes if you look up Alanis’ tune!). xo

    • Meghan says:

      Thanks for kind words and the music suggestion, Kelly. I’ll take some dance party vibes any day! xo
