New Day, New Week

There are millions of people around the globe who wail about going back to school or work on Monday. It is almost embarrassing to admit it, but I loved Mondays as a student because I got to escape the close scrutiny of my parents for a few hours a day. Later on, when I started working, I actually looked forward to being among the colleagues again. Weird? Yes. Unusual? No. Mondays give me a chance to start anew and work with a feasible timeframe.

I have been in therapy for almost a year now and I am still a long way from where I need to be, but I am grateful to be much further along from where I began. For example, instead of crawling from one day to the next, I can now work with a week and a month perspective. Don’t ask me about six months from now, or even a year ahead because the thought terrifies me. Small steps, tangible goals, and everything at a pace that embraces current age, health, state of mind, and general equilibrium.

Prayer and Faith are friends that I have neglected, but they never left me and offered the comfort I needed during my darkest nights.

I was raised to be grateful for the sun and the blue skies, but life taught me lessons through the rain and the clouds.

Learn to swim I was told, but I found out that sinking made me stronger.
