Two years ago right now ----> THIS <---- is what we were dealing with. From the fog of those days we've pushed forward, carving out our new normals. A hell of a task. We all did the best we could with the hand we were dealt and I've learned many lessons since. The fragility of life astounds me. In a single moment, your entire world can change forever and all you can do is hold on for dear life and try to remember to breathe.
And dammit, we did.
These past couple of years have been a test of strength, will, faith, love and friendship. The best of the best rose to the top while the scoundrels were weeded out. It still amazes me how cold hearted some can be.
Thank God they're gone.
For someone who abhors change (*points to self*), this has been an insane last six months. We moved twice, acclimated to a new state, I started a business in an industry .. well let's say I'm learning as I go and working 7 days a week. I'm exhausted and when I run out of juice, it ain't pretty. My man is a patient saint, believe you me.
I see things differently, it's interesting how trauma can mold and shape your very being. I honestly try not take the good stuff for granted and make an effort to appreciate the blessings ..
Especially the two that gave me a reason to get up and carve.
