I went to the office today. I was so busy with meetings and follow-up that the time just flew by. I got home around 6:30pm, pet the cats and wondered around for a bit. Then sat down on the couch, finished up some work, and am now getting ready for bed. This post will be much shorter than my recent posts (don’t get so excited).
Not only am I back and committed to writing more and working through my life in this public manner, my favorite blog friends are back as well. They too have struggled over these last few years. They have been so generous to share their experiences, their struggle, their deepest fears, angst, joys with all of us. I have come to know and love these folks – and their words have given me pause, made me think, and have influenced me in very positive ways. They share their experiences with such honesty and openness, I aspire to write and share like they do. I hope you enjoy their writings as much as I do –
- That Precarious Gait – She is finally back! Like me, she took a hiatus – trying to get through each day, not knowing that I related to the experiences she shared… Now is a great time to catch up with her, she just wrote a great post, catching me (and the world) up on why she has been gone for so long. She has such a great writing style – so clear, concise, impactful, and emotional without being “victim-ish”.. it’s insightful and I gets me thinking.
- Four Is A Family – Love this man’s sense of humor. A Brit that lives in Virginia (or somewhere cold on the East Coast), living life and sharing his experiences on love, love lost, raising daughters (which is SO HARD), working, and trying to keep it together. He too disappeared due to overwhelming life responsibilities. But he too, is back. At the same time as me and That Precarious Gait. Lucky me.
What I realized while dealing with my own shisa, is that others are struggling too, I’m not the only one out there running into family or relationship or other issues. There are a lot of folks out there trying to figure out their path in life, working hard to learn from their experiences, and moving on, becoming better people through the process.
Anyway, it came to me today. Life is about the choices I make. And this breakup is about the choices I’ve made over the last 3 years.. or maybe even longer. It’s my responsibility to figure out why I’ve made the choices I have, to learn from them, and move on.
So here I go, sharing my journey with you. The ups and downs, the process of learning from my successes and my failures. I hope you get as much out of my experiences as I get from Precarious and FIAF.
