Just one little push

Posted on

I am prone to self destruction due to implosion. I am fantastic at building a great big beautiful life that outwardly screams of awesome until I reach a point where my toes are dangling over the edge of the cliff.

Then comes a little push. A nudge, really–just enough to upset the delicate balance I worked so hard to create. It all came crashing down–it feels like every area of my life imploded a little bit, leaving me in the dark place, bewildered at which mess to clean up first.

My dark place is small potatoes compared to many in the world, and I don’t wish to detract from the very real pain of others. But all potatoes matter. This has been the hardest few months I’ve had in a long time, and I finally feel like I can pull myself out of it, for better or for worse (the worse, of course meaning that I’ve put on the 5 lbs. that melted off when I was too stressed out to sleep or eat. The better–everything else.)

So what is the point of starting this blog?

I don’t want to waste the opportunity to record this journey. I don’t know why I feels so different this time. I’ve been to the dark place many times, but I can see the light up ahead.

Here we go.

I’m a spinning enthusiast, once-a-year half marathoner, and I can sew damn near anything. The rest is filled with the husband, the puppy, the chickens, and one massive garden.

A Life in the Word

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
