A Recipe for Perspective

Mix together. Sprinkle with giggles, ridiculousness & gossip.

Thanks, Lady. Last night was *exactly* what I needed.

* * * * *

It’s been a rough week. It’s been hard to remember what’s important and what needs to fall by the wayside. It’s been difficult to smile and see the goodness in my life — the negativity has been impairing my vision.

I’m on the way back up, thankfully – thanks to CBG’s love for me, good friends and the voice of reason inside me. That voice gets battered every now and again, but is a whole lot louder than it used to be in the past. Overall I am much further ahead than I was once upon a time, but still have so much further to go.

Today, I feel hopeful and optimistic that I will one day get there.

  5. I wonder if you’re doing what I did last year…

    I went into a depression right around the time that Soldier and I had broken up the year prior. There was no indication that anything was going wrong with me and Rascal but I was convinced of so much ‘gloom and doom’ that I was only seeing bad stuff and reasons we wouldn’t last.

    I just caught up on your posts (sorry) and saw that you just passed the (un)anniversary…

    Just a thought.

    Glad you have friends to chill out with and be happy with! You deserve it!

  6. […] be dating, or realizing that you have made the right decision, or rebuilding your life , to finding perspective and happiness – it’s the edge of something good, great, frickin […]
