"And eventually the clouds metaphorically part and – as if by magic – we get a blast of normalcy and remember how amazingly wonderful it can be to feel life instead of suffer from it." - Jenny Lawson

I read this today in a post by the Bloggess. Her post was about depression, but this quote echoed for me in another way.

It reminded me so very much of the moments back when I was in the thick of things. The moments when the pain of the betrayal, the chaos of the every day, and the relentlessness of the shit storm would part, and for a brief moment, I could see the sun again. I could see what was on the horizen, and I could visualize the new normal that was waiting, just around the next corner. Those moments saved my sanity in the darker days.

Sunshine lies ahead. Believe it.

Thank you.

There came a point when it was too painful to love him, so I stopped.

NIK, you need to repost that on Monday's inspiration post.

But this one is nice too.

I love this NIK - so true!!

Sunlight has been big for my healing metaphorically and literally (ironic if you knew me - I have Vitiligo). It has been so nice to 'feel' myself too after having numbed and dumbed myself down for so long.

Love it. Thank you for sharing.

a hug is a strangle, not yet finished.


I may have reached a point where I'd piss on him if he was on fire.... eventually!!

I keep thinking that if I just hold on for a little while longer it will be like giving birth....painful for a little while but you have a wonderful new life on the other side.
