The title of my post....it was on the wall of the cafeteria of my daughters school tonight. I liked it, it spoke to me so I emailed it to myself from my blackberry real quick so I wouldn't forget it verbatim. It is by "anonymous". Man that anonymous guy writes some great stuff! LOL.
You know what, the tone of my post probably sounds like I'm in a good mood. It didn't start off that way. I woke up with the breakup pain and loss sitting on my chest like a giant elephant. I slogged my way through getting ready for work, driving there on autopilot. Once I got there I pushed thoughts of him aside all day long, like stray hairs falling in my eyes. I felt strong but absentminded during yoga. I guess life continues to happen, no matter how we feel inside. We have bills to pay, banquets to attend, lots to do at work....life just keeps going and we can't afford to be left behind, nor would I want to miss any precious moments like my daughter being honored at school for her dance team achievement. So I continue to absentmindedly brush those stray hairs aside, ignore the elephant on my chest and embrace what's in front of me.
