Why Can't Life Imitate...

On a tv sitcom, the next week,  after a HUGE episode, they go right back to "situation normal", most of the time. That is what we need to take to heart, and learn from all those years of tv addiction!!! I had this epiphany on August 23, after watching, yet another, episode of Big Bang Theory.

Moving on has never been a strength of mine. I AM moving on from my Mother's passing; but my progress feels sooo slow, at times. I know there is no time limit for grief; but man!!!

I have been able to get some more "lighter" words and meaning into my poetry; but some days, I drive MYSELF crazy!!!

The goal is to keep moving forward, and I really am; though at times it doesn't feel like it. I keep trying to "step away from myself", and view my progress - which is happening - however slow-moving it is.

I'm putting all this out there, because I know I am not the only person to EVER go through this; and I know the pressure one can put on oneself. One word of advice to my younger self I posted on Facebook, the other day, was "Be your best YOU; not what everyone else thinks you should be. "

I have REALLY had to focus on myself, through this process. I know I have alienated a lot of people, and my "Circle" is miniscule; but I can feel myself moving forward, at least today. I have been on an emotional rollercoaster, these last three months; so I will take the good, when I have it, and learn and move on from the bad.

Have a good day, and be safe...
