The Truth is…

While there have been subtle and not so subtle shifts in my life.  And while I am more comfortable in my own skin, the truth is…

There are some days when I don’t work out

I still watch Days of Our Lives…just now on hulu

Sometimes dinner is the jar of almond butter with a spoon

I will leave clothes in the dryer and just pull them out as needed…for days (ok, weeks)

I’ll leave dishes in the sink overnight or all day

While I try to be present in each moment, I do think about the past and wonder ‘what if?’

Even though I enjoy my solitude, some nights I’d like to come home to someone who I can cuddle with on the couch, who is not my cat

Somedays its not ‘all good’

I know that I can’t fix things for you but dammit I really really wish I could

I’m not sure what my passion is and I’m really trying to figure that out

I spend more money than I make and sometimes it stresses me out but I don’t normally let on that it does

Sometimes I curl up on the couch and watch tv for hours

And somedays, I don’t leave my house, don’t talk to anyone, don’t even get out of my pjs.

The truth is…life is not all sunshine and roses…sometimes its weeds and rain.  But I believe that it is all exactly as it is supposed to be…the good, the bad, the ugly.  The truth is…I don’t think I’d change any bit of it.

    YES!! Oh yes. I continually remind myself that life begins in the dark. I love watching others embrace the “darks” in their life because usually, not far off, a light shines bright and transformation happens. LOVE.
