Some things in life just are NOT worth it. It’s not worth the stress…the lack of sleep…the wear and tear on your body…or the the feeling of being under siege in your own mind. As the song goes..you need to know when to hold it, when to fold it, and when to walk away.
At the end of the day, it’s important to know what really matters most in life…your sanity, your health, your family and the ability to start anew. Practice the real life lessons found in front of you from the serenity prayer. Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. Sometimes winning means not holding on, but learning to release your grip and letting go. Learn from it, grow from it and forgive yourself if necessary. Let it go. Move on. You have GREATNESS within you!
— Les Brown
Randomly saw this on facebook and my throat tightened. I was stopped at a red light and my eyes grew moist. Perhaps I haven’t been registering just how stressed I am. Just how defeated I feel.
Forgive myself. That’s a good start.
[Day 55] Weakness.
No music is loud enough to take away the quietness of the end of a holiday.
A sense of loss, a mourning, for the people I will miss, and the memories that carved deep.
This trip has exposed me to an alternate life that could be.
A peek, into the window of a happiness just out of reach.
I’m not so sure about where to go from here or what choices I should make…
One day at a time for now, I guess.
A fulfilling life of passion, love, and enriching inspirations.
But no. Culled during risk assessment, “you did not pass the background check”.
