365 Letters to Myself

January 20th - Background...

As I reflect upon the week, there seems to be a theme in some conversations I’ve had – to get to Z, u,v,w,x,y, must happen first. I was explaining my own such situation today. Before I could ask my question, had to give the background.

The background being a snapshot of what I refer to as ‘my situation’, ‘the event’. After what felt like too long, I seem to rattle it off with no feelings, as a matter of fact. One could suggest being forced out of your job, career, family deserves more… but over it. I dismissed the respectful, “Sorry to hear”. Confirmed how ‘sad’ it all is. What happened though should not take any more of my energy. I do not want it occupying space anywhere in my life. But had to go there first, so I could proceed on. If I wouldn’t have shared it, as noted, an understanding would not exist to offer an informed answer on next step.

I now know what will have to occur, so that my bigger objective can be addressed. Even if it is likely I am choosing an exercise in futility, at least I am doing something differently.

Roll over, crawl, stand, walk, run – can’t do one before the other.

Hmmm, first…day 180!

Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
