The family drama is over; the words have all been spoken, the tears...well they still fall too frequently. But this morning I awoke with no immediate responsibilities; a free few hours to sort out the direction of the day.
I'm hoping this calmness I feel is a sign my stress level is going down. For far too long I have been living like a volcano ready to erupt at any moment...and too often I did. It was no longer a case of being unable to suffer fools, I have been unable to tolerate most everyone. I have had one focus and most everything and everyone else was of little importance. I make no apologies for it. I did what I needed to do.
So now it is time to reclaim life.
It rained last night and washed away the heat and humidity. It's a breezy morning with the sun shining through the trees. A perfect day for a walk around the lake. Or writing and research.
Or a walk around the lake. Let me revise my expectations ...one blog and two projects...and a walk around the lake.
One blog done...definitely a walk around the lake.
