It could be said that this has been a trying week. One which has tried my patience, tried my faith, tried my stamina and tried my sanity.
Yet I'm still trying. Trying to do the best I can, trying to be kind to those around me, trying to understand that each day is simply another step in a beautiful journey.
Some days all you have is the trying.
So, yeah, I'm grateful for the ability and willingness to try.
Only moments after posting this I spoke with a friend, who had already read the post. I'm at the very least flattered by such a quick read, and I think part of the conversation needs to be documented here if for no other reason because I am lucky enough to have someone in my life who references Yoda.
Him: I just read your blog.
Me: Wow! That was a quick read. Thank you for being interested.
Me: Ummmmmm...that's all you have to say????
Him: What would Yoda say?
Me: How the hell would I know? What would he say?
Him: Try not. Be.
I love that.
What a wonderful gift I received early on a Friday morning.
Just be. Cut yourself some slack. Stop trying so fucking hard.
Happy Friday to ya'. I love YOU, my sweet readers.
