Over And Under In Between The Ups And Downs

I've been all over the place lately. I have a lot to do, but things keep popping up and trying to get in my way. I'm managing, but it has not been easy by any stretch. My thoughts have been so difficult to corral. Struggling just to find a simple adjective has become so tiring. It is just one word. But, the time I spend agonizing over it is almost comical.

I'm looking for a break, but I don't know if I'm going to find one. It seems no matter how far ahead I get, I'm still at the same place on the side of the mountain. The dirt and rock beneath my feet just keeps sliding. The summit remains elusive. And, I don't know if I'll ever get close to it.

There's not much else to say, except I want to send my thoughts out to those people in my life who are struggling so mightily right now. My teeny, tiny mountains to climb seem so trivial by comparison. Just know that I'm thinking about you all and I know you are all stronger than you think you are. Keep going. That's all any of us can do.

Ah, it's been a bit steep lately, Heidi. Thanks for this. :-)

There just seem to be so many people struggling right now. I just wanted everyone to know that I'm pulling for them.

Here's hoping things look up soon, Neve.

Hear, hear.

There have been some hills to climb here too, but in the grand scheme of things...

All the best.

Heidi Champa said...

I feel the same way Craig. Compared to other people my problems seem small.

I hope things turn around quickly for you too.

How sweet of you, Heidi — supportive energy to you too. And of course the very authenticity with which you offer support supports you too. (That may not make as much sense as I feel like I want it is about my bedtime.)

Emerald, don't worry. It makes perfect sense. Hugs right back at you.
