Today was a tough day... For whatever reason I felt sad and disinterested in my usual activities and it took a special effort to stay busy and distracted and to resist the dark thoughts. Thankfully I'm not being beat up too badly by suicidal thoughts but I'm definitely feeling the challenges of a sad mood.
I wanted to write something for "Words for Wednesday," and my off day definitely influenced my writing! Hopefully I can write more of an update update soon (read: hopefully my mood rebounds and I have a better update to share soon).
His sea green eyes cheer me on, whisper encouragement and anchor me to this world. Carefully I pick my way through the cluttered path, over sharp shells and thousands of battered tendrils of seaweed that have been carelessly abducted by swiftly flowing froth. The rain falls over us and he smiles as tears crest my lower lids. "Some days are just going to be harder than others and that's not your fault at all," he shakes his head and rubs my shoulder, "You're doing the best you can and that's enough." I nod and sigh, struggling to refocus my brain on the colors around me and breathing in and out at a calculated pace... one moment at a time.
Til next time! Be well :o)
