Today I took a breath…

And I feel so much better.

A lovely lunch date with my dear friends, Lisa and Christy, really helped me stop “reacting” instead of being “proactive”. I stopped reacting and thought about our conversation and my current harried panic (reaction) to the issues being presented to me right now.


I took a breath.

I am going to be ok.

Things, whatever path they take, will work themselves out. Yep, with some elbow grease from me, as it should. I’m ok with that.

Plus, I talked to my Mom about it, too. I love my mom. She’s pretty smart 😉 We may not always see eye to eye on every issue – and who does? – but my mom is a wise woman. Plus, she agrees with the points brought up today and actually already had these thoughts. Yet another sign that I need to take a moment to step back. To plan. To think.

To breathe.

And I did.

I’m thankful for all of these people.

And I am gifted with love and frienships that have seen me through.

I really am.

Carry on.

And isn’t it great to have friends like you have, to go to lunch with, and be able to vent and share all your feelings? Love you, Barb…. This too shall pass…. xoxo

      • Thanks, Karen. I’m really doing much better today, thanks to my friends, Mom, other things coming together. Things are looking up 🙂 Love you, too. xoxo
