Thanks to everyone for your support yesterday. Sometimes I feel like a self-centered moron for getting so overwhelmed by my problems, which I know are tiny and insignificant in the grand scheme of things. Like a cobweb in the middle of the dark, dank, rancid, rat-infested attic of the world’s issues.
I’m lucky, and I know it.
So I let myself have one bad day, and now I’m determined not to wallow. Last night I watched Wednesday’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance and then ran around the backyard with Riley. After accidentally sloshing through some mud and then coming down wrong on my knee, I decided to just sit on the ground and watch while Riley sniffed and chewed on the grass.
I didn’t come up with any magical solutions by looking at the sky or the trees or the old couple walking down the street. But I did find peace.
