Breaking The Silence

There’s been a lot going on behind the scenes with me.

A lot of emotions. A lot of stress. A lot of anger. A lot of fear.

Work has been a bit crazy since it’s probably our busiest time of the year. ¬†My son came home from a week away with his dad acting not like himself, so I’ve been dealing with that. Veterans Day reopened old wounds associated with my breakup with Ben, during which I realized I’m still really fucking pissed at him for breaking my heart after I trusted him with it. Toss in a rapidly approaching Court date and custody battle with my ex and last night I broke down in an ugly cry after I tucked my son into bed.

There are times I get completely overwhelmed having to handle so much on my own. Yesterday was one of them.

I know I’m strong. I know I always prevail – but sometimes I just want someone to wrap their fucking arms around me and be the strength I need to keep kicking ass instead of always having to muster up that strength for myself.

I was pretty beat down and exhausted by life until I got a phone call from a friend today that made me laugh and smile.

Thank you, friend.

He reminded me of who I normally am when I’m not drowning in a sea of circumstances.

I’m a fun-loving, adventurous, and driven woman, that nurtures and helps others see the best in themselves.

I’m a devoted mother that takes the time to be goofy, draws cartoon characters on snack bags, and showers her son with affection.

I take risks, open my heart, and repeatedly fall in love with the wrong kind of men – but live to laugh about it.

Basically, I’m gonna be OK once the shitstorm blows over. Why?

Because I stumbled across a Tumblr that is completely devoted to pairing sexy pics of men with their cat counterparts

I can choose to feel sorry for myself by focusing on the tough times, or I can choose to laugh at ridiculously paired  photos of half naked men with cats.

I choose the kiteeehhhhhssss.

Yea, I’m gonna be OK.

    You’re going to be just fine. I wish I was a little closer so I could offer my arms. You will prevail however, even without my limbs.

      This was so unexpected and appreciated. Just the offer of your limbs was enough to make me smile. Thank you ;)
