week in review

as I continue to discover and navigate my new normal, I’m finding I still have a lot of work to do. this week was a prime example. and, while I won’t go into the details, there were a rough few days in there. thankfully, I have many tools and resources in place, such as writing and therapy, that helped me through — and continue to do so. I also have the best support system for which anyone could ask, and for this, I am continually grateful.

“Fireworks erupt in a blaze of glory but quickly fizzle, leaving just wisps of smoke and a memory of what was once spectacular . . . passion is a compass — that thing that takes you some time to build, tinker with, and finally get right, and that then guides you on your long and windy road to where, ultimately, you want to be.” ~Angela Duckworth, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance
