Breathing again ...


Tuesday, August 27, 2013

I caved and allowed my best friend to take me out of town this past weekend and can now say it was a blessing. We headed up the coast for a little girl time aka KT needs to get away and talk about "something." I fold within myself and become silent when things in my own world go sideways. My girl had become concerned when this time around seemed to have me in the darkest of places with no hope of return.

We walked on the beach.
Danced in our hotel room.
Ate like we didn't have a care in the world.
Drank wine and bubbly at the wineries.
Laughed until we cried.
We sat in comfortable silence.
We talked like we hadn't seen each other in 20 yrs.

She cried when I told her my story, my troubles, my everything.
I simply started breathing again.

Back to the real world yesterday I discovered my endless hunger had disappeared. Confiding in ones I trust allows me not only to breathe but to put down the food. My situation hasn't changed but now I'm no longer in the darkness and alone.

I'm continuing my efforts at my new gym and have loved every minute there. I escape for an hour for me time ... fun time.

Blessing to you all ...

    Your weekend away sounds like pure bliss :) I am glad you were able to enjoy that and find comfort in your friend and the simple things in life. I know I have been a consistent sparker and know everything that's going on with you, but I hope and pray that you have peace in your situation soon. I know you are a strong and capable woman...you are a fighter and I have faith that you will make it through whatever comes your way! emoticon

* I've "kidnapped" and been "kidnapped by" a few friends (especially in college)

"She cried when I told her my story, my troubles, my everything.

* Know the feeling

"Blessing to you all ... "
* To you as well

I'm thankful to your friend for what she did for you.

  SO GOOD to read that you let yourself be removed from your troubles and you feel so much better now that you're back in your world. When you're dealing with a lot as you are it's so easy to just push people away because you're not up to chit chat and entertaining but there is always that one person whom you can just be YOU with. The experience you had with your girl sounds AMAZING. I totally wish I was able to get away like that and refocus and clear my mind. We are never in darkness alone ... we just choose to be ... we have to allow them in so we can find our way again. May your situation change in due time. Glad you've found some peace and ready to keep fighting. HUGS!!
