“Now that she had nothing to lose, she was free.” ― Paulo Coelho
I've had a weight on my shoulders for quite nearly 9 months, and it has been holding me hostage. I can't really share exactly the circumstances, but I can say that it doesn't reside in my home. Sadly, this stresser has affected every fiber of my being, and I have struggled to remain the person I want to be. Under the constant pressure, I have deviated from things that fundamentally make up who I am. It has been quite unbearable.
Recently, I was set free of this burden. I didn't clearly predict how sweet the relief would be. A day later, Sugar Bear and I found ourselves with an opportunity to soak up some sun at a local lake. While I sat and watched my little heart play, it quite felt like I was watching an animated version of my life being set free of this chronic stress I have been under.
I noticed there was pure JOY in my heart.
And an absence of FEAR.
I could feel the deadly grip it had on me loosen....
and LET GO!
At that moment I was FREE! and I knew it.....embraced it.......went with it...
and haven't landed yet!
LIFE IS GOOD!
