Last year, my life spun out of control. So many changes -- and so many of them heavy, heavy. I was just bombarded with one big thing after another after another.
Like . . . well . . . it would've been enough with Tom leaving his career to open his own consulting business. Yes. That alone would have been plenty of change for any year. (And I was prepared for that one. I knew that one was coming!) But then, my mom got sick - and there was so much we didn't understand about what was going on. And then, the shock of her dying -- so quickly, and without clear answers. Then came helping my dad navigate huge life shifts and major decisions. And all of this going on, of course, against the backdrop of the 2016 election and it's aftermath.
I tried hard to keep things together. I was far out along that tightrope of life, y'know? And, really, I held on for quite a while. But, eventually . . . I crashed.
Things are coming together now, though. I feel like I'm digging out of the rubble all around me.
Now . . . I'm looking to recalibrate.
Trying to regain my equilibrium.
Seeking . . .
Yes. my One Little Word for 2017 is . . . balance.
And I am so. ready. for some!
