Have you ever been totally-super-psyched because your brother’s getting married again, but you’re even more excited this time because you seriously love his bride and you’re thrilled she’s going to be the sister you’ve always wanted. And then you have the time of your life at your brother’s wedding, because it was the best wedding ever, and you couldn’t be happier.
But then, just 24 hours later, you receive a phone call, only to find out your ex-boyfriend, a man you loved very deeply, lost his battle with addiction and depression, and took his own life, leaving you utterly devastated and overwhelmed with anger and sadness, and you can’t even talk about it because it hurts too much.
And then, just 24 hours after that, you come down with the worst sickness of all time – second only to having pneumonia. And you just can’t deal with anything else or anyone else, so you close your blog, log out of Facebook, ignore emails and text messages, and stay in bed bed for an entire week, watching Six Feet Under, because you’re too sore from dancing at the wedding, and too sad from burying your lover, and too tired from the sickness.
Well – I do.
And it was awful.
But now it’s time to pick myself up, dust myself off, and attempt to rejoin society.
And there’s no better way to get back into the blogging zone other than a 30 Day Photo Challenge. Come September 1st be prepared to see daily posts from me based on the prompts provided by the hosts and two of my favorite people: Mike WJ and Ziva.
I hope YOU will consider joining us too?
Lastly, I’d like to share this incredible video with you.
It’s beautiful, poignant, and absolutely inspiring.
Here’s to second chances.
