when you inhale the good and exhale the bad

i have been distracted, i apologize dear friends. this morning i woke to the most beautiful fog, yet for the first time in a long while my head is not in such a place, fog that is..........

 i am sorry i paused while writing you just now, see i am at the cafe sitting by a window and my eyes came across a puddle, the rain plays with that puddle it is beautiful and simple.  the other morning i inhaled the worst kind of morning only to later exhale the best thing that is happened in a long while. ( i do not mean to be so secretive, but i am trying to be cautious) it got me thinking about you, yes you i wondered if you were scared of something or afraid to speak up or stand your ground. i wondered what you feared would happen. i am not going to write and tell you to go for it, because if you do the worst thing you suspect might just happen, yes it might.  what i will tell you is that even if it does what might surprise you is how you handle it after that, how you feel about doing it might be the best thing for you, because you just might think to yourself i am glad i am me and that i am not them and sometimes we need reminder of that very difference.

It's nice to sit down and write out pieces of heavy thoughts even if you don't fully describe them; a purge of emotion.

I love the cardinal at your window.

It is true that good can come from something bad isn't it? You learn something new about yourself when faced with a tough situation, I know this to be very true. And that is what life is all about, learning, learning how to deal with whatever life throws at you and taking chances. I really enjoy reading your posts. And those birdies look so happy, what a lovely view for you to see from your kitchen :)
