I meant to pack it to open after I finished my marathon in Minnesota. It felt wrong to open it beforehand because I wanted to really earn it. In the hoopla of packing for the family and the pup, I forgot about it and it sat on the bottom step leading upstairs.
Now it's been two weeks since the marathon and I can't finish my marathon write up and I can't open the package.
Here's the thing. You just have to be enough for yourself. I just have to be enough for myself.**
Sometimes all the words in the world don't sink in. So I'm working on it. I just wanted to share it here in case you're working on it, too. Sometimes life seems so shiny and pretty for everyone else. It isn't.
So let's keep working and loving, striving and caring. For ourselves and for others.
