Project 365 {week 25}

I took pictures of the good stuff this week.

But behind the good, there was some very hard stuff.

I’d like to say I am facing all of these challenges and emotions with remarkable aplomb.

I’d like to say I am proud of how I am handling it all.

But I am not.

So.

I’m not sure what to do other than just keep breathing.

  1. Sometimes, just being, and just breathing, is enough. Hugs, my friend. It’s June 23 in my part of the world, so Happy Birthday to Eddie!

  2. One of the reasons I love your blog is because you’re so honest. Life isn’t always pretty and you’re not afraid to share the ugly. When you’re breathing, you’re progressing. Always.
