(S)tay positive and be a help not a hindrance. We will almost surely get through this dark patch, but it is already changing what I thought the next few years would look like.

I spoke with a friend yesterday, and realized after I got off the phone, that every time he suggested a new path to open up, I found myself running back to the past and what I wanted things to be like rather than letting go and embracing or at least being open to what is and what might be.

Letting go, I'm not even sure what I was holding on to, oh yeah, comfort.
