This is my current challenge as the underpinings of my walk through life has changed. The architecture is different and varied. Someone who once provided validation to my very being is no longer there; no longer central to my every thought, to my waking and my sleeping.
The number of times in a day I file a thought away and want – itch in fact – to share an impression, an event, a sense, a feeling. I can never do that again. So that saddens me greatly. But I choose not to let that drag me down. I am much too busy and have in fact increased my essential busy-ness to much_more_busyness to exhaust me so the sadness does not overwhelm or overcome me…… so my focus is more on what I am able to positively contribute, (somewhere, somehow) leaving less for what I have lost.
Time tried and true survival techniques for me.
