The sun broke through and the fog lifted yesterday morning as I drove down the hill to my place of employment. I had this realization that some of the stresses I had been carrying in my heart had been lifted. I am of the belief that we are only given as much as we can handle - generally we can handle more than we think we can and so we stretch and grow and suffer gently as we are molded into our best selves - but I had really reached a point that I had reached my maximum. I truly felt that I could not handle any more misadventures/ broken appliances/ obstinate youth/ surprise bills/ work drama. The weekend brought more - and then without any participation my part - the final straw was resolved. Made better. It was not a perfect solution but it was one I could cope with. There was this real sense that I was in a relationship with the universe and it was a two way street. There was a point where I could say it is enough and God saw it was so and relented. Does that make sense? It truly was enough - and there was a recognition that I needed a break and I got it and I was EXTREMELY thankful. And rejuvenated and energized - I can pick myself up, dust myself off and rally on.
Forward my friends.
