It has been an emotionally rough week.
I am still coping with the loss on my dear mother, it has been exactly a month from her untimely departure, and on the heels of this, the fresh memory of my beloved father’s passing only two years earlier.
I can safely say that is has been a rough couple of years.
This has given me fuel to reignite my internal fire and go after what makes me feel whole.
But first I must mourn their passing, I must face a world without their guidance and love.
I have a lot of positive things in my life, my amazing partner in crime, with whom I have formed an amazing family, inspiring friends who push and encourage all my craziness, and of course this life-long project that gives me so much satisfaction.
I have come to realize that I haven’t permitted myself to feel angry or sad about my loss.
That time has come.
I must cry.
I must mourn.
But more importantly, I must honor what they taught me and go out and find happiness.
With that in mind, I shall go and chase those goals.
Go and chase all that knowledge hidden away in my precious books, and share that life-affirming feeling with all of you.
I’ll be back really soon, for now, I am off to read.
And to think about my mom and dad walking eternally, hand in hand, in their beautiful purple desert.
