Back at it
I haven’t been here in a while. Truthfully, life has been hitting me hard lately. I’ve been spending a lot of time reflecting and “putting pen to paper” is cathartic but also forces me to acknowledge the truth.
Tim wrote a quick installment this morning about how his writing always reveals the truth and I feel that in my soul.
Work has been exceptionally busy.
Self-reflection and healing are exhausting.
Baseball has me and the kids at the field 5 days a week.
The fear of inflation and the disruptions of supply chains is so real.
I have come to terms with the reality that there is no cavalry coming. I do my best to wake up, suit up, show up, and put one foot in front of the other.
I have a hard time writing about any of this stuff without feeling guilty as the war in Ukraine continues. My empathetic heart feels so heavy and my “problems” feel so insignificant.
It feels nice to word vomit here. Discipline in my writing is so important to me. Way more important than the pressure of feeling like I cannot write unless I have something profound to write.
Happy to be back.
I hope all of you beautiful people have a great week. Be kind - we all need it.
