Part

Denise
heart-1137266_640It's like a part of your life disappeared -- the part that contained spontaneity and freedom and travel and levity.

The part that remains contains the worries, the stress and the fears. Unfortunately, that part seems to be the whole of your life.

It will take some work but you can add parts of what was into the part that is. Maybe spontaneity is about the music you listen to you. Perhaps freedom is about the perspective you choose to keep. Maybe travel is the time you take to savor your good moments. And, perhaps levity is your ability to find the funny, no matter what the day brings.

A part of your life changed. And, losing that part changed you. You can change the part that's left. You can work to create a full life that fills in a way you never dreamed possible. That part, that part you fought so hard to create, will become the part you treasure most. It's the part that shows how your courage fills up a hole.

I find it interesting that after more than a year since mom passed away, I still enjoy one of my sanity saving habits from when I was her full time caregiver. I still, on occasion, stop in at McDonalds, buy a drink at the drive through and then pull into the parking lot to read my Kindle app on my phone and enjoy the drink. Even though I could go home, I still enjoy the alone time, away from the normal responsibilities of being a homeowner, wife, and (ahem) responsible adult.
