background-68622_640You're red.

In your  head, you're reading the riot act to anyone who will listen. No, you can't do that! No, you don't have time for this! No, you don't know how! No, you don't know why!

In essence:


You're seeing red because you don't want to see what's happening, what you'll have to do, what you'll soon face.

You'd much rather put on your rose-colored glasses and just see that's everything's okay.

You don't have to put on blinders. As heartbreaking and terrifying and worrying as the future may seem, you are in your present. In this moment, you have a chance to ask for help, to take a breath, to make a memory, to remind yourself how far you've come.

You'll see red when you take your eye off this moment. In this moment, you are doing your best (which is simply spectacular), you are making it work, you are okay.

You are okay.

Denise, WOW! That post was EXACTLY what I needed to read after today. Thank you so much. I swear, it seems as though some of you are psychic; and, you know what I need to hear, at the moment I need to hear it. Thank you, from the deepest depths of my heart. It's been a rough day, and you just made it brighter.

Sounds just like me! I worried for days because I saw a little red mark on my mom's bottom, guess what, it's a little bed sore, guess what else, I'm dealing with it. I'm doing what I need to do. I'm just so fortunate to have somewhere to go to ask questions and vent. I'm not so alone that way, I have someone who understands. I'm not seeing RED by myself! Thank you!


That's why I write -- to realize how fortunate I am today and to forget about tomorrow for a bit.
