Hello there, dearest friends! First and foremost I would like to thank all of you who have sent me those comforting messages through the blog and email following my last post. I was so touched and appreciate all of them. You made me feel that I was not alone in my cocoon and that it was not a crime to feel vulnerable, that it was just me being human and not because I was weak. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
I tried channeling my frustration somewhere else and turn it into something positive. I spent time with the boys, talked to them about their college plans which proved to be a good motivational move as they were all inspired and started making plans for a better school year ahead. I also put myself in a self imposed fitness challenge of 90 days starting a few weeks back. I figured, it has been a while since I last took my fitness seriously. So I started a tailor made program to give myself a kick start. It was not easy to get back on track but it was worth it.
In between looking for potential colleges for the boys, doing research for my fitness challenge and working out, I basically had less time to dwell in stuff that was consuming me. Some things are not for me to change, they are way beyond my control, "Way above our pay grade" as Captain put it. In short, I feel a lot better today.. despite the hot weather that is still going strong.
Thank you again for being there.. sending all of you a big hug and will be back soon!
