WHEN LIFE IS POURING

... set fire to the rain.   Which is what I've been trying to do lately.  The past two weeks have been rough for a number of reasons and just because when it rains, it pours.  At least it seems so in my life.

In the past couple of weeks, I have seen what a dark, fallen world this is.  I have also seen what an incredibly beautiful opportunity it is and without the valleys, we would never be able to experience the peaks.  I read an article recently that discussed the fact that people these days do not allow themselves to feel negative emotions with the idea of protecting themselves.  Ultimately, this leads to a trap where they cannot feel the positive ones either.  Personally, I do not want to go through life on a flatline of emotion.

And just to put it out there, I am beyond blessed with my unconditionally supportive husband, my family I would not trade the world for, and friends who truly care.  I love you all and you take up my whole heart.
