Allow me to start by saying that I received and appreciate all of your comments, texts, emails and Facebook posts expressing your love, concern and support after my post last night. I cannot begin to tell you how much I appreciate all of you and the fact that I have so many people there for me, who understand.
I've never been good at goodbyes. And last night's goodbye was especially hard for me. I think it is important for me to acknowledge the feelings that I am having, process them, and also manage to keep those emotions in check. I give myself permission to FEEL! At the same time, there is a balance somewhere in there that I strive to find so that I don't allow all of that emotion to become an unhealthy feeling of sadness.
So, I asked myself..."What could I do today to help keep me in a healthy place?" The Answer?
Today was a day to pamper and spoil...myself!
Got my nails done (Thank you, Jan), had a nice lunch with Jill, bought some new perfume, had a wonderful, long phone chat with my mom ....not a bad day!
I had a few tears here and there but overall, the day was a success and a nice "transition" day.
On the agenda for tomorrow?
Me thinks I'd like a new pair of jeans, and maybe a couple new tops as well! Dinner and a movie with great friends tomorrow night is bound to be loads of fun!
And before I know it, the memories of how "sad" it was to say goodbye, will be replaced with all of the happy memories I have of our journey and the new memories that are being created as our journey continues to unfold!
