The past couple months have been turbulent for me emotionally as I come to terms with some parts of my life that I’ve been unhappy with for quite some time. I am grateful for the love and support of my husband, who always encourages me to stay true to myself and my ideals, because I know that no matter what, at the end of the day he’s got my back.
And as a result, I am finding myself suddenly having Anais Nin “And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” moments, where I can no longer keep quiet. About roadblocks in relationships. About problems at work. About some of the imbalances in my homelife. It’s been uncomfortable at times. It’s taking risks. It’s making changes. But it’s necessary if I am to grow and finally get that bud to blossom. 🙂
Promise me you will not spend so much time
treading water and trying to keep your head above the waves
that you forget, truly forget
how much you have always loved to swim.
