Weathering the Storm

Learning about yourself and who you are is truly a step-by-step process, one day at a time. It is a journey of self-discovery against the backdrop of grieving the end of a marriage. There will be moments of excitement and joy contrasted with moments of deep sadness over the letting go of a life that is no more
~J Daniels

As I walk this journey and as I feel that I might be coming out on the other side, no truer words have been spoken than the ones above. All the emotions had to be felt, all the tears had to be shed. J. Daniels shared this little spark of wisdom but she shared so much more with me. She slowly and tenderly showed me how to reach, deep within, and find something more than that person I had crafted to fit into the crazy life I had been given. She gave me the hope of a better tomorrow and helped reveal a person who loved life, who was not always filled with fear and who found wonder in connecting with new people. I can now love more abundantly than I ever thought possible. 

J. Daniels is just one more thing to be grateful for and I am.

If you are in a storm, hold on tight. It might not be tomorrow or the next day but the storm will diminish.....better days are coming.
