After… 🙂 (but please pardon my lack of make up lol)
“So you don’t have the luxury of ever (ever) saying that there’s nothing magical in those bones of yours.
You don’t get to say that you’re boring or plain or weak or pathetic.
You are the universe. You are star-stuff.
And there is nothing more miraculous than that.”
A little positivity after my pity party…
This defines me divorce, right here in one sentence.
Several years ago I lived with a roommate who had this poster on her refrigerator, along with a little square magnet to put over how you were feeling that day. It came to mind today as I was thinking how quickly my moods change lately. As someone with bipolar disorder I am used to rapidly changing moods, however (LUCKILY!) these are much less severe than what I experience when I am not on medication.
But I do feel like I need one of these posters to carry around with me to illustrate how I am feeling…since it changes every few minutes. People ask “how are you?” (Gee I just love that question!) and I never know what to say. So I think I’ll just carry one of these posters around and point…”right this minute? THIS one.” (Maybe along with a “rate your pain on a scale of 1-10” chart, that way we can cover emotional and physical pain in less than 30 seconds and I don’t have to say anything!)
*I am not trying to say that I don’t appreciate peoples concern, I do! And please, ask away if you really want to know how I feel…but prepared for the truth if you ask. Ain’t nobody got time for sugar-coatin’ stuff.
Today’s emotions? Anger. Sadness. Guilt. (Pretty much the usual culprits)
Perfectly said, Mr. Hemingway. :]
My wish for everyone this year. ❤
