Why can't I do with days what I do with those damned chocolates...cut them open to see if I like what's inside. If I don't, I toss it. If I do, I enjoy it.
I guess it's just what life is, but life would be a whole lot easier if I could plan for the emotional ups and downs...maybe soften my knees a bit and find a solid balance so that I can ride the rougher waves a bit better. (Thank you, TO'C...your metaphor has helped me more than I can say.)
Just writing this out helps me process my own crap. Clearly, I need to just learn to let go and let life (and myself) be what it is. It's hard though (she says, clearly whining her way through the morning).
So, I guess I just take a bite and hope that it doesn't taste too bad. (Spitting it back out really isn't an option, though god knows I've tried!)
I do hate me a coconut cream though, ya know.
Luckily, today is much more of a salted caramel.
