Today was a lot of things. Not all of them good, but not all of them bad. I think I'm deciding to call today "empowering".
I could go into detail about how miserable a day it was (and trust me, it was pretty awful), but you know what? It's the end of the day and I'm alive to tell. I took care of some serious business today that I'm not sure I would've said I could handle on my own. I did it. Alone.
At one point, I was driving home sobbing and I thought about bungee jumping. Days like today are the reason why that was so important. I did that. By myself. I did today. By myself. I am capable of handling scary, nasty, awful, miserable situations by myself. (OK, I may have called my mom and brother for support at a couple points, but the actual doing of what needed to be done was all me.) MOTU was incommunicado today, so I was the only person I could rely on. And I. DID. IT.
I know this is enigmatic and completely unrelated to quilting, but today was a day I can be proud of, in spite of a few tears. I did good. I did the best I could, and it's enough.
I hope everyone else had an empowering day too.
