February has kind of been a Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Month. As an adult, misfortunes gravitate towards slightly more serious than not getting the prize from the junk food container. Career possibilities dissolve. People disappoint you. Cancer strikes your family. Hope disappears. Still, life is about the ride. The bad days with the good. And waiting things out is sometimes the best course of action you can take.
That's what I've done this month. I've been waiting it out. Waiting to see if my mom is healed. Waiting to hear about a new opportunity. Waiting for feelings to dissipate and drift away, so I can move on.
I know these things will come. If I keep my eyes open, an opportunity will arise. If I keep my spirits up, healing will occur in one form or another. And yes, if I let my heart heal, love will eventually spring up. Life will roll around and surprise me in a good way again.
Some days are like this. You just have to wait.
