Just Glad To Be On The Ride


This week has been reminiscent of being on a roller coaster. I've had my breath knocked out of me and my heart stopped when I learned some incredibly sad news involving a friend and her family. I've felt an enormous rush of adrenaline after a particularly promising phone call. I've learned that it is possible to have your heart break and soar simultaneously. I currently feel as if I'm suspended in air, waiting at that precise moment when the roller coaster crests the steepest incline, holding my breath unsure of what's next. Not knowing whether to grip the safety bar with both hands or to just let go, hold both hands above my head to just feel air rush past me. Truthfully, in this moment, in this time, I'm just glad to be on the ride.
