Liberating to not have to try to be pretty, happy and positive. I am more and more okay with being sad and whatever other emotions come during this process, and not groveling in it, just not hiding it to try and protect others from feeling uncomfortable. Too much energy to keep up appearances, and our real friends get it. Those that cannot handle the reality, well...see ya! Already I am marking off some folks from my circle. Others are closer than ever.
Making breakfast soon, eggs, sausage, potatoes, grits, waffles with blueberry syrup, coffee and juice! What a blessing to enjoy food again.
