drawing the line

rain rain go away

sometimes, you just have to draw a line and say, i go here and no farther. and sometimes, you have to realize that it goes both ways. and the line is drawn for you, here and no farther. and when that happens at a time when you've used masses of energy, you can also reach your own internal line and just that one small step over it makes everything deflate and the tears come and you just can't help it, because there's no more energy left. and that's just life. and tomorrow will be another day and you will get your energy back and go on...drawing lines and having lines drawn. and feeling that mid-atlantic feeling and trying to make sense of it all. and it won't always make sense. and there will be tears again. but it will be ok. it always is. life is messy and wonderful and full of both tears and laughter and ultimately, we wouldn't have it any other way.

we wouldnt have it any other way, so true.
how dull life would be always going the way we want it to.
sometimes you spill your glass of water and thats enough to let those tears flow that have just been waiting to finally be allowed to leave your eyes. exactly that happened to me yesterday. the line was reached.
i feel you on this post and take your word for it: it will be ok.

Some days I, too, have to draw the line and say "no more." It's only when I finally get the courage to do so, that I can regroup and start over. Everything I've done so far has led me to this place and much as I hate to admit it, only I can pick myself back up and move on. Hugs to you!
