Yeah, I feel a bit like that.
I blame 2016, but the truth is I came storming in with the biggest expectations you wouldn't believe. In fact I didn't even realize I had these enormous expectations until they were shattering and collecting at my feet and I melted down.
So, Happy New Year! I'm going to try this again. I'm going to try and check in and peek in that closet to see what grandiose expectations my wild imagination may have created and then have a reality check so this isn't a really long year with a lot of tears and throwing teapots. (I didn't throw a teapot. But I may have wanted to.)
I have been focusing quite a bit on my word for 2016 and here are the first fruits of the picture project. With all the frustrations and tears and sore throat with subsequent coughing and aches, the thing I have needed most is a pause and some grace and a new start. Repeat.
