Sleepy Sundays: Streams


The female character in this piece is experiencing strong feelings of sadness and isolation. I was inspired by some of the reading I’ve been doing lately that has to do with women dealing with loss. There has also been a number of articles floating around the blogosphere about women dealing with infertility. My sister and I had a conversation about this recently. Due to some of our late mother’s own medical issues we wondered if we may have difficulty ourselves. Whatever the future holds, I plan not to go at it alone. I’m inspired by the strength of these beautiful women. Their ability to share their stories without fear of judgment is empowering to say the least.

Even though the tears may stream, they won’t go on forever. You will smile again.

Have you ever gone through something that made you feel lost/isolated? How did you get through it? Please share.

Have a smiling Sunday!

Tiesto – Just Be: “I was lost, and I’m still lost, but I feel so much better.”
Before The Queen I was engaged to my college sweetheart. The relationship splintered and we went our separate ways, and for a long time I was very lost. After 3 years of defining who I was by who we were as a couple, I had no idea who I really was, or what I was supposed to do. It was suffocating at times. I’m not sure I can even really explain how I got out of it, other than just waking up every day and carrying on with life… I did do a lot of soul searching, and I tried to return to who I was before the relationship (which didn’t work, of course). And somehow I stumbled upon the few truths of what I needed in my life to be happy…

That is such an inspiring truth, friend. So many of us get wrapped up in a relationship & lose our identity. It’s important to work together but also realize we have our own separate life too. You highlighted that beautifully here.
I’m glad you found someone that fits you & loves the way you deserve. ❤
