We got sucker punched by Life yet again at Casa de Loco and I've just been trying to breathe and keep it together. I know things could be much, much worse because I see those situations every single day in my job. But right now it feels like we are being bullied by Life and I don't know how much fight we have left in us. I saw a tweet yesterday "if you're going through hell just keep going." That is what I'm trying to do.
Reading and blogging keeps me sane and these are ones you SHOULD NOT MISS!
Kathleen wrote a beautiful and heart wrenching piece about going back and saying goodbye. The Long Way Home brought back such vivid memories of my own summer trips to visit family in upstate New York. One of my most favoritist (I know that's not a real word) writing communities, Yeah Write selected it as an Editor's Pick this week.
A Man Named Joe is a complex, vivid piece about memories and unanswered questions. Christie is another fantastic writer I discovered thanks to Erica and her amazing Yeah Write community.
Kim was there when I DESPERATELY needed a laugh this week. Here she fantasizes about owning a magazine. Here's hoping she does a cover model search contest because I am ALL OVER it.
What were your favorite reads of the week? I am desperate for funny and tales of overcoming when life gives you the beat down.
