the me i like.

I was watching a video I made back in September. The movie hit time-mark 3:46 and I caught myself wondering, "where did that woman go?"

The me I like finds so many things to rejoice about. The me I like is contagious.

How did I catch what I've got now?

I'm trying not to be too hard on my newly-pregnant, heavily burdened self (the one who can hardly make it through a sentence without complaining), but I miss that woman.

I needed a good cry today. The type of cry that extracts all freewheeling emotional shrapnel. I found that cry here. And here. And I return constantly to this one for an uplifting purging of emotion (especially for a mother of boys).

Now to work on becoming that woman and more, made wiser through each trail.

Megan, those videos were just what I needed today. And as it turns out, they are just what I needed to pass along to some non-member friends who have been struggling lately emotionally and otherwise.

Thank you for sharing. I hope the sun comes out for you really soon. Hugs, Trina

I really touched me because I lost my little girl to cancer 3andhalf years ago...I love the fact that you share your feelings and write so well about them.Without knowing it you ve been a good friend to me ths whole past year, when i was so sick with pregnancy and dealing with so many emotions. I just wish I could live closer and come give you a hug...I hope you ll feel better very soon and finding your old self waiting for you to enjoy life better.
