a perfect balance of elation and heartbreak

This is my new blogging home, so I will be sharing some deep shit with you from time to time, taking a break from hawking my book like my life depends on it.

I'm sorry. And you're welcome.

I thought about sharing all the details of the elation and heartbreak here but to be honest, I'm not quite ready for that yet. Let's just say that my weekend was a roller coaster that involved events ranging from being dumped by a lover of two years and finding out that I didn't get the job I'd interviewed for recently to having an amazing time with friends and seeing my alma mater win a very important game, clenching a title in the process.

Then there was shutting down my profile on the site my blog was on, which was a huge deal, a both happy and sad occasion in many ways.

I feel an emptiness inside right now that is shaking me to my core. But, I also know this is life. The ups and the downs - although not normally seen in such close juxtaposition - this is life. We have to roll with the tide, make the best choices we can make and then accept the things we can't control.

I know this, and I will keep telling myself those words as I heal. But it's going to take awhile. Please bear with me.


  1. I am so sorry for the shitty parts of your weekend...I'm glad it was tempered with some good stuff too...hugs :)

    1. Thanks, it's not like this wasnt expected eventually, I just thought that I'd have a few more months and some time to transition my mindset. I'm pretty angry right now. We'll see how I feel in a few days.

  2. Wasn't expecting the words "dumped" and "lover" to appear in the same sentence given all that's been going on the last few months. Hope you're okay and enjoy your non-in-control time. Hugs.

    1. I wasn't expecting to write them, not for a few more months anyway.

      I don't know if you read the book but the situation is parallel. I just didn't think the end would come just yet.

  3. The bad, the good and the ugly, sounds like a title for another book. Things will get better, they always do. Hang in there.
