I get to sleep in tomorrow. So THAT’S pretty winning.
Here are the countdowns:
Emma comes home: 21 days
Drop Dead Diva: 21 days
True Blood: 28 days
Weeds: 29 days
MY BIRTHDAY: 40 DAYS
I think it’s pretty clear what I’m looking forward to. In high school, I used to count down when I had 80 days left. What can I say, I really fuckin’ love birthdays. Especially my own.
Thanks to the Dahlsies to suggesting Eddie Izzard. I really love him. He’s super funny.
It’s not an excruciating pain. So that’s nice. It’s just like… a gentle throb, that wanting-to-be-in-love feeling. It’s so silly. It’s like… when you stub your toe and it throbs for a while. It’s not super painful but you can definitely feel it. But. I’m meditating now. Trying to become more comfortable/able to sit with my feelings.
“YOU taught me that, how to relentlessly give my whole heart despite the potential for pain.”
Thank you. I guess that’s what I need to keep doing. But for me, it’s still just a friends thing. I have to have to have to have to have to be patient. More meditation, methinks.
Oh and let me say something I was talking to Caity about the other day. Ok. So. When I started this blog, I knew where my journey would take me; I was at rock-bottom and I knew I would eventually reach a place where I could function normally again. I knew I’d reach a point where I’d feel awesome and ready to date and I’d be able to sleep and eat and do anything without crying. And tada, here I am! Winning more than ever! But I guess what baffles me is… I don’t know where my journey is taking me next. I still have 99 days of purposefully finding happiness every day. And I don’t know what comes next. I don’t know where my next high point is. I don’t know what it’ll feel like. Because I know my next high point isn’t going to be dating. So. What then? I don’t know. I don’t know. But. Ya know. I guess I just gotta relinquish control and enjoy the ride. My powers of foresight are terrible, but my powers of hindsight are STELLAR. So. I guess the next part is about patience. So. Meditation. For the next 99 days. So much for relinquishing control? Maybe meditation will help with that. I’ll keep you posted. Literally, I’ll be back tomorrow. 🙂

I know my truth, and I’m comfortably admitting that I yearn.
