How much joy can I allow?
I can, I do and I’m willing to allow ALL THE JOY in.
Now, I’m not talking about the joy my children, the Husband or our lives bring. Those go without saying. Those things are immeasurable.
I’m talking about all the things *I* love to do/used to do. Those are the things that require me to be ALONE for more than 5 minutes, or 15 minutes or even an hour. All of it has been put on hold and will continue to be on hold for the next 18 years. It’s a sacrifice my über independent/introverted self struggles to accept almost daily.
And so, I TRY to steal moments here and there. A quick doodle, a favorite song or movie on repeat, a shuffle of the cards, writing blog entries on my phone… Hell, online shopping even! Those little things? All the little stolen seconds? They add up over time. And it helps.
