Well, it has been quite some time since my last post. A LOT has happened. A lot a lot. Like… needing a new word for “a lot”. I actually applied and was offered a position at the New Hanover County Department of Social Services and kicked my ol’ awful position in Forsyth county to the wayside, picked up my life, and moved back home. Been beaten down emotionally for a while, and was ready for something new. Beaten down mainly by myself, which is pretty bad. I haven’t had as much appreciation for myself lately as I should. Knowing how to is really difficult for me for some reason. I’m trying to pick up the pieces, but it’s as useless and as difficult as attempting to swim against the ocean’s powerful current. I let bad in, keep it in and forbid the good to enter or stay. I do love my new job and being in my semi-hometown and still keep in contact with my good friends from Winston. That, I feel good about. I’ve tried to stay as busy as possible. I’ve been reading. Playing guitar. Getting rest. Writing. Clearly, neglecting this blog. I hope and pray for time to heal me and I hope my efforts also don’t go unnnoticed. Time will tell.
