Sometimes when it feels like the life you thought you knew is crumbling down around you, shift your perspective.
Maybe it's crumbling down to give you an escape route.
I know this is true of my life... but sometimes it's hard to appreciate it when the escape can be so painful.
A confession: I have frequently been accused of being pessimistic; I always thought that I was just being realistic. A very good friend told me last night that she thought the whole divorce situation had made me a more optimistic person. I respectfully disagreed with her, thinking about how cynical I feel like I've become, but maybe she was right.... maybe it's too recent to see what kind of changes this will bring to me as a person. I'll let you know...
