It’s a new day, and I will try to observe things from a positive perspective. The thing about sadness is that I often find away to keep it at bay, until it becomes so overwhelming I have no choice but to feel it. Thinking back to a time when I was at the beach on the Sea of Japan, observing the pristine blue sky after the typhoon of the day before. Perhaps, the past few days have been somewhat of a personal typhoon cleansing the pain that had at one time taken hold . Now I will be like the mythical Phoenix , and rise from the ashes.
