This time of year is so draining. It’s not just the heat.
It’s the heart. It’s the mind. Its the profound memories. It’s the things you have no control over. The insights.
Certain times of years remind you of what you lost and/or what you let go of. Things happen that open your eyes wider so you see truth. Moments and truths that give you “ah ha’s”, “duh’s”, and “well, shit’s”. Things that are said or done that define for you….
Define family and friendship.
But remember and be open to the fact that they can define the lack of each just as quickly. Sometimes louder.
You begin to see things for what they are worth. Sometimes what you thought was worth something turns out to be worthless. And that can change you.
Let those worthless things go. Let any change be for a better you.
Stick to the worthwhile things that are defined…
The worthwhile love. The worthwhile family and friendships.
Stick with those who are courageous, wise, and adaptable.
And make any changes you need to be courageous, wise, and adaptable yourself.
A worthwhile you.
