waiting for the fall

I knew when this summer started that there wasn't going to be much summer in my summer.

I thought I was okay with that.

But now, here I am, staring down the barrel of August.

And I feel like I'm standing on the edge of cliff.

And I know it's a long, long way down.

And I know there's nothing but rocks at the bottom.

And I know I don't have a parachute.

And I know that, at any moment, someone is going to come up behind me.

And push.

I saw something somewhere (Pinterest maybe?) that said "If you are depressed, you're living in the past. If you are anxious, you're living in the future. If you are at peace, you're living in the present."

Enjoy each day as it comes. Focus on the fact that TODAY is summer.

Hear that "chop chop chop chop chop chop" in the distance? That's me! I'm in a helicopter and I'm going to throw a rope down to the cliff and you're going to rapel up it and then I'm going to whisk you away to a beach where the waves lap gently on the shore and the breeze keeps you cool and there's iced tea and cookies.
