I’ve been a little under the weather so this morning I decided to catch up with reading some amazing blogs and I noticed one of my favorites, Spiritualjourney17, passed me this Quote Challenge torch! Spiritualjourney17: Please forgive me for the delay in a response.
This challenge catches me by surprise because it took me to a place I rarely go… but challenge accepted! Here’s my quote:
The story behind the quote: Years ago I lost my Mom. It was September. Every September thereafter life and time stood still. I stopped existing and started floating. Riding the waves of the familiar routines that life allowed. Moments in time danced around me but I couldn’t see them so I couldn’t dance with them. It took more than 20 years for me to realize that each September I was no longer living. I’m not sure how I found my way back to here: Awareness. I crawl now beyond a darkness of grief I never knew existed. I’m now learning to breathe through September.
1) Float was my first thought but my other thoughts were:
2) Stuck: Sometimes you don’t know you’re stuck until you step outside of yourself.
Thanks again, Spiritualjourney17! And so the challenge continues:
Pick one or three quotes.
Challenge three different bloggers.
I’m passing the torch to my three nominees:
No pressure, just for fun. Best wishes to all!
