The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.~Benjamin Franklin
I realized I am just going in circles with my parents and I need to change what I do in order for the results to be different. It's time to let go of my parents. June 1 is the 35th anniversary of when they adopted me and I think having a letting go ceremony on that day would be exactly what my soul and heart needs. It's time stop letting them control me. I also think June 1 will be a good day to reflect on all the good times I had with my parents. Some of my favorite memories are the ones I shared with my parents.
I feel better just thinking about all of this. I think the next 3 weeks will be hard, but something I have to do in order to move forward.
This is my new favorite picture of Bonk:
Just looking at her sweet face calms me down and reminds me what it's all about. You have no idea how much I love this cat.
A special note to all my friends: I know it's been a long year with me, but I am so thankful for the countless hours you have listened, all the times you have called just to check in on me, all the meals you have invited me to share with you, all the words of encouragement and love and for letting me know that I am never alone. It's because of all of you that I have learned how to not let life get me down and it's your hand that has helped me get back on my feet. Each of you are a reflection of the love that God has for me. I thank you and love you.
