I've had to let go of a few hopes and dreams along this path. The poppies helped me release a few people who meant so much. The poppies eased the pain of letting go.
Now, I'm back and feeling stronger than ever. I'm working toward my career goals...you know...the goals that will mean a steady paycheck? The writing is on the back burner while I deal with school, my job, and my personal life. Finding my balance is the hard part. So many changes and additions have definitely added a new layer to my complicated life and enriched it in so many ways.
I'm meeting so many new people on my yellow brick journey. Some are cowardly lions. Others are tin men and scarecrows. There are a couple of munchkins and my version of Toto who keep me company as I walk along. The wicked witch and her flying monkeys are off terrorizing others for now, but we are always looking skyward. Just in case.
So now that I have you updated, I probably should get ready for Psych class. Exploring the mind and its inner workings fascinates this modern day Dorothy.
Here's hoping that the wicked witch and her minions keep you off their radars!
