stranded

I'm still swimming. It's difficult. The current is constantly changing, leaving me to paddle and fight even more furiously to keep up. But this is what I have to do to keep from drowning. Some days I feel incredibly positive about making it to shore. Other days, a huge wave hits, and part of me wants to stop paddling, stop fighting.

Yet, here I am - still trying to make the best of my situation out here at sea.

Such a good metaphor. ((hugs))

(((hugs))), Katie. I wish someone could throw you a life preserver or come rescue you in a little life boat. Or, at the very least, I wish the waters would calm for you. You don't deserve such a choppy ride.

Perfect metaphor! I feel the same way a lot of the time. Even when things seem to be going right there is just that overwhelmed feeling that is pretty constant! I hope our life rafts are on their way!

I'm sensing choppy waves out there for you, and I hope someone throws you a lifejacket soon.

Kelly said...

I agree...I wish I had a life preserver or, if not, a raft.

I know how you feel. It hurts and it's scary and it is heartbreaking and it sucks. You are such a fighter Katie, you're going to make it to calmer waters. Sending you tons of love and support sweet friend.

I can relate. This whole journey is fatiguing and ebbs and flows all the time. It's hard to keep up. Hugs to you.

(tears)So beautifuly put. Its hard floating in these waters knowing the shore is there and everyone else has already made camp.

I sure hope you can trade in your swimmies for a boat very soon.
sending hugs

I wish I could pull up in a big beautiful luxurious Yacht and rescue you...take you to baby island and bring you back to shore with your brand new family. It's nice to dream right?! xoxox

This was perfect. I feel this way some days, a lot lately. It's nice to know someone else feels the same way,even about different situations.

Thank you.

Treading water - it's very difficult. Here's hoping that a nice, gentle wave comes along. And carries you exactly where you want to go.

Basic Girl said...
