Seeking Resilience

This week. 

This week may live in infamy as one of the most stressful, soul-crushing weeks ever. Work-wise, at least.

I had all intentions to keep up with the blog every day in May challenge, but its just been out of my control these past several days. Its been one of those weeks where you think you make progress, you think you overcome obstacles... only to be knocked down again and again, further down the second, third, and fourth time around.

I do hope to regroup, rejuvenate, and get back to posting regularly. But right now what I need is a vacation on a remote island far, far away with no email, no responsibilities, a cold drink in my hand, and a book to numb my brain. 

That's not happening, unfortunately.

Whelp, anyways. A favorite picture of myself and why? I've posted this picture before, but it feels particularly fitting today. I wish it were better quality but I lost the original when my computer crashed awhile back, so the facebook relic will have to suffice.

To be honest, despite the idyllic setting, I was not in a happy place at the time this picture was taken. Putting things in perspective, this time in my life was actually far more personally trying than what I am dealing with right now. 

BUT, I was actively searching refuge and rejuvenation, and that search and constant struggle to rise above carried me through difficult times. So not only am I sitting on the beach reading, as I would love to be doing right now... its also quite in line with my current situation. Inspiration... you could say, even if its hard to soak in at the moment.

Seek out resilience.
