Life is full of ups and downs. Or so they say.
Lately my ups and downs have been to the extreme.
Having to renegotiate a big contract to keep my sanity.
Publishing a book for the first time.
Facing the fact that I have to say good-bye to my oldest dog before the end of the month.
Meeting my newest nephew for the first time.
Finding the balance between the more extreme ups and downs can be tough.
My hard exterior is easily penetrated by emotion.
I feel off kilter.
But I know the balance is there. Its comes back. It always does.
The world keeps spinning.
I realize how fortunate I am when I consider the ups and downs of others.
And things will feel normal again.
I wonder what it would be like to not have the ups and downs.
