I’m having a moment. The emotional impact of this entire year has started to really hit me this weekend. Such a year filled with so many obstacles and so much loss. Everything was perfect in 2011; what happened? So much change. A fantastic year professionally, which I am thankful for, but a horrible year personally. I just want everything to go back to normal. I hate that I will have to get used to a new normal. I want the old normal. I can’t see through the fog yet that we’ll come out on the other side unscathed. Maybe we won’t be unscathed. I feel like we already have been bruised and shattered and disappointed. I just haven’t gotten through this selfish moment I’m self-absorbed in yet to be able to believe that the chips will fall as they’re supposed to fall. They always do; why is it always so difficult to see that while they’re still up in the air?
