I am beginning to recognize the waves more quickly. Instead of struggling at their onslaught, this morning I surrendered. I sat down, bowed my head and let them wash over me. I felt my body shake with sobs, my breath catch, the tears drip off my chin. Instead of fighting I let it happen and when it passed and I could breathe again, I stood up, put on some soul-healing music and continued with the day.
If only it were always that simple.
Perhaps it is.
