Starting another day

"Part of every misery, so to speak, the misery's shadow or reflection: the fact that you don't merely suffer but have to keep thinking about the fact that you suffer. I not only live each endless day in grief, but live each day thinking about liviving each day in grief."-C.S. Lewis

I know I need to snap out of the funk I've been in again but the last few days have sucked.

"Happiness is beneficial for the body, but it is grief that develops the mind."-Marcel Proust

I would choose a less developed mind right now.

"There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love."-Washington Irving

I agree.

"Grief is in two parts. The first is loss. The second is the remaking of life."-Anne Roiphe

I keep hoping to wake up from sleep with answers to all my questions.

I'm still waiting.

"Grief can be the garden of compassion. If you keep your heart open through everything, your pain can become your greatest ally in your life's search for love and wisdom."-Rumi

I hope so.
