C.S. Lewis
“Crying is all right in its way while it lasts. But you have to stop sooner or later, and then you still have to decide what to do.”
― C.S. LewisThe Silver Chair.          

HEY help I'm drowning over here.
I remember my first divorce, what a tragedy at least it appeared that way.  My life became a storm roller coaster with only one rider me. Oh how I cried. Speak about decisions, could not decide to make one. I cried for weeks. I was pregnant and did not know how or what the future held. One evening my dad entered what I called the crying room. He opens the door softly, and with his comforting voice he said, "don't you think you've cried enough." My dad closed the door. As I laid their hearing the sound of his voice, the tears began to dry up. Could it be my subconscious mind absorbed his question? I am not sure but, it spoke to my spirit and my heart heard it. The beginning of a new chapter began, as one ended.
What I decided, decisions become challenging when our life is in a world wind.  Thinking is no longer the priority, and leaving important things undone happens too. The question becomes: How does one recover and stop the roller coaster? Will it be easy? No, are there times when isolation and despair take over yes! The question becomes, What becomes of your life after tragedy strikes? Let's address the first question, to stop any roller coaster you have to decide it's time to stop. Once you make a decision to stop, it will be time to get off. Taking that first step to unleash yourself is difficult but, a must. 
What a breath of fresh air when the roller coaster stops, the ground may feel quite shaky so brace yourself. Will you have intermittent sorrow? Absolutely, but know that life goes on and living is a must. At, least for me it was. Tragedy will hit each of us in one way or another it is apart of life. In order to recover one must exams self, and reorganized daily activities. New beginnings are a great place to start. Learning how to balance activity and rest are key component during recovery. You may need to consider counseling too. Learn how to identify happiness, keep hope alive and begin living again. Was it rough for me to start again? Absolutely, but after the tears stop flowing, my decisions and choices became clear and I finally embraced hope. It's OK to cry for a time but after you stop crying you will need to make a decision. Here's to healthy decisions.

  2. We have to master our own minds to be masterminds of anything in our lives. We can allow the emotions to flow in and out of us and march on. Just as you eloquently shared with us. =)

    I've been in similar situations where I had to leave a marriage... overcome my fear of driving... went halfway across the country. But now- my life is beginning to amount to great things. It was all worth it. Thank you for sharing such sensitive stuff about your life. God bless you, Carolyn! =)

  5. We all will face tragedy in our life. Of course at that moment that is all we can really focus on, but we must pick ourselves back up and place our foot on solid ground. You make a great point that the ground may seem a bit shaky but if we regain our focus and surround ourselves with loved ones we can make it one step at a time. Reorganizing our priorities and giving ourselves a new focus helps as well. Thanks for sharing.
