Bleak Sunshine

Good morning my fellow readers! Gosh, the weather has been so bleak this week. What does bleak mean?

  1. (of an area of land) lacking vegetation and exposed to the elements
  2. (of a building or room) charmless and inhospitable; dreary
  3. (of the weather) cold and miserable

I reread my blog posts a lot and I’ve noticed that a few of my previous posts have also been bleak. My apologies. I’ve got a lot going on and it’s hard to keep up.

And then there’s the fact that 14th December is approaching and I am very aware of it approaching. It is the day I left Michigan a year ago. It’s a hard day for me. I discussed this issue with my best friend. I don’t know how I will react. I don’t know if I’ll feel numb or be really upset. A part of me wants to feel something.

And if I’m aware of the 14th approaching, then I’m hyper aware of the 24th approaching which is an even worse day for me. Gosh I miss Michigan. And I miss New York. Terribly. In my blog, I have made reference to Michigan and New York often within this past year. It is obvious that even though a year has passed, a part of me is still there. And most certainly, I want to be there. Yes, this is so bleak!

However, I think there’s something incredible to get out of bleakness. Out of this bleak situation is my undying strength, patience and determination – three key words that are highly important to me. It is a bleak sunshine. We can live through it and strive. That’s what being human is all about.

We can all relate to bleakness. Life’s messy that way. I promise my upcoming posts won’t be, again, bleak. Keep reading and I hope you get something out of my random thoughts too.
