We'll I'm there. I'm complete....with this part of my journey and although I know I'll write again (I always do), this little blog has run it's course. Don't you worry....it's an amicable break-up; we've just grown apart. I'm leaving this web-home with fond memories. It's here that I've made fun of myself, shared my favorite things, documented my life, reflected on choices, vented, healed and ultimately moved up and on.
True to the "yo-yo" name, this blog captured the many ups and downs over my last year and a half. Just over 100 posts documenting my wins and losses. The ups were great and I'll treasure them always. The downs, well, they were shitty. But what can I say? I'm thankful. The bumps, bruises and tears paved the road to now. And now is pretty great.
I've changed direction. It took me awhile to even realize I had. I've detoured from the rocky yo-yo highway and I've merged onto a different stretch of road; a more scenic (dare I say smooth) route. I came to the realization that if I kept bracing myself for a life of ups and downs then that's what I would be sure to get. More highs. More lows. Well, fuck yo-yo's. I always hated those stupid, sure-to-be-knotted-up-within-seconds-pieces-of-shit-things anyways.
Light bulb. Hello? Ya, it took awhile for me to get it. It's how I've always looked at the world; always on guard, always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Well, what if I had a different perspective? What if I focused on the ride itself; the journey versus the road conditions? Wouldn't that provide for a more enjoyable trip? Perhaps. Perhaps not.
It's worth a try, right?
So, until we meet again, I'm wishing you sex, nachos, yeast-free vaginas and of course all my favorite things. Don't know what the F I'm talking about? You've got some reading to do.
Thank you for joining me, lifting me up, crying and laughing with me. It's been amazing and uniquely perfect.
So I guess that's it. At least for now.
So long, my friends.
