the week tested my mettle in more ways than one. it made me cancel plans to celebrate with my very dear friend one of those milestone birthdays. missing the event pained me deeply and will haunt me for days, if not weeks to come. it made me concerned over my financial present and scared me shit-less over my financial future. it made me cry. it made me sick. it made me tired, weary, and just . . . damn.
i held it together, mostly. thanks in large part to the presence and help of a new friend. her listening to me this week, the silver around all the clouds.
she and i are navigating a path toward being more than friends. but for now a friend is what i needed and a friend is what she's been and for that i am truly grateful. that said, traveling the path toward more . . the thought, the moves, those feelings made the week bearable and the prospect of beyond, brighter, no matter what.
