Micro Monday*

Last January I was given a gift. And here I am this January submitting the twenty-third of 31 (well, 32--there was a bonus)prompts. I was well beyond January 2014 when I thought I was ready to tackle prompt number twenty-three. I was wrong many times over. 

And while it was (IS) acceptable to skip over, to move on, I couldn't. And even as I have not completed the assignment I still feel stuck or maybe conflicted. 

Trust, that which has been placed in others, has proven quite the jagged journey leaving me ragged rather than rugged--some days. 


  1. Oh hon, you and me both. The trust thing has taken a beating for me in the last couple of years. I'm not sure what to do with that, to tell you the truth.

  2. It's one of the hardest. Definitely. I struggle with it always. That, and openness. You know, those things that smack of Vulnerability. Ugh.

    It's your journey, D. No path you consciously take is wrong. And, friend, we are too old for assignments. Suggestions -- that's a different matter.

    1. Thanks for the wise words e.

      Assignments are okay. It is deadlines that blow. :-)

  3. It's hard to trust a second time when you've been let down a first time, and now multiply that number by a life and it's clear why trust is so important. Hug.

  4. Ugh, Trust. That one is a sticky wicket, I agree. It just takes once to get burned and then you are twice shy.


Hi! Your visit is much appreciated.
