Human Yo-Yo

It's funny how your personal impressions of your life can switch so quickly and so easily from lofty optimistism to the depths of despair. Sometimes it feels like your head is in the clouds and you're walking with down-stuffed pillows on the balls of your feet and sometimes it feels like you should be crawling through the earth, pulling yourself slowly upwards with the tips of your fingers. And the seemingly inconsequential actions of others, sometimes complete strangers, can make all the difference in which direction you're going and how you feel about your place in the world and in the hearts of those around you.

It's been a rollercoaster ride for over a year now. I am the human yo-yo.

Reflecting back on 25, it's been one of the strangest years yet, full of so many highs and so many lows that's it's difficult to sort everything out.

But this past weekend was a good weekend. A very good weekend. One of the best in recent memory.

I'll tell you all about it tomorrow...
