The more I live, the more I realize that rarely is life solely celebratory or solely sad, and sometimes finding a balance in those things is the hardest thing to do. I’m really excited about a lot of things in the near future (i.e. going camping with friends, Derek’s parents visiting from Michigan, and taking a trip to Spain for work), but there are some underlying currents of sadness in other areas, as well. I’m thrown from one extreme of happily reading up on various ways to make the most of Madrid in a few weeks to almost crying over the health of someone close to me. Sometimes the most therapeutic thing to do is to acknowledge that these conflicting emotions are normal and then try to move on.
For today, that is basically all.
