“Disappointments are to the soul what the thunder-storm is to the air” ~ Friedrich von Schiller
How do you handle disappointment?
I am not sure if I can put into words how I handle it. I start out with a "sort of" embarrassed feeling. You know? The cheeks turn pink, and I sort of feel like a loser. Then I go through a sort of panic mode.. then it changes to a, "Well.. that door shut."
Today I experienced a disappointment. I don't know if it was a major disappointment, well.. come to think of it.. it can't be a major disappointment. What I had hoped would happen, was not even a blip on my radar screen 3 weeks ago. Let's just say - it did not happen.. soo.. that MUST mean something different is out there for me, right?
It's not as if this "thing" was a dream of mine.. just a path to take, that turns out.. not to be the path for me. Not by my choice, but by their choice.
Okay... time to pick up my pack and keep moving....
*insert a silent scream here*
I have to make some decisions - and fast. I have a feeling one path is about to come to an end, and I need to take a detour. Sooo many things to consider, and no safety net to catch me.
Damn - a Leap of Faith is my next chapter. Damn. I hate those chapters.
