I Appreciate the Simple Things In Life

My heart has been in a strange place lately...it's as though, while it has been beating, it has lost the rhythm of the song that moves it. There will be small tunes that make it skip or quiver, but the true heart song just hasn't been playing. It's been this way for a while...almost three years actually...it will be three years on November 1st.

But today, I heard a bit of that familiar song. My current boss introduced me to someone familiar with my past employer and mentor. When he introduced me he described me as being part of the backbone of that agency and the right hand of my mentor. The person's eyes lit up and he said, "THAT'S where I know your name!"

I guess it seems prideful to want to know I am remembered and validated for who I once was...for having a role in something wonderful and respected. My place now is very different from where I was and I sometimes feel as though I will never hear the same song in my heart again...that song that sings of value, purpose, the song that celebrates my being a part of something bigger than just myself.

So today I felt a few chords of that old song. And it made me smile.
Liked this .. and very glad for you. Know what it is like to feel out of sorts for long stretches .. kinda drains you of you. Enjoy your day.
