A Long Night
“Every man has his secret sorrows which the world knows not; and often times we call a man cold when he is only sad.”
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I’m feeling alone tonight, for many reasons, and I guess it’s led me back to writing, something I’ve had much too little time for lately. Lately I’ve been forgetting to take the time to be creative, to write, and to really stop and think about things. My blog has become kind of comatose. It was nice to log back on and see that I’ve been given the Inner Peace Award, which is a nice, feel-good, inspiring award. I pass it on to all my followers, but I’ll highlight a few of my favorite inspiring blogs later in this post. Tonight inner peace is something I can really appreciate.
Every now and then, and especially at night for some reason, hope seems to wane away and our thoughts turn to all the friends we’ve lost, all the relationships we’ve botched and all the weaknesses, shortcomings and fears we have. And they all seem much worse than they really are, and the night is particularly dark and heavy and feels like it’ll never end. And you need to talk to someone, but there aren’t very many people who want to discuss this stuff at 2 a.m. This is kind of where I am tonight, but I guess it’s mostly only bad feelings that will pass in a few hours. Then the sun will come up on another day and another chance to do things right.
A big thank you to Nadyess for the Inner Peace Award.
Here are some blogs that are really inspiring. There are so many I love, it was hard to pick a few out. 🙂
