Cheri Speak

Are you listening?

Lifting Weights…Off My Shoulders

For some time I have had an enormous weight on my shoulders. There hasn’t really seemed to be a way to relieve the pressure. I’ve definitely been in a damned if I do, damned if I don’t kind of existence for several months. I didn’t realize I had been holding my breath until just now.

This small reprieve may be fleeting or, it could be final. Everything is still settling down and I can’t help but wonder, yet I have no choice, but to wait. I don’t mind. For now, there’s a lil fresh air for Cheri to breath. At least for a second. Phew!

On that note…I’m sure I’m not the only one who has had monumental life happenings that are mentally time stamped – by default, by the pop culture of the moment…Right? 50 Shades of Grey. Gees Louise, I haven’t even read the damned book and yet, for so many reasons, I will never forget it! What a ridiculous sort of impact.

Trust me, I am shaking my head in real disbelief right now. This new found oxygen by the way, has helped me form a smile, and no, the whole BDSM thing is not MY thing, so wipe that silly smile right off YOUR face.

Tonight, I give you my stress, my worry, and even some of my relief. Just for a few hours.

I’d do the same for you. I promise.

Now it's my turn to listen...
