Its all too much!

WTF? I must have been really horrible in my past life! I got an email from my thesis supervisor the other day... he is retiring.... IN  6 WEEKS! this is the guy that I have relied on for the last 4 years to help me get through my PhD, the same person who told me he would NOT retire till the end of the year and would help see me through to the end...
In the last 4 years I have had my father in law pass away, my brother in law in Jail for helping that stupid canadian woman rescue her kids, both my supervisors go out on leave becuse they got cancer, at the same time! and while one came back from it (the same one who is leaving now) the other, who also happened to be one of my best friends and mentor, passed away... then all the stuff with IF- treatments, surgery, IVF, got pregnant only to loose my darling baby. And now just when I am picking my self up of the floor... right when I thought I could once again begin to look toward  getting on with some semblance of a life... my supervisor dumps me in the gutter- to try and pick up the pieces again- just 6 months off the end!
its all too much!

When visiting with my sister Jo-Anne recently she shared a passage from a favourite book that talked about the importance of gently moving through in between times; those periods following a difficult situation when the sting of the event has eased but you are not yet to that place where you are filled with joy. Another way to look at this is being willing to sit with the discomfort, to feel unease and be okay with that. As Iyanla Vanzant reminds us, there is value in being in the valley for this is a time to rest, to heal and to rejuvenate. And when you are ready, look upward and be reminded of all those time you pulled yourself through those in between times and sat once again atop your mountain with the knowledge that you always make each climb and at the end of the day you are stronger and wiser for having embraced the journey.
