Life is not a straight line. It's a downpour of gifts, please – hold out your hand

Thank you for being here. I'm so glad you're here.

Dear 2010,

Okay, listen.  I've about had it with this tangle of shit you've been so freely throwing at me these days.  Seriously, i have. 

Do you remember back, just last month, when i chose my word for the year?  Well, it just so happened that that word was EASE.  Remember?  Not TEASE, or DISease.  Not let's-see-how-difficult-we-can-make-it for her, or let's-play-dirty-sneaky-little-tricks on her (ha ha ha). 

But, EASE.  As in calm and flowing and effortless. 

Seriously, i know, there is much to be learned from struggle and opposition, suffering and contrasts and all that other bullshit, but COME ON!  I swear, i can see the gifts, really---i'm doing my best to GET THIS stuff you keep slamming in my face. 

But slow down.  i'm tired now and i just want to rest.  Can you allow for that?  Pretty Plllleeeeaase.  with sugar on top.  I'll even throw a cherry up there and some whip cream if you want.

And one more thing, do you mind if we start today?

Thank you for your consideration,

Julia M.
