Charlie, the main character in The Perks of Being a Wallflower, once said, “so this is my life. and I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.”
the grieving process is difficult and it’s different for each person. some days are much easier than others and some are just plain miserable.
and here we are – August 6, 2013. I’ve missed Michigan the most today and this same day last summer. I miss Grand Rapids and my family and my high school/college communities and my wonderful group of friends and I miss Joel.
it’s hard to know what the “right” feelings are today. I miss my best friend like crazy, but I also love my job, my crazy coworkers, my wonderful roommate, and everyone/everything else that make living in Cincinnati so beautiful.
so, like Charlie, today I’m both happy and sad and I’m still trying to figure out how that could be.
