A hole is to dig

I thought I wasn’t going to post much in words tonight, but it turns out I have a lot of things bubbling over and they’re just going to spill out right here.

Sometimes you’re wide open and embracing the world, full of love and hope, everything is colored with promise, and cheesy music plays in the background of your life (possibly “The Hills are Alive” but I can’t confirm that).

Other times, once in awhile (sudden shift in mood music), the world is crowding in on your personal space and you dig yourself a hole and hide in it.

That’s ok. Dig it as deep as you need.
You can even cover the top. You be all comfy in your little hole until you feel like coming back out into the world. I give you permission.
Ok? That’s right.
Need some blankets? Here.
Something warm to drink? Here, whipped this up just for you.
Take your time. You don’t *have* to do anything you’re not ready to do. You are in control of you. If you need this break, you take it. As soon as you feel less pressured, you are more likely to make a good decision anyway.

And this, because it’s amazing. And what I might listen to if I were deep in thought and being reclusive down in a hole.
