Some of you may wonder where I've been in the last few months. Others probably don't know me well enough to have noticed I was gone to begin with. To both, however, the message is the same: I am still here.
Despite an emotionally draining few months that has seen me detach a lot of junk from my life, centering myself as my carefully crafted life came tumbling down, gaining antibodies to H1N1 the hard way, two attempts on my life and criminal damage done to my visible computer systems,..
... I'm still here.
Everything that I could possibly lose, I have lost. But where this would have me drowning in sorrow and self pity before, now I simply feel it's left me stronger and better focused. And despite feeling, at times, like it was the end of the world, I can't help but notice every single day, that I'm still here.
Best feeling in the world.
