I keep hearing the words "Just Keep Swimming" today. A friend of mine (actually a couple) told me that a couple months ago, when my daughter was newly diagnosed with Seizures.
I find that saying still rings true with me today. I am slowly coming around, trying to do more art, and to find ME again. I miss that person. But I know she is there. I find sometimes, when the going gets rough and the focus is on my family, etc, I kinda get lost. But as I have gone about my day, realizing my schedule is getting more like normal, I told myself "Just keep swimming."
