I think this page of my Sketchbook was heavily inspired by the hollow fatigue that lingered inside of me and popped up every now and then. Worrying about yourself is one thing; worrying about your loved ones is another. I’m so glad I turned things around for the kids and for us. Feeling powerless is probably one of the worst feelings in the world. It’s so easy to wallow in self-pity and fear of the unknown. ButI think that what I’ve accomplished , in taking the kids into a safer environment so quickly and resolutely taught them to always try to take life into your own hands and that the unknown is not to be feared.
The hollow fatigue has vanished. The way I see it, is that we’re all set now; ready to move on. And I’m all set now; ready to work!
