All of this said and done, I don't sit around and cry about what was, or what could have been, or what will be, for that matter. Today though, as I'm watching old episodes of NCIS and relive the death of Director Vance's wife, coupled with the death of Ziva's father, ELI, it brought on a crying spell, that I can only assume that I needed. I cry for my own reasons. Private reasons, reasons that you will never know.
But, I shake myself off, throw cold water on my face and prepare to move forward, again. Watching NCIS makes me think of "The Rules"... and a couple of my favorites are:
Rule 36: If you feel like you are being played, you probably are
Rule 11: When the job is done, walk away.
These are my favorites, even if I often want to ignore them...
There are others, of course, that if you read the link, you can relate to.
My tears are dried. I'm ready to propel myself forward again.
All is well, until later.
