The Equalizer

I thought the pain was unbearable. I could not think clearly. My mind was scrambled. I could not breathe. The tears were flowing from my eyes. I wanted to give up. I wanted to throw in the towel. It started with a broken heart. Then it extended to physical pain. A migraine. Anxiety. Back pains. Chest pains.

This emotional and physical pain transferred into anger. I wanted the pain to end. I wanted to take back everything that was taken from me. I wanted revenge. I wanted the perpetrator to pay.

Then it happened. The thoughts went away. The pain became bearable.


How we handle the pain we experience is up to us. A line from the movie "There are two kinds of pain in this world, pain that hurts and pain that alters."

A Small Tear

I could barely see.  My eyes felt itchy and irritated.  I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee.  I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me.  I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point.  When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses.  If only I would have recognized the signs sooner.... The left lens had a tear.  Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge i
