Sometimes the World Slides

Sometimes the world slides and things get topsy-turvy.

And you find yourself standing on the sidelines watching people you love are go through hard things that you have no control over. You can't stop it. You can't fix it. You can only stand there with arms around them, holding tight till the world stops shifting.

Sometimes we'd rather have things in neat little packages tied up with telephone cords (quirky but predictable). We're not big on surprises. We like to know what's coming. But sometimes you can't. And it sucks.

Sometimes you need a diversion like the Lizzie Bennet Diaries to remind you that life can be fun.

  1. I can identify with this so much being a mum there always seem to be something I'm worrying about with one of my children! I haven't read this book and I love that quote. I shall look it up! I hope your troubles are over soon Catherine. :) xx

    1. Oh you should definitely read the book, Jess! Or watch the series, either way. :)

  2. Yes, it does slide, doesn't it? I feel the same these days. I hope it passes. I hope we take some comfort in not-knowing other things, and knowing when the time is right.
