Candy strings and trampolines

Image
I've been in Sydney the past two weeks. Fletch and I went back for a last minute visit, to feel not so far away from the shit that's been going on. It was good. Good to be there. To be close. But after a few days, I felt far away....again. Because shit started going down back in Hong Kong. Dear friends, who don't deserve any sort of shit, had to deal with things beyond my comprehension. Shit that hurt. Lies that hurt. Stuff that unexpectedly changed the course of their lives. Meanwhile, more shit was still happening in Sydney. Recovery, cancer. That young guy who died in Thredbo last week was an old friend of my brothers. Heartache, loss, rebuilding. Hurt and pain for so many. 

You know when you're little you think the world, life, is candy on strings around your wrists, finding a shell in the sand, somersaults on trampolines. Bad stuff only happened in the news in places far away with names you couldn't pronounce. It was forgotten about as quickly as it was heard. 

I want back to that. Because this 'grown up' business where people get hurt, feelings are shattered,  people are sick, and die... I'm not up for it. It's shit and what scares me is, this is life

Bring back the candy and trampolines.

Being an adult is the bloody pits sometimes.
I'm so sorry there is so much crap going on around you at the moment.
It can be such a challenge to remain positive and find silver linings day after day.
Absolutely - bring back cartwheels into the pool and riding bikes into the evening without a care in the world.

Oh darling girl, I SO SO know what you mean. It does suck being a grown up sometimes, like REALLY sucky.
It sounds like you've been a bit torn, being in the middle of it all too... I can't imagine how difficult it has been for you to have two places with crap going down.
I have been rocked a bit this year by various happenings. It has made me quite uneasy actually. That feeling when you start to think maybe it's your time to suffer a little. Sounds a bit weird, but multiple things start to happen to lots of people you care about, it's easier to question everything you've always known or believed.
I am so sorry about your brother's friend, I heard that story on the news and it made me feel very sad.
Big hugs to you Bridget, hope it all starts to get a bit brighter soon xoxo

I'm sorry things are hard for you right now. I hope they go back to fun and easy soon.

Oh hun, I hope you are ok.

I don't have any words that will help, but hope that some good will come your way soon.
