Just Breathe by Eddie Vedder

Yes, I understand that every life must end, uh-huh
As we sit alone, I know someday we must go, uh-huh
Oh I’m a lucky man, to count on both hands the ones I love
Some folks just have one, yeah, others, they’ve got noneStay with me…
Let’s just breathe…

Practiced all my sins, never gonna let me win, uh-huh
Under everything, just another human being, uh-huh
I don’t wanna hurt, there’s so much in this world to make me bleed

Stay with me
You’re all I see…

Did I say that I need you?
Did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me

As I come clean…
I wonder everyday, as I look upon your face, uh-huh
Everything you gave
And nothing you would save, oh no

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave…

Did I say that I need you?
Oh, did I say that I want you?
Oh, if I didn’t I’m a fool you see
No one knows this more than me
And I come clean, ah…

Nothing you would take
Everything you gave
Hold me til I die
Meet you on the other side…

This week I am working with my grief, with the added element of PMS!  I will try to keep this short and sweet.  For the women reading, who also find this a challenge – you will understand what I am talking about.  When I am in a PMS state on a good day, everything is intense and emotional.   The grief, while in that state has felt beyond me and full of panic at times.  The grief has felt as though it was going to take me over at times.  What has helped me this week is the word – ALLOW.  With grief, that comes with this much love underneath – it is going to be intense, and you have to do what you can to allow it to unfold.  It is too much to even try to resist, at times.  Music really helps me to connect to the feelings beyond reason.  This song above has helped me through many hard challenges while my dad was sick, and almost daily at the end.  I hope you enjoy it.  I want to also THANK YOU so much for following and reading these posts.  I am grateful, and humbled.

Til Next week,

Jodi
