Every Day is a FIGHT
Some days I feel tired of FIGHTING all the time. Anxiety is exhausting in itself. It's always the little things that tip the scale to the extreme, too. I want to be able to embrace a beautiful day, knowing that the real world beckons my attention; my children need fed; the house needs cleaned; adulting and parenting 24/7 while keeping my thoughts at bay. I scream for peace, knowing that I have to FIGHT to remain functional in this fast-paced life society keeps me in.
Writing the FIGHT series allowed me to open up about all the small things that have built up over the years. Whether it was from the veteran community, active military, family, acquaintances, or strangers. The more veterans I hear testimonials from or readers who voice their stories and experiences have really helped ground my own wandering personal memories. Of course, it's said, "not all who wander are lost", which to some degree is rather true. I'm a daydreamer, a thinker.......but whether FIGHT has followers, fans, or supporters or not doesn't change the fact that it has benefited a life or two already, or that my experiences in life weren't for nothing after all.
