Huge Left Turn

Today is the first day of the rest of my life and I am in the middle of a huge left turn. Once I get completely through the turn, everything should be quite alright. There seems to be oil on the road and my wheels are spinning a bit, but I will get around this corner. I spent the entire day yesterday laying on the couch. I did not eat anything except a few spoonfulls of peanut butter. My friend, Janet, says that is what Sundays are for. I seem to lack the motivation again today as well. I miss my friend, but I have to move on. This is gonna be like quitting any addiction. I am going to just have to get past this withdrawl period and resist the urge to fall back. I did not expect this to be so hard. I hear the words of Robert Plant playing in my head “I can’t quit you babe, so I think I’ll put you down for a while”. The images in my mind are full of all the smiles and laughter of the recent past. But now I have to just move on.
