I'm torn, confused about my future with a man I love. Here I sit, talking to myself. Can you help?
"Dear self. Be happy. This is just a fancy way of saying..."
"What do I want to do with the days I have left?"
"Envision life is supporting your happiness".
"Support for my happiness?"
"You have a little say in this, you know."
"Look, I'm happy if the sky isn't falling in. "
"Widowhood happens. You actually have it a lot better than most widows. You got to say good bye."
"Look in the mirror."

"Wow. This post sure is a downer."
"Will life bring me happiness?
"Do you need it to?"
"More than ever."
"Dare to be an optimist."
"But I had this experience."
"....The sky is not falling?"
"I'm sure I can find a fox who agrees it is."
"And when the does sky fall in?"
"Add another acorn to your collection."
"Look , wise guy. If an acorn falls far and fast enough it can kill you. That's what losing a spouse is like."
"Yes. It killed part of me."
"Then don't sit under an acorn tree."
