Good morning beautiful humans, happy Friday, we made it! Thank you for spending part of your morning with me. Welcome to Life with Lane.
Life can come at us fast like a hard ball and if we don’t have our bats ready; it will knock us down. Being knocked down is okay, it’s a part of life. The key is to not stay there.
As most of you know this has been a sad and heartbreaking week for me. Each day has been a struggle to get by. It made me think a mask we wear as humans. Putting on a happy face when we’re sad; trying to make people think we’re ok. Getting dressed up and trying to function when we’re sick. Slapping on a fake smile at work where we’re dying inside because we want to make others and sometimes ourselves believe we are good.
We have to understand that it’s ok to not be ok. Sometimes verbalizing it makes you feel better. Bottling things up inside isn’t good for the soul.
I didn’t want to write about losing my dog for the fourth day in a row but he just passed away on Monday. On my way to Walmart I started crying yesterday when I heard that Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth song on the radio. I miss my dog and I am heartbroken. I am ok with saying that.
However, I have to be strong for Onyx. The thing is, I don’t have to wear a mask with him. We are in the same boat. I see the sadness, hurt, and confusion on his little handsome face. He sees the sadness and hurt in mine.
We all were mask but sometimes we have to take it off and let our true faces show. Underneath it all,we are all human. Even if you don’t think people will like what they see. At least you’ll know it was the real you. Mask off!
Thank for reading my blog. I hope you enjoyed it. Have a wonderful blessed day.
How often do you wear a mask?
