An Open Letter Of Rambling

Dear Someone,

Sometimes you just want to run away.
What are you running from? 
Stress?  Family?  Work? 
Does running make you feel better? 
Does it make the problems go away?
Doesn't it just create a whole new set of problems to go with the ones you already had? 

We all have bad days to go with the good ones.  We all have bad situations that arise to go with the good situations.  We all have periods of time in our lives we would prefer to not have to deal with, and that go along with the periods of time we wish would never end.  This is life.  This is how it is.  Good or bad, it is just how things happen and go sometimes.  But you know what?  This too will pass.  Things will work out. 

Sometimes you have to stop, step back, and look at the big picture.  Are things really that bad?  I can can promise you they can always be worse.  You just have to find your own way to deal with the problems, get them behind you, and get on with the important and enjoyable parts of life.  In the process, don't ever forget what is most important to you.  Don't ever forget those people that are most important to you.  Don't ever beat down those around you just because they happen to be close by.  Don't ever take your frustrations out on those you love, just because you can.  That never settles or fixes anything. 

When it comes to relationships and TTWD, there are always obstacles.  There is always "life" getting in the way.  You may not feel Domly.  You may not feel submissive.  You may hate how you can't see that person that is most important to you.  There may be too much distance.  Schedules may make life hectic.  But no matter what, don't forget what got you here.  Don't forget what there is between you and the one you love the most.  Don't forget the feelings and emotions that have brought you this far.  Just because things aren't "perfect" right now, doesn't mean it's an omen for everything to come. 

You must have faith.  You must be strong.  You must not lose hope.  You must keep your eye on the future and the possibilities.  Without that there is nothing.  Without hope, and dreams, and a goal, there is no point.  Without that special relationship, we wander alone and aimlessly.  Don't let the bad times sour everything that is good.  The good far outweighs the bad...it just doesn't seem like it sometimes.  Don't lose sight of what you know you want and need.  All the good is worth whatever bad must be faced.  If it's not, then you are better off cutting your losses now, and moving on to where the good is worth all the extra effort. 

With Love,


(Sorry to ramble and be so cryptic.  I just needed to vent, get some things out, and get them off my chest.  I know you all are thinking DV has totally lost it and gone off the deep end.  I promise you I'm as sane as ever.  You may now return to your regularly scheduled program.)


  1. I think this is a good reminder.

    When days are dark, it is easy to assume they have always been dark and they will always be dark. But in truth, things will get better. Life is a cycle of seasons and we must all go through them all. This is also true of our relationships.

  2. Wise advice for Someone, and everyone really.

  3. DV,
    This week I have been struggling with some things and your words of wisdom wear darn near the most perfect words I hav heard that made me feel like I will make it through the stuff in my life.

    Thank you so much, you truly brought me to tears, but happy ones of course! I love your blog so much and I am new to it and am still playing catch up but you have a gift to share with the world through your writing!

  4. Thank you all for your nice comments. It's nice to know that my rambling can touch you and remind you of what's important. Maybe it should scare me that you all connect with this. LOL! Nonetheless, it doesn't, so thanks!


  5. Wise words as always ... truly enjoy following your blog ... not sentiments that I personally need to hear at the moment but there have been times ... you are a treasure.
