Most days, I am excited about what I do and the things the agency I work for accomplishes. Most days, I'm more than willing to talk about the work we do and how others can help. Most days, I'm happy to research new events and ways to give back for us to explore.

But every once in a while, it all catches up to me and I'm down right exhausted. This is when you don't hear from me for a while.

Because at the end of a long day of hearing about others problems, I can't possibly think of more problems in the world and how to solve them. And I don't mean there is too much snow and I hate driving in this weather type problems. I mean the father of my child hits me every chance he can and I'm hiding in a shelter because I'm literally afraid for my life type problems.

Some days, I spend all my time running around like a crazy person trying to keep up, and trying to not really process anything that I hear. Because some days, if I really process it, I can't help but cry.

So yes, some days, I have no energy left to move from the couch at the end of a long day, let alone write a post about how to make it all better or how other agencies are changing the world. But I said I would come back and write so here I am. Hopefully you can all bear with me through my absences and still take something from all of my rambling. I'll be better next time, I swear.

Be the change. Make the difference.
