Eureka: My sheer determination will get me through my next sense of loss

What gives you direction in life?

Eureka! I loved that highly underrated television show. But, I am not here to talk about that quirky, goofy show. I experienced a “eureka” moment the other night. I struck gold. I had a lightbulb moment. Well, in reverse order.

I didn’t go to sleep until 2am, the other night. I got caught up in a totally depressing television show called Firefly Lane. I knew how it would end, and I still watched it and cried out loud. However, it was cathartic to do so because that night, I found something that I had thought was lost forever. Back in January, I wanted to wear a particular pair of earrings to a memorial service. Yet, I couldn’t find them anywhere. I was distraught. And, then occasionally I would try again to find them.

This other night, however, I dug deep into my core strengths of good memory, stubbornness, and sheer will. A super sense of determination. I thought through when I last saw these earrings. I looked at photos. And, then I had that lightbulb moment. And, then I struck gold. I found these earrings that had immense personal meaning to me. I had a strong sense of relief and happiness. I sat stunned for a bit. Then, I patted myself on the back because I dug deep into myself and focused myself to the point that I could see clearly and be methodical.

Then I watched a tearjeaker of a show and fell asleep happy and spent.

I will never replace those earrings again. The pain would be too much at that point. But for now, I have them back, and my sheer determination will get me through my next sense of loss.
