"Time takes time."
~ American Proverb ~
It takes time to get over discouragement and disappointment. We can distract ourselves all we want, but the motivation for new energy is lacking until whatever needs to work through us has worked its way through.

The answer? Same as always. Maintain good habits, trust the process, and keep on doing the next right thing.
I allow for growth and pruning and dead branches and new life.
