I don’t know who needs to hear this today, but just keep going. Whatever is happening around you, whatever it is that might be trying to drag you down and pull you away from what you are or what you want to be, just keep going.
Pull your head down, bring your shoulders up to your ears, stare straight ahead and walk right on through as the world blows up and crashes all around you. You can do that. You’ve done it before. You’ll make it out again this time too. Probably not without some injuries, but you will make it out alive.
I’m going through some tough times of my own right now. I’ve had to really focus hard on not reaching out to fix all the problems in this space. They aren’t my doing and they aren’t mine to fix. I just have to keep going. I’ll come out of this just fine on the other side. Better even, because I will know exactly what the start of this situation looks like now. It looks like me, being willing to solve the worlds problems without first solving my own.
That ended today. Today, I smiled even though every part of me hurts. I picked my head up and looked straight ahead, ignoring all of the destruction around me. I clenched my fists and began not just walking, but stomping toward my goals that lie just on the other side of this. My chest is out and I’m ready to fight anything that steps in my way.
You can do this too! I believe in you! Just keep going. I’ll see you on the other side.
