It's time for some Real Talk..
Today I started to feel like I was losing steam...like my sprint to survive had finally taken its toll on me. I felt sad, frustrated, disappointed, and unmotivated. I felt all of the things you feel when you're down. It was just one of those days where I could not shake the feeling.
Today, I felt as though I couldn’t possibly take one more punch in what seems like a million round fight.
My mission in life is to be positive—and to help influence others to be positive, determined, and empowered. How could I possibly reveal to the world that not all is “right” at the moment? In the words of a dear friend—My spirit was tired.
The truth is, much is going very, very wrong for many, many people. I am not alone. I know that there is power in honesty.
There is community in sharing. There is strength in asking for help.
I needed a lot of help today. I needed support. I needed answers. I needed encouragement, listening ears, and logical thinking. I needed a team of people to remind me who I am, and to get my head on straight.
And...I’ll be ok. Today is one of the hard days out of the thousands of good ones. I will (we will) get thru these troubling times. The future will not look like the past—I guarantee it—that’s what is meant to be. In fact, it will be even better.
See, I’m already improving!
I am thankful that I have the courage to reach out and seek out the advice mentors, friends and family. We should all remember that we aren’t alone—ever—even when it feels that way.
I am extra thankful for the STUBBORN HEART that I have inside of me that is unwilling to give up. This heart knows that tomorrow is a new day and I will awaken with stronger armor and even more skills.
Bring it on...
