Through life we go through journeys, paths, roads, adventures….all of the above? right? sometimes it feels like this:
Some days we feel more like this:
some days it more like this:
Mud hole! Spinning wheels! need help! can the help, help or just watch? how did I get here? how can I get out?
Some days it could be like this:
it didn’t make you stuck in the mud hole but the hit sure hurt! is there permanent damage? crap! my tire is flat! delays ahead!
What about days like this!
what about this:
obviously you cant get through it…well I suppose you could but would that be the best choice? do you turn around?
For me the past couple/few years I have been down many of these roads and more! (not literally! these are all google images hehe)!
I have ran into emotional blocks like depression and anger. I have ran into physical stop signs with issues concerning the goals I am trying to accomplish such as, goal weight, internal issues, and having babies.
I have come to many closed gates… what did I do? I got out and opened them!!! how did I do that? well sometimes it felt like this:
Cold and windy, no protection, all alone… yet I made it to the gate and opened it to new adventures, a new path and a new journey!
I have been on a road of learning and education and I has been amazing! I do not and will never regret it! the things I have learned and the growth I have made has just been incredible!
I am not saying I have stopped learning or growing, nor that I will stop studying and putting forth the time and energy to learn the things that I need to! what I am saying is…. well it reminds me of stair cases like these:
You have a long set of stairs ahead of you! But with each “few” stairs there is a break! you start your journey with one step! you get to the top, you get break, a drink, a reward, an answer…etc… then begins the next steps! you still have the steps behind that have brought you here to this point… and you have completed that mission, if you will. well do you want to stay on that landing? no thanks! I’ll keep going! my goal is at the top! I’ll take that step up the next set of stairs to get me there!
The past couple of weeks (ok it may have been a month by now), I have been on the last few steps toward a landing! I took each step as it came! I looked forward to what I needed to accomplish, and I have made it to the landing!
The past few days I have “recuperated” (for lack of a better word) and I have stretched my calves, gotten a drink, and took a deep breath! and I am SO ready to begin the next set of stairs!! I am at the bottom of this set… its just the beginning! But I will make it to the top no matter the time it takes, no matter the cost (literal and figurative), no matter the pain! I am not alone! I will and can do this!
I am so grateful to my husband, my mom, my sisters, my family, my friends and acquaintances and even some strangers! For your love and support as I learn and grow through this journey!!
Take the time to live in the moment! look past the pain to the goal! When you are focused on the pain, you’re only thinking of yourself… think of those around you! think about those who look to you. and think of those you’re fighting for!
