I won’t lie; it’s been a difficult week for many reasons.

I have had a difficult time finding the light at the end of the tunnel. I’ve been sad; I’ve been mad, really mad. I’ve been struggling with idea that there is bad in this world. As my always-realistic, forward-thinking best friend reminded me; however, is that in times of struggle you must think positively, you must pray positively. Even if you don’t want to.

There are going to be moments that make your life seem all too real. You come down off of the Cloud 9 that is your typical life and you are suddenly grounded. There’s a pit in your stomach and all of your senses are heightened. You feel more tangible than ever, in a world that you normally would walk through without worry.

Those are the moments that keep you grounded, that help you to realize what is really necessary to focus your time and energy on. And while it sucks, and it usually takes something that upsets the bubble that is your life to come to that realization, we have to keep going. We have to keep living our lives as if we aren’t in pain or struggling with personal demons.

Why hold yourself in a strong manner when all you want to do is break down? Because you have to for those that cannot be as strong as you. You are always stronger than you think.

I had a hard time writing this because I’m struggling with this myself. But, everyone who follows my little blog world deserves to know how I’m feeling. The good, and the bad.

It’s been a difficult week. There will be plenty of those to come. It’s okay to be realistic, it’s okay to be hurting, but power through. Every moment counts.


This one’s for M.A.
