Well I’ve officially discovered glue can’t fix all problems. The cracks in my previous post turned into the Grand Canyon. It was extremely difficult to come to terms with in the beginning, but I just have to keep telling myself this is for the best. Isn’t there a great quote that goes something like “sometimes things fall apart so better things can fall together”? I’m just trying to find the silver lining in my situation. I’m surrounded by amazing people that I love and adore. I’m so grateful for the life I have. Sometimes it’s stressful, and crazy, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Today was an absolutely wonderful day, it was warm, and I got to spend time with some amazing people. In person, on the phone, and through the wonderful world of Skype. Honestly, I dont know what I would do without my incredible friends. They truely keep me going. This has seriously been the longest week ever. I never thought it would end. It definitely has had its ups and downs. And by ups and downs I mean Mt. Everest, and Ground Zero. But that’s life, isn’t it? If everything was static, life wouldn’t really be worth living.
The highs and the lows help us learn how to navigate this crazy thing called life. Without lows, we wouldn’t be able to fully appreciate our highs. I truly believe that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. So in a weird way, I’m thankful for the hardships I’ve had to endure in my life, and the ones that have yet to happen. They’ve shaped me into the person I am today; I’m finally starting to love myself. It’s hell going through all the challenges we face on a daily basis, but we’ve always got to remember to be strong, sit it out, and we’ll survive. Hell isn’t eternal, at least not in this sense. If we believe in ourselves, and look for a little help from our friends, we can overcome anything.
So my question to you: What have you overcome? How did you do it? How did it impact your life?
