inspiration from down low

carry on
I know sometimes it feels like I’m the poster child for positivity. It’s how I live my life – which I realize sounds incredibly annoying sometimes, but it’s the truth. I just don’t get down very often. I see problems not as problems, but as challenges. I open myself to them; I welcome them.

But … there are times that I feel weak. I am a human being. There are times that I am afraid. That I question myself.

I had a great conversation with a friend last night that really caused me to think. To push myself. Am I doing the right things? Am I on the right road? Could I be doing something better? And in the strangest way, feeling low … or confused … unsure …. scared … now has me feeling high.

Today, I grew.

These are very real moments. This is life. And we wouldn’t have the high points – we wouldn’t be capable of ever feeling truly happy – if we didn’t feel low once in a while.

So the next time you’re having a moment … if you’re feeling low … carry on. Let it soak in for a minute; let yourself grow. It’s all part of this thing we call life.

And a beautiful thing it is.
