There are days when I feel weak and beaten down by life. Where the continued fight, day in and day out, wears on me to the point of weariness. You see, even positive people have hard times. No one is immune to life’s difficulties or to the emotional strain that comes along with them.
This week has been one of those weeks for me. A week of frustrations, battles, and struggles. A week of the unexpected. You would think I would be used to those kinds of things by now…the continual speed bumps and road blocks in life, but not even multiple sclerosis prepares you for that.
Sometimes life just is. As I say many times a day…it is what it is. I could allow everything in life from physical problems, to financial difficulties, to emotional stress wear me down to the point of collapse or I could hang on when I’m at my weakest and cling to the hope that everything is going to be okay.
When you’re in the middle of something awful, it’s hard to believe that things will work out. It’s hard to even believe that you will make it to tomorrow with the weight you are carrying and the dark clouds that are looming, but I can assure you, you are going to make it.
Think back on everything you have been through in life. Some of the difficult times seemed impossible to endure and had you sinking in despair. You have been hit with some doozies too. Things that even the bravest and strongest of warriors would collapse under.
Yet today, looking back, you see the strength you gained through the struggle. Things may not have worked out as you planned and you wouldn’t want to go through them again, but here you are…stronger, wiser and more resilient because of it.
Today may be a day of tears and pain, but trust me when I say hang on because you have an amazing future ahead. There is still a lot for you to accomplish, new people to meet, things to do and a greatness in your path. You are going to make it and come through with a strength you would have never gained any other way.
