I have nothing witty to say, no great lesson to cast upon you, I’m just showing up. And you know what? That’s ok. Sometimes just showing up is the best we can do. Although we don’t want to burden others with our sob stories, sometimes it’s nice to know that others have these kinds of days. A kind of day where my hair feels too short, my thighs feel too big, my house feels too messy, my laundry feels too overwhelming, my job feels too scary, my kids feel too old, my friends feel too distant, my blog feels too insignificant, my heart feels too heavy, my diet feels too boring, my moods feel too manic, my smiles feel too absent, and my guilt feels too consuming because I have no “good reason” to feel all these things…I just do.
Here’s the thing. I showed up today and I’m going to show up tomorrow…and the next day and the next. Because that’s what we do. We keep showing up until our gloomy days feel sunny again. And they will. That’s the beauty and irony of life…nothing is permanent. Whatever you may be experiencing in this moment, know that this too shall pass. It will, I promise.
I posted this quote on my LimitlessLessons facebook page this morning and I love it.
See you tomorrow! Maybe even with a new blog post and a smile on my face!
