It was cold. I was sick. The day had been long, but now I was headed home.
Life throws obstacles at you, life is not smooth.
I walked quickly, shoulders hunched, trying to turn my body into itself to shield myself from the cold. There was not much wind, but nonetheless, it hit me on every available bit of exposed skin: face, ears, hands.
No matter how fast you try to speed things up, things will come at you. Don’t let them stop you. Keep moving on, moving on. Don’t let them stop you.
I pulled my woolly scarf over and around my ears, burying my mouth into it so as not to intake the sharp Winter air.
You will need to use all your resources and depend on your closest crew to help you get by. Have them on call for a word of support, and make sure that those that surround you will only give you that. You may find you only have one, two, if you’re lucky three people like this. You’re rich already, that’s perfect.
I shoved my hands into my coat pockets trying to temporarily shield them.
You will need to dig deep to find that ‘thing’ within you: passion? belief? truth? courage? inspiration? determination? ALL OF THE ABOVE.
It’s so cold, it’s so cold… no it’s ok, it’s ok, one step closer, one step closer, each step is bringing me closer to my destination…
You will be tired, and hungry, and maybe even cold, but you must not lose sight of the bigger picture. You must not forget why you started. Why did you start? Don’t give up. Each step, each setback, each failure, is bringing you closer to where you want to go.
I get to my car, and sink into the seat with a sigh. Ahh. Finally. I’m here.
When you get to your destination, use whatever creative release to celebrate. You have made it.
You will make it.
