Still Standing (I Think)

Still Standing (I Think)
I know we shouldn’t live our lives in the past. And I know nobody can predict or completely plan for what the future holds, so worrying too much about that is pretty senseless. (And I fully realize that both of those notions are easier said that done.) So then that leaves us the present. The here. The now. But what happens when the now just hurts like hell? What happens when things feel fractured and disconnected and the warmth that usually radiates through your heart strings is barely flickering?
You hope….and you pray.
And you find a way to believe that this darkness will fade to light as it always has in the past. You find a way to realize that you are still standing and whatever is taking shots at you must also be getting worn out by your perseverance, strength, and resistance. You find a way to grab hold of meaningful moments, even if they are brief and fleeting. A perfect cool breeze. The laughter of a child. The trusting gaze of the dog. The sounds of birds against the backdrop of a perfect spring day. All signs of life and all signs that love can be self renewing and hope can be perpetual.
It has been a very rough several months and there are more hurdles to clear but in spite of everything, I’m still standing. They say time heals. They say that which doesn’t kill you, makes your stronger. They say a lot of things.  Sometimes in the throws of adversity when all you want to do is kick, scream, cry, or ask the heavens “NOW what?” you fail to realize that you really are getting stronger. You fail to realize that with a little strength, today hurts a little less than yesterday did.
With a little time we will find healing. With a little belief we will find solutions. With a little hope, we will live the new normal and it will be a great normal, full of life, love, happiness, and plenty of tomorrows.
Have hope and have faith for a better tomorrow. And when the suns rises on that tomorrow, extend a hand to someone who may not have found theirs yet.
Peace and love to you all.
