There are days when you begin to suspect that this is the beginning of the apocalypse.
Days when it feels like the roads are all closed.
Days when you’ve been fighting your hardest to keep up with the whackness.
Days when enough things have happened and now all you can hear are the small fries in your head telling you to just lay down in the street and let the zombies take you already.
Whatever you’ve been going through has been too much.
It’s enough already.
But don’t give up. Please don’t.
You can do this. You are courageous.
It takes courage to put yourself out there, showing up day after day in the way that you do, fighting the good fight.
Courage to brush off the dirt after a knock-down and get back in there.
Courage to honor your boundaries and speak to what needs speaking to.
Courage to not take things personally. Even when the crap is hot and it’s being flinged in your direction. Even when there is no convincing the flinger to stop.
It takes courage and resilience to stand strong in your knowing, and trust your own path.
Even when everyone is headed the other way.
Even when you’re criticized for being a weirdo.
You are courageous.
And that’s a good thing.
It takes courage to address the things that are hard and scary to address. Courage when it just seems easier to smile real big and slap a spiritual bumper-sticker on the thing.
Courage to look at what this situation is offering you for your own growth. To really look.
Courage to let yourself out of the toxic cycle of resentment and do what needs to be done.
Courage to remember that life is short and all you really have is your time to spend. And then choose to spend your time courageously. Again and again.
And you know what else it takes? A bigger boat and some bigger balls.
All this stuff happening is most likely a sign that you are leveling up and it’s time to step things up.
It takes courage to ask, how is this happening for me? and then do what needs to be done.
But then again, this is you we’re talking about…and we both know what a little Ass Kicker of Light you are.
So just in-case the apocalypse really is happening today, I will say this: The Zombies cannot have us yet.
Let’s face it, we are just too legit to quit.
Yes some crazy things are happening. You’re leveling up and maybe these are growing pains. Good thing you are courageous. And a little Ass-Kicker of Light.
Keep the perspective that all is well. Because, really it is.
