Monday, the 12th

Today is Monday, the 12th, and I spent my early morning sitting on the beach. Like I have mentioned before, I have been struggling with breathing. I have been trying to decompress and live in the moment, so this morning I pushed myself. I woke up after restless sleep and decided to love myself a little tighter, a little warmer, and so I walked.

As I walked, I thought about it all. Like fireworks, each thought lit up my mind with possible scenarios and outcomes that are all ultimately out of my hands, but I know that subconsciously I’ll still try to control.

Even when I try, it all just means I have to try harder for myself.

Distracted by the fireworks, I marveled over how I mysteriously made it to the beach in one piece.


Today is Monday, and I hope we allow ourselves to be uncomfortable this week. I hope we let ourselves be put in situations that terrify us, but empower us. Sometimes in order to grow, we need to be pushed into the deep end. It is easier said than done, but it is possible. I have faith in all of us.
