Grateful at the end of a very hard week to @newyorkbullycrew for putting these emotions into words... #mondaymotivation .
On a daily basis your faith will be tested.
You’ll question humanity.
Your heart will be wounded. Your soul will be altered.
On a weekly basis you’ll question yourself.
You’ll question your strength.
You’ll question the world.
On a monthly basis you’ll fall down.
You’ll get up.
You’ll go on.
On a yearly basis you’ll look back.
You’ll see faces.
You couldn’t save them.
You’ll learn to mourn.
You’ll learn to trust a little less.
To do a little more.
To fight a little harder.
You’ll learn to hope.
You’ll learn to fail.
You’ll learn when to hold on.
When to give up.
When not to give up.
You’ll learn who you are.
What you stand for.
You may even sometimes question what you’re doing.
But here’s the good news. When you question, all you have to do is take a look around…
And you’ll see them.
You’ll see their faces.
You’ll see their smiles.
You’ll feel their love.
In their eyes, you’ll see their journeys.
You’ll remember their new beginnings.
You’ll know how far they’ve come.
You’ll remember when they didn’t know you or trust you.
When they’d given up. You’ll remember how you helped them heal. How you loved them. How they loved you, too. And as you look back you’ll want to move forward.
For them and because of them.
In your darkest hours, you’ll look around to find the lives saved because you existed. In those moments, when you look into their eyes, every doubt will be erased.
Every question will be answered.
Every bit of pain was worth it.
For this moment.
