Life has a way of telling us when to hold on & fight, when to let go, when to stand by someone or something no matter what.
Life is so full of ups & downs. Sometimes you’re passing through a storm & you know exactly why. Sometimes you’re passing through a storm but you don’t know why till the storm is gone & things begin to make sense.
If the turbulence of the storm that’s passing is enough to stop you from chasing what you want, I think it shows you didn’t really want it.
But sometimes someone or something means too much for any storm to change your path.
We get stronger with every storm we pass through & we learn what matters most. The thing is, we evolve, sometimes a goal or a person that was a priority slips. It’s not everything anymore because your heart & soul are pulling you somewhere else.
Following your heart can be a dangerous thing to do. The risk is high, but so is the reward.
I’ve passed through my share of storms this year. Things that used to be a priority just aren’t anymore. That’s the reality of growing through life. Sometimes you don’t know how long the storm will last & don’t know if or how you’ll survive it — you just know that you can’t give up, you just know you couldn’t live with yourself unless you’ve fought at all costs for what you want.
A strong heart & a steady mind can overcome anything. If it truly matters to you, there’s no question of whether you stick out the fight & if you’re questioning whether the fight is worth it, I think your heart has already decided it’s not.
If you’re passing through a storm I won’t tell you to hold on but to look inside yourself for what is right for you in that moment — listen to your gut, listen to your mind, listen to your heart. 🖤
