🌦. Today has been a lot better than yesterday but my head is trying to kill me tonight.
🌤I'm dragging myself through it and reminding myself that tomorrow is a new day.
And although the idea of a fresh start and change is
absolutely, utterly, terrifyingly, freak out inducingly scary...
⛵️It's just like a journey to another country only you're travelling to another island in your life.
🏝An island of safety and security
But also an island of challenge.
😌Just the right amount of challenge. Comfortable bite sized chunks you can manage.
💪The pieces with get progressively bigger as you grow stronger,
🌻And when you've absorbed the positive energy, and you learn to use it correctly when needed, you can get back on the boat and sail further away.
🏝Further away into the distance to find another place to play.
And you'll continue to grow in this way until you stop.
👵🏻And when you're old and slowly down you'll look back on all the islands you been to.
🎖All the lessons you've learned.
👫All the people who've inspired you.
👫All the people you've helped.
And you'll look back at the place we're it all began - The island of illness and fear, that promised comfort and routine but never gave.
You'll look back, and oh how you'll be so glad that you got in your boat.
Made that first voyage into the uncertain.
And began to LIVE x
