“She stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her way she adjusted her sails.”
Sometimes I feel like I’m losing hope. I’m a positive person, I’m upbeat by nature, but I have often felt like as soon as I’ve started to understand or get used to the enormous trials life has thrown my way, there is something bigger and badder knocking at my door. I’m feeling exhausted and so incredibly done with this. And when all along I thought the sacrifices I’ve made and the hardships I’ve endured would be wildly worth it one day, it’s hard to not question if they ever really will. I’ve never worried about losing hope, it’s just never crossed my mind to think that better times aren’t going to come. So tonight, when it seems impossible to get through this…with the hurt feelings and the overwhelming burdens and the loss of friendships, I needed a gust of hope.
Thank you to Kelly for the talk. Thank you to Erin for the talk. Thank you to Karrie for the day. And thank you to Rebecca for the email.
Oh, and thank you to Elizabeth for the hope.
Come on sails, let’s go catch some wind.
