Not too long ago I wrote about how I’d been struggling, how exhausted I was and how things weren’t so easy. Well I’m happy to say, as you might have guessed, things are on the up! Looking back now I can see how overwhelmed and stressed I was with work, something you never want to admit to yourself at the time. Who wants to have to say that they can’t cope? Especially when it seems that others doing similar things can.
It can be rough when you’ve got used to following a set path – school, travel, university, internship, masters, ???
There’s suddenly an end point where you’re thrown out into the unknown. But then I realised, we’re all in this together. Everyone is just muddling through life, making it up the best they can. Sometimes you hit it and it’s amazing, this beautiful joy can be shared and celebrated with your friends, family and those you love. Then sometimes it seems like you’ve failed and it hurts like hell, but be reassured that you’re not the only one. We’re all in this together and you’ll get back up again.
These moments of reassurance can be long-lasting or just fleeting, moments of clarity.
Perhaps the song that lifts your soul… My personal favourite lately 😉
The workout that releases the stress of the day…
Laughter and escape with friends (either kind)…
Or just pure silence…
Just know that the struggle will pass.
What’s your moment of clarity?
