Even the most inspiring people can have their moments of self-doubt. What matters is how one carries on through the storm. I always find that in those moments it’s important to reach out to those who truly care about is. Sometimes it’s easy to not ask for help. The thing is, you cannot struggle on your own for very long.
We’ve all been there. It feels like everything goes wrong in waves. It’s easy to say you will come out stronger on the other side. It’s probably true, but in those moments it doesn’t feel that way. I’m blessed to have good, motivating people around me. Currently I’m riding my own storm. It’s important to remind yourself that it’s going to work out. Someone close to me, going through their own storm, recently gave me good advice on how to get through it. “One day at a time” they told me. If you’re feeling overwhelmed just remember that today is just one day. Every day is another day closer to the end of the storm. The right person seems to tell me the right thing at the right time. Those are good friends to have.
In the meantime I am finding ways to improve upon things in my life. It’s important to always keep moving forward. If you don’t know me, I have a neuromuscular disability known as muscular dystrophy. My wheelchair van broke down and have been stuck home for about a week. It’s giving me time to address my organization issues. I’ve been able to think on ways to become more efficient with my time. I’m moving forward. While I’m leaving for financial approval for another vehicle I can improve with my free time.
Sometimes all you can do is take one day at a time and make minor improvements each day. The storm will come to an end. Never stop.
