You Can Do It

aliceHave you ever had one of those days where you can’t seem to do anything right?  You can’t seem to make the right decisions, your job stinks, you’re late for a meeting, traffic is backed up, and you just spilled coffee on your brand-new suit.  Just about everything you touch turns to crap!

You don’t dare complain for fear of sounding weak; but suddenly you snap and take a fast train into meltdown-town. Then you feel bad because you realize that there are others who have it much worse.  Or worse, somebody attempts to help out by pointing out how many things you have to be grateful for, that are actually working out for you at that very moment. Then you feel ashamed for not focusing on what’s important; and well, you must be crazy because you’ve just had this meltdown, and you now know that you really had no valid reason for it. You suck, and there’s no hope for you.

Yeah, me too. I’ve been there once or twice, or three thousand times.

I know it’s hard to realize in the moment, but it’s okay.  You are okay.

There are many things that are beyond our control; like traffic, and already-spilled coffee and the opinions of others. So why spend so much precious energy kicking ourselves?

Did you ever notice that the most beautiful and amazing and inspiring things are often those that we least expect? Like when somebody is paralyzed and told they will never walk again. Somehow, despite the odds, they find the strength, courage, and determination to beat the odds. And they do, in fact, walk again.

There are moments in life when the script isn’t written in our favor.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t write your own.

Your struggles are real.  But know that with every step and every breath you are still the game.  And let me tell you that I am inspired by your strength, and courage, and determination.  You will find your Wonderland.
