This quote really hits home for me today. I got SO FRUSTRATED yesterday while I was trying to get some computer work done. The internet was not working. There was literally nothing I could do about it. I was getting more and more frustrated.
So, I took a step back. The frustration was just the surface emotion. What was underneath? My old friend, fear. I was upset because I felt like if I lost another day of “not getting anything done” then I would lose my progress. If I don’t have tactile, measurable progress toward my goals everyday, then what do I have?
I have everything I had yesterday. I have everything I’ve learned thus far in life. I have love & happiness in my life. Fear tells me to get upset over the slightest threat to my external definition of success. And yet here I am, one day later, with nothing changed. HERE I AM LIVING DESPITE IT ALL.
Yesterday it was a simple issue. Tomorrow, next month, next year, ten years - the issues can (and will) become more complicated. Tough decisions, deaths, losses, whatever. But it’s the tiny ways we notice, every day, where are fear stems from and how to sit with it. So that when the big things come we can handle them with grace. Every “big thing” is just a thousand tiny things strung together.
You’ve got this. You are supported and loved. You will make it through anything, despite it all. ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
