In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on. It’s like a mantra to be repeated over and over again it’s something that has always made sense, but at the same time it is one of the most frustrating things. The more I think about it the more frustrated I get. Yes, life goes on, it is always moving, but why does it have to be so hard? Robert Frost has many quotes that I have come to appreciate. However, there are also some that I have yet to get a grip on. At the moment my education is at the forefront of everything else going on in my life. He says education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper or your self-confidence. So far this has proved most challenging. My learning curve has been taking a nose-dive since graduation. I hope to change this part of me, but I feel as though I’m being crushed from the inside out. Like all hope is gone and success is out of reach, but Frost also says, “the best way out is always through.” It seems at this point I’m just going through hell. My hope is to come out alive and whole on the other side. So, even in my hardest times I must remember that life keeps moving, life is always moving.
I got through yesterday, I’ll get through today.
Words are all I have.
Life doesn’t stop for anybody.
I was so insightful as a 22 year old I suppose. Going to be trying to post more of my old journal posts/short stories from my high school days. I am also trying to transition my ‘stream of consciousness’ posts and poems on here as well. It’s been a bit rough trying to let my creativity and honesty flow, but I am working on it for you all because you deserve it. Thank you as always for reading and for the feedback.
