It’s funny how life catches up to you when you least expect it. I’ve spent so much time running that I’ve finally had to stop and catch my breath and that’s where it found me. Winded and exhausted and anxious. I rarely allow myself to feel any sort of joy or excitement for things these days since I’ve had so much trauma surrounding happy things. This is how I’m trying to remedy that. It’s not always one step forward three steps back. Sometimes it’s ten steps back or a marathon forward. Either way, we all have to start somewhere. Even if we’ve had a million beginnings.
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
