We all have those times when we feel alone, overwhelmed and tired. Life can feel insurmountable, like the pile up of crap on our plate is never ending. Time after time. More, more, more. One thing after another. Where the heck are the instructions? Right? We would all follow directions if only we could all get the same book. But, that’s just not how it is though, is it?

Life happens. While there are certainly factors we can influence, like looking both ways when we cross the street, there are no ironclad guarantees that we’ll get through life unscathed no matter what we do or how we plan. Exercise every day, we can still have a heart attack. Do amazing work on the job, we can still get fired. Do the best we can for our kids, and it may still result in a lifetime of therapy. For greater peace, we must accept things for what and how they are. We have to trust that we are doing our best in the moment and our best is good enough.

“Life is challenging and so are the people we meet along the way.”

Life is challenging and so are the people we meet along the way. We’re all on our own journeys. Somehow, sometimes, our roads seem to intersect marvelously or, conversely, collide horribly. Children, family, work, money, bills and other responsibilities, whatever…the endless stream of demands on our time, attention, financials, energy…is formidable.

But you know what…hang on. A new day will dawn. While everybody hurts sometimes…don’t throw your hand.* You can rally. Stay in the moment, focused on what you can do to manage and cope. Each new moment is a new possibility. Breathe. Don’t quit. Hang on. And come visit this page for daily support. We are not alone.
