When All Else Fails? Faith!
There are days, weeks and even months when life will beat you down. It will make you question everything you are and everything you have. Everything that you don't have and everything that you want to become.
You'll wake up and dread the day ahead. You'll stay up at night and not sleep. Dread will be filling you up with what the next day will or will not hold.
Your appetite for life has gone as well as your hunger for passion. You look for answers in food, drink, drugs, sex, material possessions but the short term hit will NEVER satisfy you.
In a world where you are always told you are not good enough, what will stop you from sinking? What will help you swim to shore and avoid being pulled under?
How do you survive when you feel that life itself is against you? When gravity itself, the force created to keep you planted is just another thing keeping you stuck.
FAITH! HAVE FAITH!
Have faith. Have faith that things will get better. Have faith that there will come a time when all of your pain and hurt is a distant memory. Have faith that no matter how low you sink you will rise again.
Have faith in you, me, the universe or even god! Whatever it is, just have faith.
If you were with me now I would take your hand and you would see the faith in my eyes. The belief that all things can change. The belief and conviction that I have would show you that life does not have to be a hopeless cause. You would see that you are not alone.
I have been there and I made it through. I made it through so that I could help you.
Your eyes must be opened to a life that is filled with endless possibilities. A life that is not written and can be shaped from moment to moment. A life that is a gift and one that you deserve to live filled with joy and boundless energy from one day to the next. No matter your age, race or sex.
When all hope is gone. When the day seems darkest. If the pain and anxiety in your chest and stomach become too much to bare. Have faith. Faith that someday, one day in the near future you will wake up, smile and leap out of your bed.
You'll remember that life is precious. That you are alive and that there is no secret to living.
Change is in you. It's there. You are closer than you think. In that, have faith.
Take a few BIG DEEP breaths in. Feel your heart beating, lovingly, unconditionally.
You are perfect. You are safe. You are loved.
