We all need something to push ourselves when we’re down. Our own personal pep talks. Well, here’s a little insight into my mind. It’s just fucking life, I tell myself. Anxiety gets me bogged down at times, not the way it once did but hey, I’m no perfect person here. Anxiety is a whole other ball game that I don’t even wanna get into tonight… we’ll save that gem for another time.
But, DAMN do we ever get worked up over the little things, hey? Life is hard, yes… shitty? Yes. Devastating? Totally. Can’t have light without darkness, and vice versa. You need both. I am both darkness and light, completely, with neither one taking the lead. And I love both sides of me. I give full attention and care to both. I don’t act like my darkness ain’t there, nor do I hide my light. Side note: I also embrace both my grammatically correct side and my small town country girl side, ha! I see the world very grey – understand both the black and the white, and tend to meet somewhere in the middle.
But as I was saying… the little things, ah! The little things. It’s great when the little things in life bring you joy. What about when you get stressed out and angry over the little things, though? Totally different story. It’s just life! Repeat it ‘til it sinks in. We’re all gonna die one day or another. Hey, I’m just sayin’. So what really matters? There’s no knowing how long we are here… could be gone tomorrow. It’s just fucking life. And those little things will be over and finished within the blink of an eye. Adjust your focus. Life is what you make it. Create your own reality and come up with your own pep talks. Have your own back. What ever is inside you is all you need to be great – you just need to search within. Don’t look around you, look inside. No one else is going to know what you need. YOU know what you need. Be versatile, adapt… and be fucking ruthless. Be a wolf.
