Some days are meant to knock you down
No matter how good life is…sometimes you have to get knocked down
Right on your butt, outta that blue
Yep it totally sucks, doesn’t it?
There you are just walking along enjoying your life
And all of a sudden you trip over something … a speed bump
Who in the hell put that there, right in your way
What in the heck is going on?
What do you do then?
Do you give up?
Do you yell?
Do you even really care at this point?
No you don’t care
Because you are tired of this kind of crap happening
Will it ever stop?
No probably not
But I have an idea
Instead of giving up
How about if we try something different this time…
How about if try to look at things in a different light
I know you don’t want to
I know you don’t understand it
I know it is hard and yes, I know you are tired
But you are stronger than you give yourself credit for
I know, I know… you only see your weaknesses
But trust me, you are strong
I know you don’t see it, but others do
This speed bump in your path, it is growth
That is why it happened
It is not punishment for something you did
It is a challenge
Can you change with it?
Can you move forward?
Can you grow?
We all go through it
We all have speed bumps and pot holes and road blocks in our path
Because if life were easy all the time would you ever learn?
Would you ever grow?
Think about all the stuff you have been through in your life
Some of it sucked … really bad
But if it didn’t
How would you have grown into the person you are now?
Think about it
The answers are there
You just have to let them in
You are light.
You are love.
You are … just let it in
