20 – The Sun Rises Every Day

Life is heavy and difficult. Just when you think you have it figured out, something comes from the middle of nowhere and kicks you down a peg.

Sometimes, it is just a minor set back. You bounce back like nothing happened. Other times everything you know and believed in vanishes, and you are left back at square one again. Just the thought of restarting can be utterly overwhelming.

Relationships. Jobs. Friendships. Projects. Investments. It doesn’t matter what it is, if you are unprepared it can knock the wind out of your sails.

These are the times it is important to remember that life is wonderful and incredible too. No matter what happens, or how badly things seem to be going, the sun rises every day.

Sometimes I forget.
Sometimes I get overwhelmed.
Sometimes I feel like life is swallowing me.
Sometimes I feel like spending the entire day in bed.
Sometimes I just want to eat my problems away.

Thankfully, the next day always comes. The sun rises and shines. It reminds me of all the wonderful and amazing and beautiful things in life.

My boys, my family, my friends. Running and biking. My job. My health. My creative outlets. All things I am grateful for. All things that remind me that it’s not so bad.
