Just keep GOING.
Seriously, that is the message I have for you and myself.
As part of human nature, we depend and love momentum. A constant need and love for movement and feelings of progress. Although, what happens when we lose it, or feel as if it is gone?
I know I am guilty of just wanting to give up. From coming out of an argument with loved ones, or having a sudden feeling of panic, rapidly everything you worked for seems pointless. Unreachable. Unimaginable.
Over the past couple of weeks, I have been going through ALOT of doubt. It usually comes out after being a little scared, nervous, or upset. Automatically, I attack the things and people I love most. How can I get hurt by others I care for deeply (that is called ego, discussion on that sometime soon) and then on top of that, tell myself what I love isn’t worth it? Questioning my passions and growth being worth the work, the failures, the smiles, and the growth. Sometimes the question turns into, “Am I even moving?”
What growth has actually happened? Regardless of what you believe in the moment, what keeps you going and smiling is helping you grow everyday. That subject, work, or dream is worth it and tangible. That smile you have is a constant assurance. The feedback you receive is the reflection of your work. That lightness in your heart, only grows when we the constant growth of love. Love of family, work , and your own being.
We always hear how to never give up or to get back up when you fall. But, growing up.. there are times when you do need to let go. Letting go is the conscious phrase for quit. Because when you let go, you are letting go of what doesn’t serve you. When you quit, you quit a habit, a job, a dream.
So when you feel doubtful, stuck, or unsure of your passions, stay in the feelings a little longer if you must, maybe cry a bit. And then, let them go. Because what you want will always come back to you. Passions are inescapable. Almost like love. That feeling lingers forever. And if it’s something you care for deeply, that made you work harder, smile brighter, and left you to be a better person, then maybe it is the best thing for you. So move on, and keep it going.
