It’s like being caught in a deep current or hiking an elevation where the trail is suddenly lost in a driving rain. It’s not a dream or a fantasy, no waking up or turning off the player, the only option is to keep going. Instincts and experience, prayer and willingness, drive and desire to keep existing, living turn despair into a force, the energy to press on and pull through.
Some days are like this, whether by actual circumstance or frayed emotions. Processing distractions and disappointments, recovering from being wronged and making wrong decisions, missed opportunities and being hit by the reality of our mortality.
Pressing on we pull through. That’s just what we do, you and me, me and you.
