Oh, we all are the strong ones. We all are the happy ones. And we always smile. You, and me we are overwhelmed by life and all its possibilities, perspectives and choices. But sometimes you feel pressed down by all the questions you need to answer, by all the urgent things you need to do, all emotions you try to deal with. You try to control, or at least to influence everything and everyone around you, while trying to hold yourself together and making it all work and be done. And be done on time and in the best way possible. And I know that sometimes you try hard not to try at all.
We all try, try, and try. Sometimes so hard, that at the end of the day we collapse on the floor because of exhaustion as soon as we shut the door and no one is watching. We struggle to trust life and ourselves again. And you know what? It’s not a failure. It’s not a sign of weakness. It’s not a mistake. That is a truly beautiful moment to give a break and to stop trying. Stop trying so hard, my dear! Stop pushing for answers and let all the questions rest. Stop trying to handle it all today. Stop make it done. Let yourself not know how. Let yourself not know why. Let yourself not give a fuck! Let your heart break and body feel weak. But most important – breathe. This is the magical moment of creation. It’s always the darkest just before the dawn. And there is a lot of inspiration in the darkness.
And then stand up again to take all these opportunities and challenges and go open new doors and kick down the walls, if necessary. Because now you are even stronger than before!Photo by Lena Scherer
