Flying in disbelief, a re-post

Greg Shield
I had to re-post this because right now I am in a place that is both uncomfortable and yet comfortable. I think I am comfortable being uncomfortable right now. I am living outside of my comfort zone and I am ready to become comfortable again. Or at least that is what I think sometimes.

What do you do when something in your life is not going the way you envisioned it? When your happily ever after turns into something quite different? Something that not even you could have imagined and do not want to believe? When reality slaps you from behind and you have no choice but to face the music?

I believe that is the test of our strength and our commitment to succeed. It happens everyday. It is not always apparent to those around us and that is okay, some struggles are meant to be private. Whatever happens and whenever it happens, just remember that nothing last forever. The bad times will fade and never ever ever doubt yourself. You can live without certain people or certain things in your life, you cannot live without yourself.

"I've been through hell," she said. "It's hard to think you have this life, and then all of a sudden -- was it a lie? You're struggling because it wasn't real. But I survived. It was hard, but it didn't kill me."
