“It’s always darkest before the dawn.”

Florence and the Machine

Sometimes life doesn’t work out well even when you plan and work towards your goals.

This past month has been pretty dark, despite my best efforts. It’s times like these where I fight myself because I want to blame myself and I feel like a failure. In reality, life sometimes throws us curve balls and we don’t always bring those on ourselves. These are the times when we really have to muster up our own inner strength and keep treading water, so to speak. I’m not trying to run a marathon right now-I’m just trying to make it through today.

And if this is how dark it gets right now, then the dawn must be pretty fucking bright. I can’t wait.
