Hang in There.

What doesn't kill you makes you stronger.  Thanks Kelly Clarkson, and thanks to last night's Glee episode, that song is stuck in my head.

This is going to be a very short post.  I have written several paragraphs, several times, and deleted them.  I know some people who are going through some tough stuff right now, and I cannot intrude on their privacy, so I won't.  But today they are all I am thinking about, so I can't think of anything else to write about.

For anyone out there who is struggling, for whom time seems to have stopped or stalled in a dark place, or for whom joy feels so far away--The clock ticks again.  You will rise up and out of this, stronger than you were before.  You will learn what's important in this life.  You will feel sheer joy again, you will stop feeling guilty about laughing.  You have people in your life who love you and are pulling for you at every moment.  Hang in there.

  1. As one of the people you're talking about in this post, I'd like to encourage anyone else you're talking about in this post to remember that only positive things come out of a positive attitude and that no one ever prospered from despair. In relation to yesterday's post about music I'll quote OneRepublic, "When everything is out, you gotta take it in," cuz ya know, this really could be the good life, its just up to us to make it that way. Remember, even when it's cloudy, the sun really is still there.
