How to Keep at It When Everything Says QUIT
Of course you want to give up.
And for so many different reasons:
· I’m too busy with other stuff.
· I’m too worried.
· It’s raining.
· It’s sunny.
· I’m pretty content.
· I’m hugely depressed.
· This won’t amount to anything anyway.
Well, exactly 21 minutes ago I snapped this picture because I was thinking about you and hoping you were hanging in there:
Not for me and what I’m doing, but for yourself, struggling with whatever it is you’re struggling with.
If you can afford to do it for others who have expressed a need here on Medium, please do. I plan to soon as I have more than $8.28 in the bank.
But for yourself, listen to your body, your emotions, your deeper reactions.
Fear and anger usually sit at top, are the loudest, and try to rule the room.
Tell them to sit down and you — you, my friend — just wait for the quiet voice.
The one that’s buried underneath all the junk of modern life.
The one that says, “Just. Keep. Going. Stay curious and open.”
