"The world breaks everyone, and afterward, some are strong at the broken places." - Ernest Hemingway.
So Many Metaphors.
About challenge and #strength. Creative destruction. And, overcoming obstacles and tragedy in this life.
So fair warning... I've got another one coming.
There's a greater #reason for all of these words we use to describe the one who faces down his demons and becomes more... or, sadly shrinks in the process.
And to me it's a simple one... every single one of us comes to that crossroad.
All of us have that moment of choice to take the difficult path or to sit idle in our version of comfort and simply take the scraps #life tosses at us.
Human #nature tells us to go with easy in the moment, rather than suffer the consequences of the hard road for only a chance at more, bigger and better.
Take a chance or stay comfortable... only the #irrational would push back on comfort.
Today, I find myself laughing and crying with wifey this morning because of the #pressure I have felt to go beyond myself and master new domains.
Some decisions panned out. Some haven't. And I own both.
But, I will not allow the negative forces to compress me... make me #small. No. I push back.
With everything in me, I push back.
I refuse to accept the #limitations I feel around me, closing in on me like a shrinking room.
That will not be my fate.
I am meant for #great things... and will fight for my own expansion. As should you.
And as much as I want to come from light, there is a time for going #darkside. In that place you can gather energy and strength in the toughest times and push back against all the pain, disappointment, and limitation.
Don't live in that place, but visit it as needed. For no man may reach his heights without knowing his depths.
What are you felt like giving up on? Share your words below.
Sight + Light.
Remember: there is #norestfortheworthy
Be. Do. Have... In that order.
