Weathering the Storm

The Recovering Pessimist: "Weathering the Storm" -- There are times where things are just so rough that you can't see the bright side. Storms will always come. Some storms will last longer than others. You will get through it. | #amwriting #recoveringpessimist #optimisticpessimistRVA (Richmond, VA) experienced a significant amount of rain over the past few months. It got so bad that we would go a week plus before we saw sunshine again.

During one of these rainy days, I got inspired. I’m in the midst of tackling some major goals. Each goal requires several mini steps (that are also major on their own) that must be completed in order to complete the goal at hand. I had some setbacks thrown in for good measure and during those setbacks, I found myself asking the same question:

Do I really want this?

“Duh! Why would you even ask that?!” is my first response. But wait, there’s more. When you’re in the middle of the storm and the rain is falling so hard you can’t see in front of you, asking this question makes perfect sense. You want the anxiety to go away. You want your appetite to return. You want the headaches to go away. You just want to achieve your goal(s) & continue to live your best life.

Until next time,
