23. How to… reach for the stars.

I am determined that this week is going to be better than the last, but if I’m honest, I’ve been running on fumes since Monday. I went to a discussion group the other day, and we talked a little bit about pouring from an empty bucket. I’m there. I’ve been there. And I know what that means: a re-fill is needed. An empty bucket is literally useless in theory and in practice. So the last couple days, I’ve been sleeping way more than I normally would, enjoying some Netflix and chill all by myself, and indulging in some comfort food and some sparse conversations with really good friends who seem to understand the mindset I’m in and have been totally supportive.

You can’t let the bucket stay empty. Sometimes, life will literally kick you in the teeth, and at that point, you have two choices: You can lay down and let it continue to walk all over you like you’re a door-mat, or you can get back on your feet, accept that you’ll have a black eye in the morning, and keep forging ahead. That’s where I am right now, in both worlds. I’ve got some bruises, and I’m worn out, but I’m refilling the bucket, because I don’t want to simply accept that the unfortunate series of events surrounding the last week is how it’s going to be. I have things to do, goals to accomplish, and I won’t ever do any of that if I stay on the ground just looking up at the sky.

You have to keep that mindset, really. Things are never going to go your way all the time. That’s just the nature of the metaphorical beast. Regardless, you can’t let it stop you from reaching your goals. Some of them may seem far out, but if you keep moving and keep reaching out for them, you’ll catch up to them eventually. Don’t let anyone or anything ever tell you different.
