There will be days my friend,
When you feel like you just can’t go on.
Just keep swimming.
Breathe in and breathe out and wait for the light of a new day to dawn.
There will be days, my friend….
When nothing seems to be making sense.
It’s not supposed to.
Clear your mind and open your heart, the answers will come in time.
There will be days, my friend…
When the pain rises up and engulfs you.
Be kind to yourself.
Lay low and let the tears flow like a river, release, open the floodgates, let it out.
There will be days my friend…
When it feels like the whole world is against you. When it feels like you cannot do right for doing wrong.
Just sit it out.
Tomorrow is a new day and these feelings will pass. I promise.
You see, life is all things, from one day to the next.
It is beautiful at times, wondrous, amazing, and joyful – then it is awful, miserable, and heart-breaking.
And the cycle goes around.
It is as it should be.
Everything is as it should be and you, you will be okay.
Keep hope in your heart.
Tomorrow is a new day.
