Just One of Those Days

It’s frustrating to feel like all the things you want in life are juuuust out of reach.  You can see them, they’re so close. But you can’t seem to figure out how to grasp them.  It can be discouraging.  And, if you allow it, that discouragement can completely obliterate your efforts to keep reaching.

I remember in kindergarten whenever the class would venture beyond the classroom, everyone had to line up in pairs and walk hand-in-hand. To keep order and to keep us from straying and losing our place.  The buddy system.  I could really use a system like that right now—someone to take me by the hand and make sure I stay focused and keep fighting. We all need to be our own cheerleaders, but on days like today the encouraging reminder would be nice.

Daily Prompt: Buddy

  1. I had to hold on to a very long piece of rope with the other kids, half on one side, half on the other. It not only gave us a buddy on the other side but also kept all of us connected.
    By way of this comment, perhaps I can be your cheerleader for a sec and remind you to yes, stay focused and yes, keep fighting. You might not be able to see it right now, but you have lots of buddies out there who are also holding on hard to the big rope we call life.
