"Tell the truth about what it's like to be human."
- Cheryl Strayed
Life has a way of showing that, like seasons, relationships are cyclical. And thoughts of doing things are as temporary as conversations. Whether conditional or otherwise, everything is extremely fluid. Yet determined by factors.
It takes a higher level of understanding and a typified style of grace and maturity to sustain the message that it beholds.
Why don’t things work out when the work was put in?
Is it not the “right” work?
Quite possibly the duration or focus isn’t quite right.
There’s a necessary balance and the need to abstain from the easy way out.
If anything exceptional is to come from authentic effort, then acknowledgment is needed that muscle memory is only acquired by the doing.
The dusted-off knees.
The sweat and tears dripping off your face as you fend away the white knuckled grip of fear clutching your throat.
Maybe with a different opponent, maybe not. Regardless, it’s the bullheaded precision of getting it right or as close to that as you humanly can.
As unsteady or shakeable as it may appear,
only the warrior within needs to see what matters and what it takes to get there.
