I’m reminded of Bob Marley’s song, Three Little Birds, especially when times are tough. I really try to maintain a positive outlook even in the worst of times, but it’s hard. Things haven’t been easy for our nation, for me personally, and I’m sure for a lot of people. I am unable to do a lot of things that I want or that I love, but I make do, because I’m still fortunate.
I try my best to be the best that I can, but sometimes people don’t see it as my best. They can be hurtful, they try to tear me down, they make me feel like I’m not good enough. But when I’m pushed too far, my defenses are up and that’s when I push back. I try ignoring these things, but it gets tough when I’m met with them almost daily.
I know it won’t be like this forever and that I have to keep my head up. And for now, I will just let music and my writing lift my spirits and hope for better days. I strive for those days, and I will get there. I’ve been through so much in my life and persevered. This too shall pass.
Thanks for being my sounding board or just for being there for me. 🙂
