Optimistic Pursuits

"If y'all was capable of getting it, I wouldn't mind explaining
If y'all was capable of getting it, it wouldn't need explaining"

It feels like it's been a while since I felt like I was in a positive place with something positive to say. Not that I feel like it's anything wrong with expressing your lows as well as your highs. Had a whole lot of lows lately, but they balance life out so that your highs are that much more meaningful. I'm ready to get back to being productive, creative and optimistically in tune with life and all of the benefits and blessings you overlook when you can't see through the storm clouds. Had a lot of stormy weather lately but it has passed. Storms will return without a doubt, but weathering this one is a major victory. Stepping out into the sunshine letting it revitalize me and put back a lot of what was lost. Self care is super important, and when we get so invested in others that we lose track of ourselves we drift so far out that getting back to shore becomes a life or death struggle that we don't have wiggle room to fail. I struggled really heavily recently with seeing me clearly. I allowed others, my circumstances and my environment to overly impose on me views and self defeating rhetorics that I knew were lies and half truths, but they were still so easy to get sidetracked and distracted by. I say that to say that absolutely none of us is perfect and we're all gonna burnout at different times. The thing to remember is that we aren't done until we're done, and even then who knows? I can't speak for everybody, but me I'm back in the fight. There's a lot of work to be done and a whole lot of progress to be made. To the people who heard me reaching out for help thank you for hearing me. To the few who not only heard me, but actually reached out to help, thank you even more deeply. I have something to offer this life and existence. Won't act like I know what that is, but it's something and I'm gonna do so. That's a promise I intend to keep.
