We Can, We Will, We Do

There are things we think we will never accomplish. Loss we think we will never get over. Pain we think we will never survive. Relationships we think we will never replace. Loneliness we think we will never endure. Guilt we think we will never get past. Shame we think we will never shirk.

But we can get over these feelings of despair, despondency and destitution. We will get over them. We do get over them. How? At first, just by taking it moment to moment. Pausing to congratulate ourselves on still being here, still hanging in there. Then it becomes an hour, half a day. Eventually days go by and we’re doing okay. The days string out into months and eventually years. We didn’t get here by saying we would, but by simply taking the very next step, doing the very next thing. We got here moment by moment, but we got here.
