There’s a song I like that has been repeatedly going through my head the past few weeks. Well, a lot of songs and quotes have been going through my head these past few weeks, my head is one busy place lately, but this one sticks in there and becomes a mantra and reminds me that no matter what, to keep moving forward.
If you’re going through Hell, keep on going..
If you keep coming to the same fork in the road, it has to become obvious at some point that the branch you are following is just a big circle. A roundabout.
“Look, kids, Big Ben! Parliament!”
Everyone has that moment when they just can’t take anymore of the road they are on. It doesn’t matter how good the view may be at times, or how light the traffic. The potholes are still there. Construction, roadblocks. Over and over again, the same things popping back up until finally they have had enough. They veer left. Go the other direction.
I have veered. I am getting off the roundabout that is unhealthy and dysfunctional. The circle of round and round the same issues time and time again. I’ve been here before and if I stay on this path, I will be here again. To keep following this circle is to lose myself forever.
I am nervous. Apprehensive. I am sure there will be times I think about going back the other way, but I know that what is down this new road is going to be so much better for ME. Me. I am allowed to think about me, especially when few others are.
If you are on the roundabout, veer left. You can do this. If I can do this, YOU can do this. And I can do this. And I will.
