Life Can Be Brutal

Sometimes life gets hard, man. Sometimes we get thrown some massive curveballs that shake us up... that’s just part of the inevitable game of existence, it’s the rythym of life. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows and anyone who tells you anything otherwise is lying.

It’s OK to go through what you’re going through.

It’s OK to feel like shit sometimes.

It’s OK.

Embrace what you’re going through, feel it, get emotional, that’s OK! That’s human. That’s normal.

Once you feel ready, it’s time to view your challenge like a great adventure asking you to step into it, as a lesson in disguise begging you to teach you something.

Because you can either let this shitty life circumstance define you, or you can choose to define it, stepping into your power growing and rising from it like a Phoenix rising from the ashes.

As I always say, “It’s OK to go to the pity party... just don’t overstay your welcome.”

My personal mantra when I’m walking through hell and things seem overwhelming? “Let the fire inside you burn brighter than the fire around you”.

Onward and Upward,
