It’s Okay To Not Be Okay

I accept that I will not always feel alright or have the answers I desire.

“I accept that I will not always feel alright or have the answers I desire.”

Sometimes, the hardest thing to do is to grapple with the unknown. To be comfortable with the spaces in between where you are and where you’re trying to go. We like the familiar and feelings of comfort so finding ourselves in this position could prove to be very hard for a lot of us. I often say to people in the silence of four walls I discovered me. I had taken the time to step away from everything to focus on myself and my immediate family. There was no calling my friends when life was kicking my backside; I only had myself. That was a scary feeling but leaning into the experience taught me a great deal. I found that I wasn’t distracted from my emotions and influenced mentally or emotionally by others. The experience gave me the opportunity to feel every bit of each moment. To realize that I could lean on myself as much as I had come to lean on others. To understand that I’m not going to be jovial and bubbly all the time but, I will be doing the inner work needed with each situation. I just had to learn to accept that I’m not obligated to make it look the way others would like it to and that was okay. Life can be messy as hell, and we will never have all the answers. What we will always have is the solace of our mind, heart, and spirit.
