Standing Tall

Sometimes it feels like it is impossible, it will never come to be.  You will never see the light.  You feel alone.

Layers. Of clothes. Of snow. Of duties. It is never-ending. It is relentless. At least that is how it feels when you are right in the thick of it.

You plod forward.  Doing what needs to be done.

And, then one day, while you’re not really paying attention, the layers start disappearing.  You’re lighter.  Freer.

Before you know it, you’ve accomplished the seemingly impossible.

You are now standing tall in pride.  You did do it.

All by yourself.

  1. Very inspirational story! Me being me, after “And, then one day, while you’re not really paying attention” I was expecting it to go the other way entirely 🙂

  2. What a satisfying feeling that is to have worked for it and accomplish your goals. I like the idea of removing the layers and feeling lighter. Ah, so much better. Nice one, Dale.
