We all have our problems we must deal with. The albatross we carry around our necks every day. And we’ve all heard the phrase, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade!” This, of course, means we should try and make the best out of a bad situation.
But it’s not always that easy. Sometimes life throws you off and tosses you around and maybe even ties you to some train tracks and leaves you there to become railroad pizza. You’re an ant walking in a line, and life is the mean kid who builds a dirt wall around you, disrupting your path. Sometimes life makes you wonder if it’s even worth your time.
Life is a bitch. But for every big heavy rock life hurtles at your face, you learn how to dodge it and become smarter. You climb over that dirt wall and become stronger. You accept that it is not easy to get what you want, but you can’t live in your dirt hole forever.
I came to terms with the fact that I have a neurological disorder, and I keep drawing even though it’s difficult. Because it’s what I love to do. In my last post, I got it off my chest and opening up to everyone about it made me feel better, and I sat down to draw today with less dots than before.
When I get another job I know I will stress about it, and the dots will come back with a vengeance. But this is my dirt wall. This is my reason for finding a job I truly love and am excited to get up in the morning for.
Life is hard. You were born when you never asked to be born, into a society that you did not design and may not agree with. Life doesn’t always hand you lemons, it’s not always that simple. But we overcome. We find the things worth living for. You’re the only thing holding you back sometimes. Climb out of you hole and show life how to do the impossible.
