The best way out is always through.
In a motivational write up by Travis Johnson titled, The Best Way Out Is Always Through, he shares the meaning of Frost’s quote, “to get some sort of healing for a situation, to get “out,” we must embrace and go through our ordeal wholeheartedly, with inquiry and desire for self-awareness.”
So how are we getting through these days? Well...
Asking, asking, asking “why?”
Walking, walking, walking the path
Staring, staring, staring at the wall
Crying, crying, crying in the night
Lifting, lifting, lifting the weight off our shoulders
Leaning, leaning, leaning on others
Dancing, dancing, dancing in the kitchen
Drinking, drinking, drinking another cup of coffee (or glass of wine)
Listening, listening, listening to sweet sounds
Meeting, meeting, meeting online
Reading, reading, reading critically
Learning, learning, learning daily
Distancing, distancing, distancing from friends
Surviving, surviving, surviving another day
Reflecting, reflecting, reflecting on self
Pondering, pondering, pondering purpose
Creating, creating, creating something new
Building, building, building stronger relationships.
Speaking, speaking, speaking truth
Being, being, being present today
We are...Traveling, traveling, traveling through
It’s not easy and there is no one solution when getting through. It’s difficult, delightful, heartbreaking, and eye opening.
Be well my friends, do what at the time feels right to get through.
