“The only Courage that matters is the kind that gets you from one moment to the next.”
From The Old Blog, November 24, 2014:
I can only take my life one day at a time. Getting through today is enough work and enough of a struggle. I lose confidence in my ability to survive when I imagine doing it all over again tomorrow. Regardless, every time tomorrow comes, I get out of bed and survive once more.
It is a relief to know that having only enough courage for one day is all that matters. I’ll worry about tomorrow’s courage tomorrow because likely in that next moment, I will find the courage I need to keep going.
That’s all I need, and that makes it a little easier to survive.
I really felt a string sense of peace with what I wrote last year on this day. It was not *completely* about struggle, it was not about making good or bad decisions, it wasn’t about a friend I seemed to be over fixated on. Rather, it was about me – the raw me – the true me. While some days are better than others, I still days that feel like this post: can’t imagine making it past this one day that I am living. What is of ultimate importance, however, is that I just make it through the day I am living. Tomorrow is another day.
