Was just re-reading a post from this time last year and it's like I could have written it yesterday! I realize that although it's been a year full of growth and change, there is a part of me that still feels exactly the same. Here I am saying goodbye again. Realizing more and more that maybe this quote above is true. That no matter what we are just doing the best that we can.
There are some things (and some people) that we cannot repair. Let's be honest, some days are really shitty days. We have all suffered our own losses, faced fears and been broken. This shittiness (yes I make up my own words) is the commonality that binds us. Maybe having these flaws are what helps us to carry on. Knowing that though our fight may be our own, we are joined to each other by the jaded pieces of our souls. Everyone is fighting something or healing from something. We all may just be getting by - carrying our baggage and wading through. Maybe we need to celebrate just rising every day. Just opening our eyes. Just taking that breath and trying to put one foot in front of the other.
