The ups and downs are both part of life. However, none of this is helpful for those in the middle of the struggle. But, I can promise you this. The bad, just like the good, will pass.
If the downs hit you hard and bury you under what feels like an overwhelming, never ending journey through bullshit, make damn sure to give as much attention to the good. Embrace the dark and the light.
Time is never going to wait for you to catch your breath.
The universe will not beg you to dance with it. It’s your choice to put on your best dancing shoes and stop trying desperately to lead the song and be more willing to change rhythm when the moment asks for it. Keep dancing even if the song sucks. It will end soon enough.
When your song plays, make damn sure you’re already on the dance floor and ready for it.
