Struggling Through Each Day

I get those fleeting, beautiful moments of inner peace and stillness – and then the other 23 hours and 45 minutes of the day, I’m a human trying to make it through in this world. ~ Ellen DeGeneres

StruggleYep, I know what she means!

I’ve been finding these last few weeks and months increasingly difficult, and yes, each day is a challenge – A challenge to get through and a challenge to keep myself well occupied all day so I don’t have too long to dwell on some of the events that are affecting me and my family.

Don’t get me wrong, every day I try my best to “put on my public face” and face another day, and many days I manage this with no problem at all. I’m actually quite sure that the majority of those I encounter during my day, they are completely unaware of my struggle, just to get through each day…but if I’m honest, that’s how I like it. I’m not the kind of person who likes lots of attention, nor am I the kind of person who doesn’t mind showing my emotions in public…in fact this is one of my worst nightmares!

I’m being open about this today, as I know I am certainly not alone in feeling like this. We all have things that bring us down: bereavement, illness, unemployment, financial concerns etc etc. So today my message is simply to say, it’s ok to find each day a struggle, because it happens to us all sometimes!
