Life is full of obstacles and hardships.
You fall down and pick yourself up.
You fall down again and pick yourself up again.
You fight and fight with all your might.
Using mental, emotional and physical strength.
Then the inevitable happens to you.
The feeling of failure starts to overcome you.
“I can’t do this anymore. I give up!!”
That’s your train of thought.
Don’t want to keep going anymore.
The exhaustion starts to become weakness.
The darkness has taken over.
You’re blinded with no way out.
Emotions are exploding out of you.
Then it happens, the light shines through the darkness.
Your heart feels whole again.
Strange feelings start to take over.
Your heart beating fast and slow at the same time.
Butterflies fluttering in the pit of your belly.
A feeling you thought couldn’t ever exist.
A happiness you never felt before!
