When you’re stuck in what feels like a staring contest, one where you can’t get yourself to “blink first” because you know it’ll be a downward cycle, you keep staring. You hold strong. You don’t let yourself give in to the ghosts of yesterday or the weaknesses that turn you down today. You allow yourself to keep moving, not blinking. You want more for yourself than being stuck.
When you know you have a million things to do that day. You make yourself move through it. Push harder.
When you know you have a huge presentation or project, you drink more coffee, and just kick its ass.
When you know you have people leaning on you, waiting for you, you do your best to not ignore them. You give them a piece of yourself.
When you know you have friends who love you but disappoint you at times, you cherish the good parts, and focus on how much they do love you.
When you know you have to get to the gym, but don’t want to, you make yourself go anyway
When you know you need more sleep, but can’t seem to get enough, you push through until the moment you can.
When you know you need to eat healthier, but can’t seem to find the time to be better, you make time.
When you know you need more. You find more.
When you know you need to blink first. You blink.
