There will be bad days. Be calm. Loosen your grip, opening each palm slowly now. Let go.
Be confident. Know that now is only a moment, and that if today is as bad as it gets, understand
that by tomorrow, today will have ended. Be gracious. Accept each extended hand offered,
to pull you back from the somewhere you cannot escape. Be diligent. Scrape the gray sky clean.
Realize every dark cloud is a smoke screen meant to blind us from the truth, and the
truth is whether we see them or not - the sun and moon are still there and always there
is light. Be forthright. Despite your instinct to say "it's alright, I'm okay" - be honest.
Say how you feel without fear or guilt, without remorse or complexity. Be lucid in your explanation,
be sterling in your oppose. If you think for one second no one knows what you've been going
through; be accepting of the fact that you are wrong, that the long drawn and heavy breaths
of despair have at times been felt by everyone - that pain is part of the human condition
and that alone makes you a legion. We hungry underdogs, we risers with dawn, we dissmisser's
of odds, we blesser's of on -- we will station ourselves to the calm. We will hold ourselves
to the steady, be ready player one. Life is going to come at you armed with hard times
and tough choices, your voice is your weapon, your thoughts ammunition -- there are no free
extra men, be aware that as the instant now passes, it exists now as then. So be a mirror
reflecting yourself back, and remembering the times when you thought all of this was
too hard and you'd never make it through. Remember the times you could have pressed
quit -- but you hit continue. Be forgiving. Living with the burden of anger, is not living.
Giving your focus to wrath will leave your entire self absent of what you need. Love
and hate are beasts and the one that grows is the one you feed. Be persistent. Be the
weed growing through the cracks in the cement, beautiful - because it doesn't know it's not
supposed to grow there. Be resolute. Declare what you accept as true in a way that envisions
the resolve with which you accept it. If you are having a good day, be considerate. A simple
smile could be the first-aid kit that someone has been looking for. If you believe with
absolute honesty that you are doing everything you can - do more. There will be bad days,
Times when the world weighs on you for so long it leaves you looking for an easy way
out. There will be moments when the drought of joy seems unending. Instances spent pretending
that everything is alright when it clearly is not, check your blind spot. See that love
is still there, be patient. Every nightmare has a beginning, but every bad day has an
end. Ignore what others have called you. I am calling you friend. Make us comprehend
the urgency of your crisis. Silence left to its own devices, breed's silence. So speak
and be heard. One word after the next, express yourself and put your life in the context
-- if you find that no one is listening, be loud. Make noise. Stand in poise and be open.
Hope in these situations is not enough and you will need someone to lean on. In the unlikely
event that you have no one, look again. Everyone is blessed with the ability to listen. The
deaf will hear you with their eyes. The blind will see you with their hands. Let your heart
fill their news-stands, Let them read all about it. Admit to the bad days, the impossible
nights. Listen to the insights of those who have been there, but come back. They will
tell you; you can stack misery, you can pack disappear you can even wear your sorrow -- but
come tomorrow you must change your clothes. Everyone knows pain. We are not meant to carry
it forever. We were never meant to hold it so closely, so be certain in the belief that
what pain belongs to now will belong soon to then. That when someone asks you how was
your day, realize that for some of us -- it's the only way we know how to say, be calm.
Loosen your grip, opening each palm, slowly now -- let go.
