365 Days of Joël Day 264 Sept. 21st My 'Just Obviously Ënjoying Life' moment today is this... Challenge yourself everyday. Challenge your mind to prevent it from stopping or stalling you. Challenge the situations in your life and dare them to stand in your way. You will prevail. You can do it. Set your path one step at a time.
I did that and I do that every single moment of every single day. Let me tell you why.
I lost all my best friends to death. 17 years of friendship. That is a total and not a combined numerical representation. I lost people that I would talk to every single day. I saw some of them every single day. I shared every facet of my life with them. A majority of my life is with those people. The memories I've created and the experiences of life are rooted with those people.
If you want to know further, then keep reading..... I hear their voices. I feel their energy. I feel they are present. There are moments when I am in this floating mode of seeing myself and observing the moment unfolding before me. I get to see it from that perspective as if those people are still here able to experience life through me.
I amnot crazy...... What I explain that to be is the memories of my life taking me on a journey mentally so that I can make it through the moments of hurt, sadness, challenge and questions. The best parts of them are always there. During the true need for those best friends, that support group and those confidants.... I am channeling everything that I ever learned from those friends.
I quote a lyric written by someone I respect and that has had my emotional journey in all music, visual and art form. "I fight a battle every day
Against discouragement and fear
Some fool stands always in my way
The path ahead is never good
I must forever be on guard against the doubts that skulk along
I get ahead by fighting hard
The fighting keeps my spirit strong" - Dawn Richard
