My favorite thing about mid-summer is the robust storm clouds that command the sky. The clouds are so great, so full, that they seem like they would be substantial enough to stand on without falling. Sometimes, I turn to the sky at dusk and imagine what it would be like to live in the clouds, allowing me to be briefly untethered from the weight of my terrestrial existence.
I still don’t know what I’m doing this summer, and with each passing day I become more and more in the minority. But as the weather starts to change, I’m starting to get excited for the things that I do know will happen, like trips to Cedar Point.
Through this, I began to think “why do we get so upset at ourselves when we struggle?” Why don’t we take the time to enjoy the struggle, much like my ‘little dudes’ do? Thus, I’ve begun to let my boys inspire me and I hope they do you too.
Here is a cheesy reminder for whatever you might be struggling with: stick with it, do not give up, and success will come. It is always an accomplished feeling releasing the fish back into the ocean because you have the privilege of having a little bit better of an understanding of the perplexing and beautiful life beneath the surface
