Not ok Monday (4-10-17)

Hello!
How are you today? How are you really? If you’re like me you probably answer most of the time by saying, “I’m good” or “fine” or “hanging in there.” I think most of the time I really am doing better than just “good” or “fine”. But sometimes, well, sometimes I’m not fine and I am anything but good. Sometimes I’m not hanging in there. And sometimes I need to step back and say to myself, “you know, I keep going, I keep pushing, I keep doing all these things I’m supposed to be doing. But the truth of it is I’m not ok. I’m not good. I’m not hanging in there, I have fallen off the edge and I can’t find a place to hang on to.” 

Right now, I am good. I really am doing good. But I know someone who’s not. I know someone who is putting a smile on their face and walking around feeling numb inside. I know someone who’s hurting. I know someone who is overwhelmed and doesn’t know where to begin. To you, my friend, I say “I love you”.

There is so much more I want to say but I think this song says it all…

“Sometimes you can’t make it on your own 

 Sometimes you can’t make it 

 Best you can do is to fake it 

Sometimes you can’t make it on your own 

 Tough, you think you’ve got the stuff 

 You’re telling me and anyone 

You’re hard enough 

 You don’t have to put up a fight 

You don’t have to always be right 

Let me take some of the punches For you tonight 

 Listen to me now 

 I need to let you know 

 You don’t have to go it alone”

Let me take some of your punches my friend. You don’t have to go it alone. 

Love,

Kendra
