There are points in time when we really need to choose something else.
🌿When the great lengths to be trekked are more obvious,
look back if the urge is there
but also find motivation
from the distance already travelled,
and perhaps in knowing
that the desired destination may already be closer.
🌿When it's more human to feel the stress, pain, or heaviness
from the hardships and trials,
rest if need be
but choose to heal and recharge
to get back up and move on.
🌿When the words and tones of fault-finding
are more pronounced and louder,
listen and respond if you can't avoid the sounds or conversations
but choose not to believe what can put the spirit down for good.
🌿When it's convenient to give up
and give in to overwhelming odds ahead,
rethink and review steps as necessary
but also choose to let such be
for a better path towards the goal.
🌿 When it's easier to mourn the past,
do so as humans need to
but choose to learn from the experience.
It's fine to reflect on what had been
and accept such to be
if it will help in doing what's needed
for the present
towards a better future.
There's always something positive to find
but, even if everything seemed to be bleak,
always choose to believe there's hope.
