do you ever feel like a plastic bag?

do you ever feel weighed down by the realities of life? the imperfection. the trials. everything is going ok, and you think life will keep going on just fine. until it doesn't. you find yourself discouraged. tired. and maybe even a bit heartbroken. those times when you question everything you're doing and wondering if all that you're working towards, all that you hope for, will ever turn out.

my wise grandma once told me, "the darkest hour is just before the dawn." i'm hoping that proves itself to be true this time.

after reading this article by writer jeff goins, i've decided to take a break from some unnecessary distractions in my life. i'm not going anywhere, i just need some time away for a while. i'll be back before you know it.

"do you ever feel like a plastic bag
drifting through the wind
wanting to start again.

do you ever feel, feel so paper thin
like a house of cards
one blow from caving in.

do you ever feel already buried deep
six feet under scream
but no one seems to hear a thing.

do you know that there's still a chance for you
cause there's a spark in you.

you just gotta ignite the light
and let it shine...."
