“When cloudless skies thunder, stand fast.”
– Phaedra, from the film Immortals
There are not always clouds to be seen. There are silent and deadly storms that can not be detected that sweep into our lives and test us. Through the storms, whether we see then coming or not, we must always do our very best to stand fast. Do not be troubled by dangerous and hard times, the rain and mud are there to help. Whether we let it or not is the challenge. Stand fast. You have complete control. If you fall, get up. No matter how dirty or messy the journey gets, do your best, do what’s right, remember that you are not alone, and keep trekking forward. Don’t stop, for anyone or anything. Take a break when you need to, but keep moving. Pace yourself. You’ve got this. You can make it. I believe in you. Know for yourself that you can do it. You can make it through anything. Believe in yourself.
