"Things will always get better. After all, when you've hit rock bottom, there's nowhere to go but up." -Unknown
Lets face it.
We all hit rock bottom.
We may not know it or feel it or acknowledge it,
But sometime in our life, we will feel the world crashing down on us. It will try to drain us dry, the sand will swirl around and cloud our vision. We will be lost amongst the storm, our fists on the ground, and our pleas disappearing into the wind, but we do not have to stay there.
Once we've hit our lowest low, the next thing to reach is our highest high.
Yes, rock bottom beats us down and it makes us feel like we have nothing, that we are nothing, but we are not.
There is nowhere left to look.
You can either spend the rest of your life looking at your feet, the cold cement comforting your despair or you can look up and up and up.
The list of opportunities are endless.
By looking up, you have already left rock bottom.
Just imagine, you are standing at the base of a volcano. You are inside where lava used to flow.
Imagine climbing and climbing and the light at the peak is getting bigger and bigger.
And all of a sudden, you are there and the top is finally in grasp. You pull yourself up and when you look around, you are surrounded by the most beautiful forest.
That is true now.
You can give up. You can gladly accept rock bottom, but why?
Your heart does not beat for nothing.
It continuously goes up and down and that's exactly what life does.
Go up and up and up and find your purpose. We all have them. Don't you want to know?
Let your adversity of sticks and stone lay down the empire you build yourself.
It's going to hurt and it's gonna be hard, but it's worth it. It will never not be worth it.
Like J.K. Rowling once said, "Rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life."
