They’re not coming

What do you do when the rescue crew doesn’t come? When you don’t wake up from the bad dream?

It happens more often than not. The magic fixer doesn’t show up out of the blue and make all your troubles disappear.

So what do you do?

You take a deep breath. You stand up, and you push forward. You advocate for yourself. You pick yourself. You save yourself.

You stop telling yourself the story that you’re a victim ... and you start telling yourself a better story. One where you’re a fighter. One where you’re resilient. One where you chart your own future, and it’s filled with beauty, generosity, and contentment. Not a future that’s given to you ... but a future that’s of your own design. The one you seek, and the one you make.
