Beautiful Struggle

Every day is a struggle.  Every day I struggle.  At times, the struggles are frustrating.  They can be overwhelming, annoying, and so draining.  At times, my struggles are relentless, relentless to the point I just want to quit.  I just want to give in, give up.  The struggles beat me down.  Wear me out.  Why won’t they relent?  Why do I have to daily endure these challenges, these testings, these struggles?  Why can’t I have at least a little peace?  At least a little rest once in a while?  The struggles can consume me, engulf me at times.  They never truly stop, they never truly let up.  They are constant.  I know that they are forever a part of my life.  OK.  It’s OK.  The struggles exist.  They aren’t leaving.  The struggle can be beautiful.  The struggle is beautiful.  In the midst of the chaotic struggle, I have learned to find beauty.  I have learned to use the struggle for my benefit.  I have learned to use the struggle as fuel for my fire.  The beautiful struggle.  Some way.  Some how.  I continue on.  I will continue on.  Through the storm.  Through the chaos.  Through the weakness.  Through the pain.  Through the frustration.  Through the loneliness.  Through the anxieties.  Through the struggle.  I can’t quit.  I won’t quit.  I will walk on.  March on.  Run on.  One step at a time.  One task at a time.  One day at a time.  I will learn in, through, and from the beautiful struggle.  I will grow.  Mature.  Change.  I will become better.  Stronger.  More driven.  More focused.  More disciplined.  I will overcome.  I will win.  I will share.  I will endure with gratitude.  I am thankful for you, my beautiful struggle.
