Guest Blog: Into the Mist
I was clearing my head last night and starting writing down about what people see.
Sometimes it's too foggy to see ahead and sometimes we want to stop. We get scared of the unknown behind the wall of fog. We stand still, unsure of what to do.
Do you go through? How far does it continue for? What happens if you get lost? There are multiple of unknowns.
So what is the other side?
The other side is beautiful. The other side is peaceful. The other side is free. The other side is clean. How do I know? I've been through the fog.
But trust me when I say that it doesn't stay that way forever. There are always decisions to be made, bills to be paid, and the world won't stop turning. It can be very easy to get caught up, lost, and give up hope.
But for all you know, the fog only lasts two feet, two minutes, two days. You will never know until you start to walk through it. It's an even better journey when you walk hand in hand with your supports.
Don't be beat by fog, fog is just water and water is clear.
