On Thursday, January 17th, around 3:00pm, I felt those words in the depths of my soul. I know there’s more than just the two or three steps I see right in front of me. I know life is more than the pain or entrapment we might feel some days. But sometimes, it’s so hard to believe that.
There has to be more. There is more. Life is more than the feelings of today or yesterday or tomorrow. Sometimes, it’s so hard for me to believe that.
In my times of greatest hardship and struggle, I will remind myself:
There Has To Be More.
