Yesterday I asked for people to let me know some topics they would like me to write about. So far I have had only one suggestion. “What is the number 1 message you want to get across with your blog?” That is a tough question. This blog was started as a simple means of stress relief. I never intended on having hundreds of people read it. I just wanted somewhere to put down my thoughts and empty my mind. I have posted funny stories about my life, and I have poured my heart out about some of my hardships. I have written poems, and I have bitched about politics. There is no real rhyme or reason to this blog. At least that is what I thought until this morning.
After spending some time thinking about that question I started to go over some of my old posts. The more I read the more I realized I actually do have a message. It is all about me. Not me as a person, or my life, so much, but me as a human being on this planet. About joy and hardship. About loss and love. About the day-to-day things that humans endure. It is about how much pain a person can feel and how low they can sometimes get, and how that seems to always be followed by something wonderful.
People out there, everyday, feel the same types of pain that I feel. We all deal with that pain in different ways. Some ,like me, write about it. Some keep it locked up inside, and some take drastic measures, like a total life change, or even suicide. The message I want to send everyone is that today might suck. Today might feel like life is stepping on your face and laughing at you. But keep reading! If you keep reading you will see that giving up will only make you miss tomorrow, and that is when something wonderful might happen. Maybe you lost your job today, or your wife/husband left you, or your car broke down, and you feel like you can’t handle it anymore. Well guess what! Tomorrow you might get that job offer that you have always wanted! You might meet the woman/man who you are truly meant to be with, or you might find that your insurance will cover the cost of replacing your car with a new one that you love.
One thing that I am sure of is that tomorrow is always better than today, because it means you made it. You pushed on and now get to live another day watching for that wonderful moment. It might not be the day after the darkness, but it will come. I am living proof of that. And tha,t I suppose, is my message.
