butterflyShould I be in, doing this, you may wonder. Shouldn't I be out, doing that?

Because when you're in, you're working harder than you thought possible. Working hard to keep your patience, stay upbeat, stay ahead of the game. And, when you look out, you see others in a seemingly easy life. They walk out of their house without a worry, they drive away without a care, they chat happily on their cell phones.

Life looks so much better out.

It's okay that you are in. While you're in, make plans for when you'll be out. Release yourself from the walls that keep you in by making plans for who you will be out. Weigh your choices, create your options.

You're in. But you will be out. Rather than resenting the time, make the time give you an out.
