rocky-mountains-225604_640You're standing. Still.

Life has stopped. And, you can't remember the last time you felt like you could move forward, like you could plan for your tomorrow, like you could make a decision about your future. You can't remember the last time you felt like you achieved a goal, accomplished the To Dos on your list, looked ahead to see a future of possibilities.

You're standing still but feel like you're about to fall backward from the swirl created by all the forward movement of those around you. You'd love to swirl, too. But you feel like you can't go forward because you've got too much to carry, too much to manage, too much to take care of. You. It's just you. Which is why you stand still.

Except that you're overlooking one important detail. You're still standing.

Sure, you've fallen but you got up. You probably just got up from another fall. You continue to face the storm as you stand your ground.

Because you're still standing, you will move forward, you will step into your future.

You will be okay because you know how to stand still as chaos rules. That's a talent.
