When the going GETS TOUGH

“I’ve got a lot of problems I have to deal with…”

Digging up precious jewels isn’t ever going to be easy. It wouldn’t be so rewarding if things came to us to easily. You want to unlock your full potential, and that only happens when the going gets TOUGH.

The healing comes when you don’t focus so much on the feeling, unpeel the emotions and you’ll see the commotion, senses can be deceiving,

A sudden clever idea is as satisfying as retrieving deleted memes,

After all that mining, you’ve finally struck a diamond, (it would’ve never happened if you didn’t endure the ROUGH) you grow to have a new found admiration for prior dire situations,

When you may have contemplated dying, lying down lifeless due to stress, suicide only exacerbates suffering, your soul recycles, putting you back into the cycle, back with the psychos,

You’ll never know whom you’ve inspired through all your trials, give them a result that’ll make them smile,

Progress exists at every mile you trek ahead, no point in ending it, you may reincarnate and restart the process again.

Just like in an ultra-marathon, very challenging to the human spirit, but we want to run ’til we get to the finish line. No sense in quitting, you’d have to start over next time.

“I don’t stop when I’m tired, I stop when I’m done.” – David Goggins

Nevermind the blood clots, sweaty wet drenched socks, rocks blocking our path, stumbling on rough rubble.

Nevermind the leg stiffness, shin splints, nerve pain kissing your latissimus muscles, running fumbling, but you’re still living.

We’re on a mission to win this, and many are present to witness your gifts, talent and resilience.

Wife. Writer. Poet. Artist. Lyricist. Born in December 16, 1995. Mexican-American. Southwestern US born -> Grew up in the Chicagoland area & Northwest Indiana (mostly East Chicago) -> moved to a warmer place living that Southern coastal life. I've been writing since like around the late 2000s. Depression and anxiety was swallowing me and I had difficulty trusting others, so I decided to confide in writing. It started off as Spanish songwriting, then it evolved into English poetry, prose, and short stories the more I improved my English grammar and vocabulary. I once had to take ESL classes, until it was determined that I didn't need to anymore around middle school. I became so dedicated to writing that I just did it everyday, and it served as my daily therapy as I was battling with negative thoughts. It put my mind in a state of meditation where it opened me up to many ideas and inspiration that I lived to create. I began to notice that I could write and speak things into existence with my words and actions. I had to find myself, and search for the power of the mind.
