Surfing Down A Mountain of Lava With Fireproof Shoes

This week has been wildly catastrophic to say the least. I woke up Monday morning expecting a little chaos, but I never thought I’d have to stare down the mouth of a volcano and surf the hot lava with fire proof shoes! LOL

I know, a little extreme, but sometimes it really feels extreme. When everything around you sort of blows up and you don’t know where to start, you just have to pick a place and start somewhere.

Like for me. With three days of straight events and lots of organizing, and lots of files that got lost and had to be recreated at the last minute because of the weather, I tackled each item as first come first serve. Whatever was most immediate, had to be done. I checked off the little steps and slowly, each day became less of a volcano and more of a spitting water fountain. So I grabbed an umbrella. I made it work, and with one day left and just a handful of issues still staring at me from my list, I’m finally, almost done. YES.

So when life gets a little heavy, put on your best racing shoes. Tie those laces tight and set your course. Step out there and keep going. The steps will get easier. You’ll see the end eventually even if you don’t feel it in the moment. Just don’t stop.
