Keep Going

Have you ever heard of this awesome quote from Winston Churchill, it goes a little something like this:

"If you're going through hell, keep going."

I swear, for whatever reason, I just absolutely love this quote.  This is why I respect Winston Churchill, because he accomplished so much and always had a sense of humor.

Anyways it's kind of funny why I am suddenly thinking about this quote so much.  A couple days ago my best friend in the world, or my BFITW, was telling me about this great song she heard on the radio that had helped her deal with me, her BFITW, moving 3000 miles away.  The song is called "If You're Going Through Hell" by Rodney Atkins (the link will take you to iTunes).  Although it's country, I actually really like it, and the best part about it, except for the fact that my BFITW loves it, is that it was inspired by the Winston Churchill quote.  For whatever reason that quote is so very inspiring to me.  It's so simple and yet says so much.

Life, just keep going.

Path to Enlightenment

I feel like crap this morning and I don't know why.  I'm reading this book right now that is supposed to help me control my negative emotions and it says in order for me to do that I need to identify what thoughts are causing those emotions.  So I know I feel like crap right now and I don't like it but I also don't feel like spending the time to discover what unconscious thoughts are causing this negative emotion.

At first I thought I didn't want to do this because I just woke up and am tired.  But as I am writing this I am discovering that part of the reason I don't want to look deep inside my unconscious is out of fear.  Now I just have to figure out what I'm afraid of, which would probably also show me what is making me feel all crappy. 

Enlightenment can be such a pain in the ass sometimes.
