one step at a time || Mental Health Matters (16)

life is sometimes
a nightmare
but i take it
one step at a time

i only have to survive
one more day
so i embrace today

and when tomorrow get here
i'll only have to survive
until the next tomorrow

as each tomorrow comes
i see the light
in every today
and think
of all the new todays

so i continue my story
one day at a time
without stressing about the future
and only worrying
about today
this is a new strategy i've been working on so i can stop thinking so far ahead and just be in the moment. one step at a time. remember to take care of yourselves, drink some water, and stay safe <3

    Thank you! I will consider it for myself. I agree with Paisley Blue! Truly said "this too shall pass".

    This is a really good mindset to have <3 sometimes the way I can handle the hardest stuff is just telling myself over and over that "this too shall pass" and that really, this moment and this pain is just a memory—everything we live through is just a memory and we will make it through.
    This is a really good poem. I love this series <3 hope your day is going well :)
