Feelings are yours to use

It’s not a gaping chasm or a concrete wall. It’s a feeling, and you’ll get beyond it.

More specifically, it’s your feeling. And you can choose what to do with it.

You can choose to hold it, treasure it, despise it, let it launch you into unstoppable energy or melt you into pure mush. And when you choose, you can let it go, move on.

The feeling is strong, yet you are stronger. The feeling may last for a minute or a month, while your purpose persists beyond every feeling.

There are feelings you once felt would never end, that you now cannot even remember. Feelings are awful, feelings are wonderful, feelings are yours to use, to embrace, to change.

Let the feelings fill you, teach you, move you, make you a thousand percent alive. But don’t let them stop you from being the best you can be.

— Ralph Marston
