everything is going to be okay

Today was not my day. 

It was hot (the car thermometer read 101 on the way home), I was tired, and I was sore from yesterday (biking ~17 miles). We had some troublesome campers--ones who kept wandering off or not wanting to participate. One kid even punched me in the stomach for no apparent reason (it hurt).

 Nothing was right.

I got home and I just wanted to cry.

Sometimes it just feels like that--
The little things all add up like building blocks 
and then topple over,
crushing me underneath.
I need to let it all out...
...and then stop, breathe in and out
and know that it is going to be okay.

It's not the end of the world.

There is so much more out there than
the bad things that I'm letting weigh me down.
There is so much more beauty in everything;
I just have to find it.
So today, I'm forgetting about the frustrations--
I won't let them bury me.
I am stronger than that,

and I will be okay. 

It's been a few hours now since I told myself that 
and you know what?

I am. 

Now that I've calmed down,
taken a breather,
everything is just all right.
Even good, I might venture to say.

How are you today?



  1. Hi KeNdAlL i DuNnO wHo YoU aRe, BuT uR bLoG sUcKz, Go LoOk At MiNe, It'S sO mUcH bEtTeRzZ lOlOmGwTf!!!!1!!!

    Sorry, I just wanted to do what you said not to :)

    I'm sorry you got punched in the stomach. :( I know what you mean though, when you're pissed and then everything seems to happen to you, and you just want to cry. Generally, I do actually cry. I cry a lot.

  2. Hey... i felt like that today... I felt a bit of the pressure of playing music (drummer guitarist etc.) I felt like i was going to explode into tears, but I called on God and he made me feel better. maybe you should too :)

  3. Awww, I'm sorry Kendall! Sounds like a hard day. I'm glad that you feel better now. Some days don't turn out the way we want them to at all. :(

    That's why I'm so thankful for the start of brand new days. :)

  4. And when I feel my worst, that's when I have to ask God to help me and give me peace.

  5. Sorry it wasn't your best day :( But I like your attitude towards things! I think I will bookmark this post, and whenever I'm feeling really down, I can look at this and reassure myself it's okay.

    My day has been.. okay. Not too much hype, not too quiet.
    I'm glad you're alright now :)

  6. I totally understand those days. I'll be praying :)
    I'm not feeling 100 percent right now either, it's soooo hot this time of year.

  7. Aww,I'm sorry Kendall!! But what a great outlook you have on things :)

  8. everybody has those days, I'm sure. I hope you feel better now- there are truly days when nothing seems to go in our favor, but somehow everything turns around and it's all good again. you've got a very special blog here. perhaps you'll visit me sometime?
