If there’s one thing I’ve learned from a post-apocalyptic world it’s that you will succeed – even if you have to endure a bit of soul-sucking in the process.
If there’s one thing I’ve had to endure in life – err, undeath – it’s squids – soul-sucking, flying squids.
To be fair, the only soles they suck are at the bottom of my feet, but that doesn’t make it any less depressing. Like a brood of deminters, they come out of nowhere, suck the hope out of you, then head on to their next victim.
A Temporary Situation
Here’s the thing about flying squids: sure they suck, but their only goal is to scare you. They pull you up into the sky where everything seems frightening, but they drop you into the lake, where you land… relatively safely. And since zombies are pretty much immortal, it’s no harm, no fowl.
See… cause they fly, but they’re not a bird. No fowl.
Wow. This audience is tougher than the one at The Blank Stare.
Look, life is full of difficult situations. There are may times life seems scary, overwhelming, and frightening. But that doesn’t mean any of that is anything more than feelings.
You Will Succeed
If you keep moving forward, you will succeed. It doesn’t always seem that way, but it’s hard to see what’s real when you’re 100 feet off the ground.
Don’t give up. Don’t stop. Sure, you can pivot, change course, alter your point of view, and make all kinds of adjustments including stopping one thing to start another, but keep moving forward and have fun in life as you embrace the joy of living.
Just because life seems small and insignificant doesn’t mean it’s any less real. It just means your vantage point may be from the tentacles of a mollusk with a penchant for bullying. Don’t let the tentacled cephalopod win. Eventually you will be back on the ground and everything will be as big as life.
Keep going. You can do it! You will succeed. Just keep moving forward.
