This journey is never easy. I totally get what you mean like you feel like you are trekking through a mountain, in a snowstorm and no scarf. That weather will not always suck and the sun will shine. Hang in there-
Who knew? That climbing your mountain in a snow storm is worth the price of admission to any theatrical play or performance you had to say. Who knew, that without the small comfort of the scarf, you would have failed like you were meant to do? You have only delayed the inevitable. That the snowstorm will come to pass with or without the scarf at your side. I like to imagine and understand that people in this world have managed with far less optimism and still survive.
