Feeling Small: Non-Fiction Fiction

                             “Life is an opportunity, take it as it comes”– Sarkodie

I was feeling a bit down in the dumps today. Somehow looking around at the people that inspire me didn’t help much. It all just made me feel more inadequate and wonder where my life is headed. We plan, plan and plan and sometimes the plans most dear to us either get knocked down or seem to be slipping away. They tell you to take the road less traveled, but in that road, it is much harder to breathe and you can’t turn back because the only way is forward. Even though everything might not seem like it will be alright, your strong will tells you that it will be fine. So you keep moving despite it all. When you hear the stories of others, you realize you’re one of the ‘lucky’ ones. In all your luck your story fades into the background of those more tragic; nonetheless, your heart still breaks. This might not make much sense or maybe it might… in all your anxieties, don’t forget to breathe, I can’t say if it will be okay because it might not be but don’t be the one that throws in the towel. YOU ARE AFRICAN!!! You are alive! and you are! so keep walking because your journey is not done yet…not even close.
