No matter how far down that rabbit hole you fall …

rabbit“Each night, when I go to sleep, I die. And the next morning, when I wake up, I am reborn.” ― Mahatma Gandhi

Everyone gets tired. Tired because they’ve physically worked hard, tired because they are mentally exhausted, tired because sometimes everyone feels like the entire world is against them. And it isn’t any fun when you fall down that rabbit hole and try as you might — scratch, cry, plea — you can’t find a way out. Can’t leap out, can’t crawl out, can’t scream for help to have someone else lift you out.

But. Even on those dark days when you walk around with a sign on your back that says “Kick Me”, even then there is always light at the end of the rabbit hole (or the top, as it might be). Because there is always tomorrow and so long as the breath remains, there is always hope — always. Which is exactly why, no matter my past disappointments, no matter how many times I’ve been tired and started to descend that rabbit hole, I am always reminded that it’s those struggles, those moments of “disaster” that have made me who I am and for that, I will always be thankful and never once will you hear me say, “I wish I would’ve …” because had I, then I wouldn’t be me. And I kinda like being me.

Today’s prompt only slightly inspired by the Daily prompt: From the Top“If you had the chance to be reborn, would you choose to return as your present self, or would opt for a fresh start? Tell us about what motivates your choice.”
