Somewhere Between a Rock and a Hard Place

Life happens and as much as I would like to abide by the saying, “let your smile change the world, don’t let the world change your smile”, I cant. At least not right now.

Somewhere between a rock and a hard place, a place so alluring from afar, placed me in a position of a lot of pressure, pain and stress.

Somewhere between a rock and a hard place, my smile changed, my heart got colder, my eyes no longer led to my soul.

Somewhere between a rock and a hard place, I find myself in a position of breaking or persevering. Alas, the adversity that every successful person claims to have faced, overcome and triumph over.

Here, with my back against a wall, at the age of 21, I have learned the most I have ever learned about myself. I have changed. I have been changed. I like it.

Here, between law school applications, LSAT prep, school, friends, lovers and expectations I find myself calm. For I know that He has given me vision, talent and strength. Here, between this rock and the wall I will be hardened not broken. I will succeed, not for my glory but His.

Until next time my love, LingerAlittleLongerWithMe.
