September had its own trials. My company went through layoffs. The anxiety in the air was palpable. Somehow I was calmer than I had expected, as if I pulled out an inner strength within me that was there all along just waiting to be used. There is this song by Eminem that I played on repeat:
‘Cause sometimes you just feel tired, feel weak
And when you feel weak, you feel like you wanna just give up
But you gotta search within you, and try to find that inner strength
And just pull that shit out of you
And get that motivation to not give up, and not be a quitter
No matter how bad you wanna just fall flat on your face and collapse
‘Till the roof comes off, ’till the lights go out
‘Till my legs give out, can’t shut my mouth
‘Till the smoke clears out, am I high? Perhaps
I’mma rip this shit, ’till my bone collapse
Early one morning I woke up to find that we have a plumbing issue, and our condo was ankle deep in water! I laughed it off and said, these are the kinds of problems I want to have in my life. They seem so silly and little now.
Thank you September, for the silly little problems.
