So where do we go now
The title says it all. "So where do we go now". What does it really mean to take each day at a time? To fight like hell?
My answer?...Play your role.
If there is anything I have learned over the years it is that no matter what is going on inside I need to play my role. If I am running, and I think a clot is going to stop my heart, "keep running". If I am sitting in a meeting and the air turns to a vacuum, "keep presenting". If I am at my desk and the room starts to spin "hold on and keep working".
The panic will wash over you to be sure, but just like a wave in the ocean that you know you cannot escape, you cannot give up. If you do it will be much worse than if you play your role...and dive head first into it.
Some days are better than others. I would be lying if it said it was any other way.
Some days I forget what I have learned and let the fear get the best of me. Just like the wave I cannot escape, it messes me up and I am left reeling for hours on end. This is a bad day.
Other days I practice what I preach here. I play my role and eventually the show comes to end. I am rewarded with a sense of normalcy, even if only for a little while. That is a good day.
Just play your role. Everyone else is on stage and they are doing the same thing. You are not alone.
