Rise

rise /rīz/: an upward movement.

rise. rise. rise. rise. rise.

Photo by me. Yes, I colored my hair. It's cute.

These words have been stuck in my head for the past twenty-four hours. You see, I am a thinker, a believer and a dreamer. Sometimes I get so caught up in the "where am I going?" I forget to stop and reflect on the "what is happening right now?"

Life.

Life is, well, life-ing. I am, well, living. Realizing now more than ever that I must depend on God. My own understanding is nothing compared to the plan he has for me. I must rise.

My reflections led me to this moment. To this idea.

Rise. Sometimes all you need is an upward movement. You need an upward momentum. You need one person to believe in you as much as you believe in yourself. You need love. You need to rise.

Life.

Life is full of ups and downs. Disappointments. Trials and Tribulations. Tribulations then more trials.

But tonight I leave you with one word.

Rise.
