Sometimes there are lines from movies or books that really stick with you.

They resonate on a level that’s hard to understand but always seem to come right when you need them the most.⁠

One for me has always been a line from Hagrid in The Goblet of Fire.

He says to Harry, “No good sittin’ worryin’ abou’ it. What’s comin’ will come, an’ we’ll meet it when it does.”⁠

It’s easy to get in your head about things. ⁠

Fear has a way of gripping the soul. You sit there worrying and catastrophizing…thinking about all of the ways things could or might go wrong.⁠

That energy feeds upon itself and can soon paralyze you completely if you allow it to. ⁠

And yet, once you come back to what’s actually here and begin to clear your mind, you see that you’re only “here” and all of the things you were thinking about don’t actually exist. ⁠

False Evidence Appearing Real.⁠

From that space, making decisions and allowing for courage to shine through are infinitely easier. The deepest wisest version of you comes out to run the show and you make the decisions that are right for you.⁠

You’re going to get through this. ⁠

Maybe you’re right at the beginning of something or have been navigating through it for quite some time. Nonetheless, you’ll find your way. ⁠

You’ve done that time and time again in your life. No matter how bad things were you found your way. There were probably times during that process that you thought there was absolutely no chance of making it out. ⁠

I know I’ve been there. But every time you find yourself sitting in the dark, take a moment to recognize that you are the light. ⁠

You’re the one finding your way through all of this. What’s coming will come. You’ll know what to do when it does. ⁠

You always have. You always will.⁠
