It hits me as hard as running into a cement wall.

It feels like plummeting 500 feet into freezing cold water.

For a second I can’t breathe.

I feel myself falling into the moment.

I try to pull it together before anyone sees.

I can’t fall apart.

I’ll keep going until the next time this happens-get through it-and keep going again.

That’s what life is all about right? I’ll make it through this.

Give me strength.
