Sometimes, all you can do is brace yourself for the incoming storm.
And sometimes, despite your best efforts, you’ll still run aground.
Sometimes, the tide will come in and lift you up.
And sometimes, you’ll be so tired that you’ll want to stay put.
Regardless of your needs, your wants, your desires, or your pleas,
the storm will not abate…until you’re done.
