You know, there are just some days when you are wandering around, nose to the floor thinking 'what the heck am i doing?' (okay, perhaps you don't have those days but i do). And then you just stumble upon something that makes you feel better - its like someone is watching out for you and there's a bit of a lightbulb moment. That somehow, someway, it's going to be okay.
Such was my fate yesterday on my lunch break after a particularly rough week. Blaring Taylor Swift through my iphone and just walking to get out of the office i looked down and spotted this attached to the side of an overpass. In the greyness of an overpass in one of the most industrial parts of the city protrudes an antique looking photoframe, spraypainted bright red and with blue paper revealing something that i just so badly needed to hear "Where there's a will, there's a way". Strike me down on the spot - was there a stranger looking out for me? Seeing this girl who seems sad and needing a pick-me-up that even a cupcake couldn't handle was this reminder, glaring at me and saying "Hey, look down, look at me!".
So i did what any other person who may have stumbled on this before - whipped out the iphone and snapped a photo because sometimes you really just need a reminder that this, whatever it is, is worth fighting for. That even though today sucks - and tomorrow might look bleak too, you gotta just keep on chugging.
Yes, my anonymous friend - where there's a will, there is a way.
And happy friday to anyone out there in internet land who happens to be reading. :)
