No Feeling is Final

Kendra 2013

When I am in the throes of a panic attack or a week when my anxiety over takes everyday, normal tasks or when my depression makes me want to stay in bed and do nothing…I remember this:

“Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final.” Rainer Maria Rilke

Life moves forward and so do your thoughts and feelings.

As trapped as you, and I both feel in the emotions and thoughts and moments in our life right in this instant…it won’t last. Life will go on, and as much as you might not believe it right now, the terror will be just as beautiful later on.

You will come out the other side of this and remember where you used to be and that…THAT will make life so much sweeter later on. You will come out of this and you will take your experiences, the good and the bad. You will be ready to do something with those experiences, you will embrace them and use them to help others or just enjoy your life so much more fantastically.

No feeling is final.

This panic, this sadness, this ache in my stomach and my heart is so hard to deal with and feel right now. I KNOW. I’m there with you right now. I’m feeling that tender pain and that depression that grips me and won’t let go.

But I remember that time will pass, this feeling will pass and others will take it’s place. Worse ones and better ones. And those will pass too.

No feeling is final.

    Yes. No feeling is final. YES. I love that. And this post.

    Just yes. It’s comforting to know that we only have to get through this moment. One moment, one thought, one feeling at a time.
