Sometimes this is what the world feels like.
Sometimes it seems you're surrounded and alone.
Sometimes it's hard to see the dream when all around you is nightmare.
How you react is what defines you. It is when tested that you find yourself.
"Follow your dream" isn't just a platitude, a sign to be hung over your doorway. It's a reminder that you have a certain amount of time to get things done, and it's up to you to *do* them.
The whole world is going into the metaphorical belly of the whale right now. You have to go through it, and it will not be easy. Use this time, as much as you can, to learn, grow, and develop.
A seed planted in the soil is self-isolated. Take root, push up through the ground, and find your sunlight.
No worthwhile victory comes without struggle. And when the world looks like this, remember the victory that follows. See it clearly, and it will inspire you to make it a reality.
