Feeling tired? Working hard? Maybe it feels like this week you are just going through the motions and it feels like your life has become the literal definition of grinding it out. 

Me too. 

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
— Christopher Robin, Winnie The Pooh

These things happen, and often after we've just had a great week... maybe we pushed to hard, maybe we got carried away, maybe just maybe, it's none of these things? 

Maybe you can't figure out why your tired, you just know that theirs copious amounts of coffee that you are consuming... but you also know that things are shifting, things are changing. You have some forward momentum, you can almost see and feel that you are breaking into the next level, the next season or maybe you are watching your dream finally come to fruition. 

So what do you do on a down week where you can't seem to get things going... where your hustle and grind is still there, and you are still rolling, but your creativity seems to be bottomed out, and you just feel a little lifeless... what does one do in a situation like this? 

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death...
— Psalm 23.4

Here's what you do... JUST KEEP WALKING. 

Keep moving forward. Keep grinding. Keep smiling. Keep creating. 

Know that this is just one week, and while you may feel like, "you don't have this," you actually do... because it's what's within you, not how you feel about it that makes all the difference in the world. 

So go do your thing, and CRUSH IT! 

To borrow from the Psalmist, what do you do when you walk through the valley of the shadow of death... you just keep walking... it only feels like death.
