Inertia* - objects at rest stay at rest and objects in motion stay in motion. (short version)
*That's a pretty word, I'm totally going to name my next baby that.
Inertia is definitely real in my life. When I'm in movement (like right now) I am MOVING. I can not be stopped, circumstances be damned. So what if it looks impossible, improbable, insurmountable, doesn't matter, because I'm moving. I'm on a mission, I've got places to go, people to see things to do. Who cares that I don't know how I'm going to get there, I know where I'm going.
Part of me wishes I could stay in movement forever. It would be awesome to always be on, to always have the self-propulsion to move forward even when it looks grim (glim - not a word. I think glum and grim were trying to have a baby) . Yet another part of me understand that those low moments, those times where I'm not moving are necessary. It is necessary to stop and look around once in a while, even if I don't like what I see. And necessary, because it is important to embrace where I am, and the vast majority of the time, where I am is just fine.
