All we can ever really do is be a companion.
To ourselves.
To those we love.
To those we hate.
To the world that we inhabit.
To the time and space that we have been offered.
Against all of the odds, we get an opportunity to do this with the waking of each new day.
Let that sink in for a second, read it a second or third time if need be.
It’s quite the miracle.  
Let that guide the coming and goings of your days, rather than the current that comes your way.
