Do You Need Some Inspiration? Here You Go!

It’s been a while since I’ve written an inspirational post and I am definitely in need of one, so this is not only for you…it’s also for me!  Here goes nothing:

This month has been CRAZY!  The word “stress” is definitely an understatement.  I’ve been so stressed that I can feel it in my shoulders, in my back, my head…just everywhere.  I will spare you the details and focus on the lessons of said stress.  For starters, I’m learning not to put my faith in man and when I say “man” I mean people in general.  I’m almost forced to only rely on God and prayer and I think that’s what I’m supposed to be doing because it’s helping.  I’m finding myself being super sensitive with just about everything, so prayer offers some solid alone time with just me and the big guy upstairs.  I need to refocus, set up a game plan and work towards certain goals within the upcoming months.

Is that enough of a pity party for you all?  Ok, it is for me so that’s where it ends (lol).  All I’m saying is, just go through the motions of whatever you may be experiencing and start praying hard.  When you feel yourself getting angry or frustrated at the world then it’s time to take a step back and just relax.  As the saying goes, it could always be worse so search for perspective.  That’s what I’m trying to do.

Monday Confessions…

Normally Monday is blocked out for showing others how to become a blogger, but instead, I am going to do something that some bloggers stray away from…making it personal.  The past month has been craaaaazy!  I’ve seen death, I’ve seen sadness, I’ve seen friendships change, I’ve seen betrayal, I’ve seen families being torn apart, I’ve seen struggle, I’ve seen pain.  There were small sprinkles of fun and laughter, but mostly just a whirlwind of THINGS!  Some of them were my things and some were not my things.  A part of my journey to fulfilling my life’s purpose isn’t just filled with fun and exciting blog posts; there are major lessons and tests that I experience along the way.  When I put everything together, it becomes the sum of a greater whole…each piece of the puzzle playing its own role.  I firmly believe that everything that occurs in this lifetime is a lesson to be learned.  Regardless of the trials that I go through, one consistent lesson that I always come away with is that life is so darn precious.  It is so important to recognize/right your wrongs, to appreciate your blessings and to forgive others even when they don’t forgive you.  I’m not afraid of people seeing my bad days because I am who I am.  I’m in constant growth and change and perfection has never been claimed.  I have done plenty of things that I am not proud of, but one thing is for sure…I can always humble myself enough to recognize/right my wrongs, appreciate my blessings and to ALWAYS forgive (even myself).  Maybe this will be just another post that you read today, but I’m hoping that it will help someone along their journey and to be a reminder that you may be in the midst of your storm, but there will always be sunny days again.
