The unimaginable happens and you have no idea how you will make it through. Sometimes you may feel as though you don’t even want to bother. Yet, we all have those moments at one point in time or another. There is life on the other side of the storm. Those moments when you must dig deep within and find the strength to endure. Rise from the ashes! There are those moments when you can’t see beyond the moment. There are those moments when you don’t want to hear “there is life on the other side of this” because your “this” is so traumatizing, you can’t see beyond it.
How we choose to manage our circumstances is totally a ball that is in our court. We fall down but we get up. We plunge to the deepest, darkest, part of our being but something inside of us longs to survive. We find ourselves fighting to rise out of the darkness. It is a slow journey, but we eventually see “the light at the end of the tunnel.”
I always say that everyday we wake up, it is an opportunity to set an example. It is an opportunity to change things. It is an opportunity to do better, to grow, and to heal. Someone made the analogy about eating an elephant one bite at a time. Now, literally, we are not in the habit of eating elephants. But when faced with inconvenient situations, impossible situations, we must take one step at a time, one day at a time.
We all have endured some situation in our lives that has almost taken us to the point of no return. If we take our eyes off the moment and focus on where it is we desire to be, our goal, our destiny, we can take the necessary steps to see our way through difficult times. Sometimes it may take therapy. Prayer, meditation, and daily affirmations that help you make it through. Our lives are so full of difficult moments, but we must focus on the good times, the magnificent events, the joys. As with any storm, tornado, hurricane that leaves destruction in its path, life goes on afterwards. Life may not ever be the same. Life may look different but as long as we are living and breathing, we have life. Be encouraged and remember that each season of life that we come through, makes us stronger. We have the opportunity to take what we have learned and help others through their difficult seasons. Give yourself credit. Be gentle with yourself. You can endure. You can overcome!
