We may not always know the answers to why? Therefore, we must believe in our faith to be okay with not knowing why.
When I’m feeling lost, I love to pick a random page from the Bible to guide me for the day – faith shows the reality of what we hope for, it’s the evidence of things we cannot see – Hebrew 11:1
Never give up because you don’t know what tomorrow may bring – look for a new experience.
In times of darkness we have to remember that with darkness – also comes light.
At times life may seem uncertain, but all we can do is trust in our faith and our journey.
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a broken spirit saps a person’s strength – Proverbs 17:22
When is it okay to be okay? I’m always preaching that it’s okay to NOT be okay, but sometimes we need to accept that it IS okay to be okay.
The other day I decorated the house for the holidays, which initially I did not want to do, not with the way this past year has played out for me. The past five Christmas’ I have wanted to sleep through, but this year I said, enough is enough. I am so sick of being so sad, that I want to get life back to normal, or as normal as it will ever be.
So…I decided to decorate and celebrate the holidays. People may look at me and say “SHE’S okay” and they can think what they want. They don’t see me crying every day, the social anxiety I carry around with me wherever I go, or the sadness that lives deep-down, inside my heart that won’t go away.
Why do I feel guilty for wanting to be okay, if at least for one day or maybe two? I’m making a choice, to be okay sometimes, but then again, it is okay to not be okay sometimes too. We need to learn to have compassion for ourselves, as well as for others. Love ourselves, because if we can’t, then who can!
