I’ve been hurting lately. A close family member died recently. Our family is in mourning and we’re getting through it.
Unfortunately I have a character flaw when it comes to pain. I fill my life with frustrating busyness. Errands, checklists, projects that someone else should do, but I take it upon myself to work on them. I’m trying to keep the pain and sadness at bay.
But, that sadness and pain has to come into dock so I can work through it. I’ve got to get back on the horse and get back to what I’m called to do.
Maybe you’re going through this right now. You’re in pain and you might be stuck. I know it’s not easy. It would be a lot easier if all of the results just happened right now. That we didn’t have to put in the work. That we didn’t have to revisit the basics.
But we need you. We need you to pick yourself back up and share your gifts and talents with the world that God gave you.
So to get back on your horse, here are a few simple things you could do today:
- Call a friend and tell them your pain – we’re not supposed to go through this alone. We need community. Even a virtual community can help as well.
- Read a positive article or watch an inspirational video. Getting uplifting messages in your spirit can truly give you a lift.
- Do one thing today.- I wrote this article. I had to go back to the basics of what I’m doing and break it down step by step. We want to get to the end, but we need the materials first. What is one achievable thing that you could get done today.
So I’ll get back on this horse and keep showing up. Let’s take this beautiful and sometimes painful journey together.
What are some of your accomplishments you did today to help get through the pain? Share in the comments or on my Facebook page. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you along the way.
