You’re having a day.
Guess what? So am I!
Let’s join each other in encouragement.
We know it’s hard. It’s stressful and sometimes it’s even lonely and painful.
And yet I know I don’t want to give up. And I know you don’t want to either. Because right around that corner or even the next time we try to go at a problem and process those feelings of frustration, there is the possibility that it could go away.
What is the purpose of always being in a position of trying to solve something? Sometimes I’m not sure. Sometimes, I want to look up at the sky and say, “Okay. I got it. I don’t need to be tested today. I think I learned what you are trying to teach me.”
And that’s when I give myself little rewards.
Like a tall iced mocha with skim milk from Starbucks.
Or a really great salad full of freshness that boosts my immune system.
Or a walk to the nearest green spot to chill and buffer myself from what could be called the maddening crowd.
Or listening to my favorite song over and over for at least 10 minutes.
You deserve to find little rewards for yourself too.
You are totally worth it in every way!
For I truly believe we are all trying to do our best in a beautiful but imperfect world.
And those small rewards are like little jet packs that give us a boost to get through the trying times.
Hugs to you my precious Resilient Readers!!
Whatever it is you planned to do today, go forward, for I know you can do it!
