Tough Times?

My strength did not come from lifting weights. My strength came from lifting myself up when I was knocked down.”– Bob Moore

The last several days have been tough.  It has been hard just to find the effort to get out of bed.  It would have been oh so easy just to stay there.

The clock seemed like it was going slower than usual, the hours felt like they would never change.  Days melted from one into the other.

I give myself mental encouragement chats, sometimes they seem to work, other times they just don’t.

I keep reminding myself I have been through down times before, yet, I somehow found the strength to go through them.  Always keeping in mind some of the lessons that I learned doing so.

Today I decided just to sit at my laptop and summoned all that is within me to write this post.  Finding the courage to keep my thoughts in some logical order, not the chaotic ones I have been having lately.

So, I remind myself today the words of Rev. Robert Schuller, “Tough times never last, tough people do”!

    Sometimes life is tough. I have had those days myself, but having a routine has made such a difference for me during this Coronavirus time. And a spiritual practice. Knowing I don’t have to fix everything myself takes the pressure off. Hang in there! You got this.

      Thank you for your encouragement!
      I know that I need to build myself up in the Lord. yet, easier said than done these days.

    I’m not particularly religious, but I DO know from experience that God is bigger than me. Knowing it is not enough, though. I must practice it daily with meditation and turning my will over. I love my 12 step groups, too, for a touchstone!!!! We can’t think our ways out of negative thinking. We must have heart surgery and let a spiritual force take over.
