Some days I not  motivational part 2


I have been through a lot in one lifetime as most of us have and I, like you sometimes feel like why is this or that happening to us? We try to do the right thing, we are good people, yet somehow life throws us curve balls to knock us down, out of the blue, Bam! There they are!


Like yesterday when I went to the dentist for a crown, normal routine crown and then I am told I have a tumor in my gums, that I  need to go right away to a specialist for a biopsy.


My first reaction is how much is this going to cost me. As a single mom that is always my first reaction, besides from the fact I still needed two other crowns done and both my windows in my car recently broke, I am just freaking out about paying all these bills.


With everything else I’ve been feeling lately this was the straw that broke the camel’s back. How can I possibly work more than I am working? How am I  going to do this? This all is too much for me…when am I going to get a break?


Here I am in the dentist chair crying about my situation because I felt so overwhelmed. I know so many of you can relate to this, it’s hard, so hard to have to do this all on your own, you have no one there to lean on, to help and sometimes it’s just all too much.


I walked out of my dentist office in a daze, is this bad? How bad? Should I be worried, how worried?

How am I going to pay for this?

So many emotions going on inside my head but the one I kept thinking about was Why me? Why can’t I catch a break, when I go three steps ahead, I get knocked 5 steps back. I get one blessing than something terrible happens.


I drove to the lake and sat in my car and cried and then I prayed, I opened my bible and the 1st page I came too was “Through all your trials, through all your pain and anguish, there is a reason, its so you can tell others of your testimony, God is strengthening you, because he has great things for you, you will be a support for many others”


I cried even harder because to me that was my sign that all of this is for a reason, so that I maybe able to tell others, to give hope to others, let them know not to give up, that its okay to cry, to feel overwhelmed, to ask why me but then its time to get your strength back.


For me it’s God, for you it might be something different and thats okay, just find your strength, dust yourself off and pick yourself up and keep going.


For so many of us, its the fear keeps us stuck, fear of change, fear of the unknown, fear that we can’t make it. We don’t look to think that maybe this will be the best thing that ever happened to us, that this transformation, this tragedy, this pitfall will make us stronger or that it will give us a testimony to help others.


Now here’s the scarest part, we need to have faith, to believe, to hold on during the storm and still give thanks about all the other blessings you have, that is true faith, letting go even when you don’t want to, trusting that this is what is best for you even when you can’t see it now.


So today my friends, don’t be afraid to cry, don’t be afraid of the unknown, let it go, take a deep breath, pray, find your strength else where but never, never give up, you might not feel that motivational today but your story is and it will be to someone else tomorrow.
