Yet again I get back up…
I always write about listening to your inner voice and how over and over when I don’t, things turn out bad. Today I am writing about how all of what I talk about is practice, we need to do it over and over and over again until it becomes a daily routine.
The studies say if you do something repeatedly for 30 days it becomes a habit and you are more likely keep it up but even then you may fall off the wagon. My point today is that no matter how many times you fall off that wagon, God keeps giving you another day to try again, to change things, to make things better but it’s up to you to try again.
If I quit after every failure, if I let them win after every let down, every time I fell on my face or had the rug pulled out from under me I would be in a rubber room by now. Yes, I sometimes have a pity party, table for one, I cry, I sometimes scream, I definitely asked why me but then I realize he’s got this, I will be okay and I can and will get through another day.
For me it’s funny, I get messages, a song will come on the radio, I will go to church and the message will be exactly what I needed to hear, a friend will post something on my Facebook page just what I am going through without knowing it. These are signs we need to know so that we can and will keep going. These signs give us hope and they are tiny bits of strength for us.
Fear is a huge factor for so many of us, can we do this? Can I support my family? What if I fail? I am afraid, I am not smart enough, pretty enough, skinny enough, rich enough…. We have all thought this, at one time or another, so feel free to add your fears in the blank.
Whatever they are, we all have them and sometimes let’s be real, change is really scary, the unknown is really scary and we don’t want to go there and fail.
I tell my girls, failure is good because it teaches you a lesson and there is nothing embarrassing about it. Great people failed before making it big, Thomas Edison, Colonel Sanders, Oprah Winfrey, even Walt Disney have all failed multiple times, but they never gave up.
Hell, I failed and have fallen on my face many of times and then I write about it for the whole world to see, now that is scary!
People you don’t even know you, are judging you but I don’t care what they have to say. I put it all out there to let my readers know that they are not alone, that if I can do this, so can you.
I am not special (except in God’s eyes) I am no different than you, you got this, we got this, it will be alright just keep practicing.
So today my friends remember, each and every day to pratice positively, practice gratitude, practice letting go of the fear, stop it in its tracks when you feel it. When you start to get anxious, when you start stressing, stop take a deep breath and go back to that happy place of peace. Some nights as I am trying to sleep, things pop into my head and each and every time, I stop, and then go back to my positive thoughts even if I have to do it a thousand times before I fall asleep.
I know those thoughts come but they are not staying and making themselves comfortable in my head!
This is my mind and I control it! And yet I get back up again….
This message today was for me, if you got something out of it, bonus plan!
