When life becomes overwhelming what do you do?

Can you give up? No. That’s not a viable solution. The only thing you can do is acknowledge where you are and come up with a plan of action.

Today was one of those days for me. A day where I felt like everything was just caving in on me. I am so tired of the lack. Not having enough of this or that. Shuffling this to pay that…Wow!!

At the same time, in the midst of my angst over my situation, I still say “Thank You!” to GOD for what I do have. I have a grateful heart because I know that I didn’t have to wake up this morning, nor have a roof over my head, nor food on my table but I do. I have my health and my family. So, even though, on the one hand things seem bleak, they are not as bad as they could be because GOD is in control.

I realize that my anxiety is because I want to be in control but, when I really truly let it go and allow GOD to reign Supreme over my situation, as He has always, then I will look back and be able to say, “Wow, why was I sweating that anyway!”

Now, my next move is to figure out a plan because faith without work is surely dead. So, I need to decide whether I choose to stay at my present job or pursue my calling. So, as a Life Coach, I must sit down and have a session with myself, which folks is the hardest thing anyone can do. To truly dig down deep and help myself find my way. The only thing I know without a doubt is that I was called to be a source of healing for others but, how can I help myself to heal? My clients are finding healing within themselves and their relationships but, I am in need of healing.

What’s funny is that as I write this, I am starting to feel lighter. It truly helps to have someone to pour out your feelings to. So, on this note, I will say “Thank you” for listening to me and allowing me the forum to vent. Additionally, if someone else is blessed by my rantings because they see they’re not alone. Than you’re welcome!!

May peace be with you on your Pathway to Spiritual Rebirth.
