Encouragement goes a long way. I thought to write today about this topic.
You know, everyone you meet is going through something. A lot of people would never tell you about the battle they are going through. Not everyone wants to broadcast what their issues are. Or for legalities, they can’t.
It’s safe to presume that the majority of the people you meet are going through something. They possibly can’t talk about it and even if they do it’s our job as compassionate human beings to slow down , do something humane and listen.
Sometimes we feel like complaining and that’s ok. It’s ok to feel sad about a situation we are going through, but it’s not ok to stay there. I have met a lot of women who were addicted to drugs or alcohol and these women had children. These women could not think about anything but their fix. I’ve even met women who had to get their fix while they were pregnant. These womens’ rock bottoms I would never want on any one.
Some women I have met were prostituted out by their mothers when they were just 17 years old. These girls had PTSD because of their situation. To make the situation worse one was half blind and deaf.
Why am I sharing this? No, it’s not a guilt trip. There are women who would just rather not share to any one what they had been through so instead they just smile a pretty smile.
We keep hearing about people who suffer and they just keep going and you wonder, “What do they have that keeps them going?”.
The answer is very simple. It’s hope. Hope of a better future and hope that the best is yet to come.
I encourage you all to make today the best you can. I don’t just mean sucking it up and moving on and I definitely don’t mean be a “Bitch” and take on the day.
Be yourself, be your sweet self. Be the woman God created you to be. You put your best foot forward with the intention that something amazing will happen today. God blesses excellence, So be excellent.
If you kept trying the same thing for years on end and you have the same result you need to bust out of your normal routine and do something different.
Stop feeling victimized by your situation. Feel the feelings, now shake that off. You are unique and needed in this world. The people who hurt you, forgive them and move on. The people who didn’t stand by you, forgive them and move on. Don’t waste any more precious time and energy on hating anyone.
You might have been hurt, but you’re definitely don’t need to be stuck there.
When you keep thinking about the hurt, you expose your wounds and your feelings. What you need to do is to just move on from the experience. Things really do happen for a reason.
If our lives were meant to be so easy then we would never develop any character. I’d rather go through trials and tribulations and be the strong woman I am today than to never have lived at all. Life is about living! That means things are going to get tough and at times they will be easy.
The strong move on. Be the best version of you today and go out into the world and be blessing to someone.
I don’t just say this because it’s easy for me to say. I am about the most real person you’d ever meet. I don’t hide behind my computer and have a completely different life. I live by these virtues. I have had a rough life, but I forgave and I moved on and now my life is the best it’s ever been.
I hope this helps you today
