Monday Morning Motivation…..Seek Hope...

The Butterfly: A symbol of hope and new life "By the struggle to free herself, she strengthens her wings enough to survive and fly."

I find it hard at times to keep smiling, to keep my hopes up, to keep going.  When you have been abandoned and thrown away it takes its toll both emotionally and physically.  I fill this emotional pain with activities.  As long as I stay busy I do not feel the hurt, I do not feel the burning of my skin brought on by the anxiety of this emotional pain.  What keeps me going?  Friends that hold me up in prayer, friends that take the time to call, to listen, to go out with me to talk and laugh and just have fun.   Family that take the time to call and visit and give hugs.  Caleb:-) Prayer and time spent reading inspirational stories also give me hope.   I like a quote from a movie called Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs… "But when all seemed lost I stared at defeat and found hope" Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be cons…

Monday Morning Motivation…Grace in weakness

Dealing with the complexity of emotions in a traumatic life transition is far from easy. Many days I just want to go back to bed and pull the covers over my head.
I like this quote from Guideposts Magazine
"Happiness is not the absence of problems, it's the ability to deal with them" Steve Maraboli
I am trying with all that is in me to lean on God and to find joy in the situation I find myself. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."  2 Corinthians 12:9 Happy Monday Everyone! Enjoy Your World:-)
