Welcome back to Carol's Corner. Hope you enjoyed my reblogging of Tiffany's story. I was dead tired and couldn't have strung two words together for a new blog entry. We're gone till Tuesday on a trip back home. My husband had a class reunion, well it was a whole bunch together which was kind of cool. Tonight we went to a local hotel that had karaoke. It was kind of interesting to watch and we did a little bit of dancing in a really small space. Had a good time though. Just got this dress before we left. Just love all the colors. Calling this, “Fireworks.”
The jewelry set I had for this was absolutely perfect and I made it quite some time ago.
And the FitBit combo was great two and of course I love my Royal Blue shoes.
The above thought is something we need to remember EVERY single day, especially if we are going through a rough patch. There are so many twists and turns in our journeys and life gets in the way many times. I am quite upset with myself for letting an extra 8 pounds find its way back to me. I should have never let it go this far. But now I have to deal with it. Can I just give up? Of course not. That would just be plain stupid, don't you think? One thing I have said all along is that this journey is a never ending one. It never ends,it just changes and has many phases. I guess you would call the phase I am going through is one of not paying close enough attention. Things get out of hand quickly and then we get depressed and do all the wrong things which makes things worse most of the time. As a leader, I hope I can use this to help other people going through the same thing. I think it shows we all go through rough times in our journey no matter who we are. So if you are having a hard time with things just remember, a new beginning is always just around the bend.
Have you ever thought of things in this way? Have you ever thought that going through what you might consider a time of failure in your journey could actually be a good thing, that something positive might come out of it? Maybe this is when we have to step back and ponder things. What is the lesson in what we are going through supposed to be? Is the lesson just for us alone or are we supposed to use and share that lesson with others who might be going through the same exact thing? For me personally, I am sure I am supposed to use this as a teaching and learning experience to others who need help and guidance in their own journey. The blessing for me would be that even though I stumble, I can use my own experience to make a difference in someone else's life and that it doesn't make me a failure, it just makes me human! The next time you find yourself having trouble in a certain area of your journey stop and meditate on the lesson or lessons you need to learn from this experience. What will your blessing be when you get back up from whatever was dragging you down? Is the blessing for you alone or one to be shared with others who are on the same journey?
I'd like to close with this. Make this your mantra whenever you feel like giving up. Remember you are worth it, we're worth it. No matter how many times you stumble that new day is just around around the corner. Grab on to it and let that new day dawn. Till next time, God bless.
