Quite honestly I was hoping to come on here and share some profound motivation, but found none today. My heart was heavy, motivation was minimal, and I was on the verge of tears all day. My husband's route got cancelled tonight so he was able to stay home from work. He played Uno with the boys, and after dinner I sat with him and asked him to pray with me. I cried and told him part of my troubles until the kids interrupted us. Then I cleaned the kitchen, and while doing so I felt the burden of my darkness be lifted. The power of prayer, sharing with your spouse, and letting people know how you are truly feeling is powerful stuff!
I was headed to bed and realized I had yet to share my motivation so I scrolled through my phone and came upon these 2 next to each other.
The quote was something I came across as people kept telling me that the loss of my brother to drugs would be part of my story. Not really a chapter I want to have, but such is life. The selfie was me at a black dress gala where I participated in a fashion show. This was one of the shirts I modeled. I did this the weekend after my brother's funeral. I thought it would be a great distraction to get out, and have some fun. Moments before though I broke down bawling, and second guessing my choice. Anyway, I sucked back the tears and carried on. Sometimes life with throw you lemons, sometimes cupcakes, sometimes bombs, and sometimes giant cups of coffee( I wish!). Through it all, with God's guiding hand, I press on.
We can't let life kick us while we are down, get up, brush off, and move forward.
