More than Just Getting Through

Or, is that what you are doing?Do you find yourself so tired at the end of the day that you are dragging, yet you don’t feel happy, fulfilled, or even satisfied? Do you already know what will happen tomorrow or, worse, are you so lost that you can’t even think about what may happen tomorrow?

I need you to know that I was that way. I was so worried each night that I couldn’t sleep, which only made the next day worse as I was now tired. The cycle continued until I got sick and had to stop for a few days (or, at least, slow down). Of course, then I was behind from slowing down, so now it was even worse.

This repetition goes on in more lives than I even want to count. I hear this all the time; sometimes, the people telling me don’t even know that it’s their problem; they are too “protected” from it by ignoring it or telling others (and themselves) “it isn’t so” or “it’s not my fault.”

So, what do we do? Well, I had a stroke that reset my life and showed me what was important and how I need to live the rest of my life. It slowed me down and set my priorities more in place. I wouldn’t suggest this method; painful, time-consuming, and you might die (I did).

Short of that, what I know is that nothing can change until you acknowledge there is a problem, and you take a big portion of the responsibility for there being a problem. You see, what I have found out is that, until you take responsibility for the problem and your other actions, nothing can change because you have removed yourself from both the problem and any power to change it.  Let me restate that:  If you are blaming others then you have no power to change anything.

I am not saying to blame yourself for everything (or anything, for that matter). Blame does no one any good; it only does harm. No, what I am saying is to put yourself in the driver’s seat, begin changing what needs to be changed, and welcome the new situation.

Talk to God about it; you can call it prayer, meditation, or whatever makes you feel good. Just know that God looks out for you and is just waiting for you to catch up so you can really make changes and enjoy them!

carly books

I read lots of books, from mythology retellings to literary fiction and I love to reread books from childhood, this is a place to voice my thoughts for fun. I also like to ramble about things such as art or nature every now and again.
