Life is not always easy, fam. It’s not. Sometimes, normal day-to-day activities can seem like too much for you to bear. Trust me, I have been there too many times – and I don’t mean way back in the past, either. I’ve had days like that just this year.
I’m gonna give you two words that are gonna help you when you have days like that. Push through. It may sound cliche, but it’s what you have to do. You have to use whatever strength you have and push through.
I’m gonna give you three things that I do when I feel like I just can’t make it through the day.
Number One: Unplug. Literally unplug. Turn off your phone (or put in on “do not disturb”), turn off your other electronics – even take a nap if you can. Take a few minutes away from life. Don’t lay around and sleep the day away if you can help it, but definitely take some time to unplug and rest. As Anne Lamott stated, “Almost everything will work again if you unplug it for a few minutes, including you.”
Number Two: Think about the other side of “through”. There is something greater coming after whatever it is you’re facing in your rough moments. Remember that NOTHING can work in your life unless it works for your good. Take a moment and think about your goals. Think about what you’re working towards. Allow yourself to feel the coming joy of meeting those goals and hitting those targets. Use your imagination and let that fuel your fire to move forward.
Number Three: Pull on the strength of God. Listen. You’ll never really know how strong God is until you’re weak and need His strength. That’s why the Bible says that His strength is made perfect in our weakness (II Corinthians 12:9). Find a few scriptures about the strength of God and recite them to yourself. You don’t have to have all the strength. God has plenty.
Do all three of these things, and you will discover how much easier it becomes to make up your mind to push through. The actual pushing through may still be hard, but hard things become a lot easier with a made up mind.
I hope this helps! Be sure to save this podcast for a rainy day.
Have an amazing day today. Show love to yourself AND others. Be GREAT! I speak life to you and everyone and everything connected to you! Catch me tomorrow!
