One of my favorite sayings of all time is “That which does not kill you makes you stronger.”
When I think about this saying, it reminds me to stand strong when tested and that every bad situation is an opportunity for you to turn the situation around if God allows you to live to see another day. However, let me let you in on a little secret: Life comes with challenges, and thinking that you can click your heels together like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz and wish yourself back home isn’t the way it happens.
I have learned that you have to pray hard, work harder and seek help from qualified and helpful individuals when you can’t sort things out for yourself. It’s ok to talk things over with professionals where there’s NO JUDGEMENT. Asking for help when you need it takes a lot of courage and shows that you want to improve your life circumstances for the better. COURAGE is that inner voice that says to you, “I will try again TOMORROW” when in actuality you really just want to throw in the towel. Even after fall and failing, you can get back up again, and that’s what it takes to achieve your wildest dreams and live your best life. If at first you don’t succeed you try and try again until you see light at the end of the tunnel.
Difficult roads sometime lead to beautiful destinations. Stay the course. God has a purpose for your pain, a reason for your struggle, and a gift for your FAITHFULNESS.
NEVER GIVE UP! STAY FOCUSED, STAY POSITIVE, AND STAY STRONG…remember “IT’S WORTH TALKING ABOUT.”
