It’s OK to be frustrated, to hurt, to feel pain…then there comes a time when you turn those feelings and emotions around to create lasting, positive change in your life. Don’t be mired in life’s hurts and turmoil because it’s not how we were designed to live. You have to move forward and do things differently. There are people out there who are doing amazing things because they don’t want others to experience what they went through. Today’s pain can be the call to change tomorrow.
A good friend of mine is getting help for depression and other things that are impacting his life. I am proud of my friend for doing this. Depression and other forms of mental illness are serious things that we should never make light of. There are people who suffer in silence. To my friend, I hope you will live in peace as time goes by.
Memories can be great but they can also obscure our view of the current reality of a situation. It’s nice to look back but sometimes it can prevent needed change. Lately I have discovered this truth to be hard but necessary. I just wish pain wasn’t a part of it all.
Hurt people hurt people.
Why do the nicest people have to hurt the most?
A very good question.
My friends there’s always hope and opportunity to get past the cares of your life. You might have problems now but the future doesn’t have to be murky and uncertain. Life has a way of course correcting and providing you opportunities. Hang in there. Uncertain times offer lessons in endurance and knowledge for the road ahead. Live one day at a time.
There are parts of life that are light while others are dark. A balance of shadows and shades. Sometimes darkness can help reveal light. People can find humor in dark situations. Balance comes at times from dark and light. The light of the world is life and love. Seeing what the path has in front of you requires light. Darkness can cloud the soul and keep people in a prison of their own making. Many people will mire themselves in a culture of loathing and pain. Now is the time to turn on the light of life and live again. Let humanity come together and let the brilliance of creativity, love, peace, joy, happiness flood our hearts.

(Friends this is a little crass but its funny and it’s painfully true)
It seems that there have been a lot of people challenged today. In my house we have been tested too on this project we are working on. We are all frustrated and frazzled. All I can say is we are in it together and to hang in there (sorry to be cliche’) but words can sometimes be the only thing you can say or do. Hard work, hard lives, hard times are felt by everyone. Be strong good people.
Whatever has you blue today it doesn’t have to defeat you. Free yourselves for joyous participation in the life of your community to make it and yourself better.
