Weathering The Storm

This morning was tough. My mindset wasn’t in the right place. So when the alarm clock sounded, I got up, but instead of staying up, I went to the couch. Usually, I start writing after my first cup of coffee, but this morning my thoughts were dark and sad, and I felt that I had nothing to share. 

I wallowed in my misery for a few hours and then I got up and decided to start my day. As I was looking for a quote on Pinterest, I came across this quote. It jolted me and I read it several times. It was then that I understood my sadness.

This is a test. Last week, I decided wholeheartedly that I was going to overcome all of my fears and truly pursue my health and fitness business. The last time I decided this, I fell and broke my elbow. And I ended up slowing down because I was healing, then I had surgery and had even more healing time. 

This time the challenge is my rib. It won’t stay in place and it just makes my life so hard. Honestly, I would love to get up each day and feel great. The constant struggle wears me down. But only when my mindset is wrong. When my mindset is in the right place, I can fight the battle and overcome each challenge. 

So today, I decided that I will fight back. I am so close to a breakthrough. I can feel it in my heart. Regardless of what the devil throws at me, I will bow my head and weather the storm. It’s not just about me. If I can get through the challenges, then I can teach others how to overcome them as well. 

Psalm 37:4-5 KJV 
Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

Love and blessings,
