Today, I’m grateful I have tools to help me through the hard days. As a single parent of two teenagers, I have days when I realize I still have a lot to learn. Even though my degree is in human development and I graduated at the top of my class, it doesn’t mean I’m not going to have challenges applying everything I know. It doesn’t mean that I’m a failure, even if some of my techniques backfire or fail. I can have moments when I realize that I can do better without attacking myself with a bad mother bat. That is what comes from being on this journey of aligning with love, abundance, and peace.
The hard days are still manageable because the self-abuse from living in the energy of fear, lack, and separation are lessened the longer we stay on the journey. The hard days that may have turned into weeks, months, and years get dwindled down to weeks, days, hours, and moments. It is all because of the tools we get along the way with an open and loving mind. So if today is a hard day for you, wrap yourself in beautiful cloak of love, abundance, and peace——now breathe! Don’t forget the tools you have. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other. If you need help with that, take a walk (in nature if you can).
Today, I commit to embracing my challenges with love, abundance, and peace. Just because we do the daily work to live in the energy of love, abundance, and peace doesn’t mean we won’t have hard days and feelings that challenge us. We aren’t made to be perfect humans. This journey is about learning and growing. If we are doing that, we are on the right track. We are going to get challenged. It is what we do with our challenges that matters. People will judge us, but it is how we judge ourselves that will set us free or keep us prisoner. It is our ability to stop blaming ourselves or others, and take action to change what isn’t serving us.
If we take accountability and responsibility for what is ours, we have the ability to change. The second we place blame, we strip ourselves of our power. WHAT can I do? How can I make a difference in this moment? What steps can I take? When we realize we have the tools by embracing love, abundance, and peace——WE THRIVE!
Even on the days when we don’t know which way is up, we can do something. What is it? You know the answer somewhere deep inside of you. Be still and embrace whatever comes. Sometimes the answer will be to take some down time. Other times we may be singled to get up and move. Each step we take will lead us to the next step, and that is all we need to know in the moment.
For those prayer warriors, pray and then keep doing the best you can in each moment. Breathe, meditate, cry, scream, stand-up, write letters, exercise, eat right, walk, run, communicate, vent, walk away, walk towards, or whatever feels right to you in the moment you are in. The more present we can be, the better our tools will work. NOW, is the time we each are given. That is the only moment we have the power to do something about.
With Love, Abundance, and Peace,
