Turning your shame into strength

Advertisements

Seasons come and go. Some we enjoy while the others we endure; Still no season lasts forever. Our attitude and altitude differ in each season.There are times when we are high from feelings of satisfaction and at other times so low and depressed by our unmet expectations.

Despite the season, you are in stopping is not an option. We keep moving and refuse to be stuck. Unfortunately, some don’t change when the season change they hang on remaining stagnant with no progress.

All is left are stories of the good old days.. .. when I was young

….when I had money

……when my so or so was alive

…..oh when I was working

Ok, so you went through a shift in life things changed, and it’s not what you anticipated. Yeah me too plus a million other people. Remaining stuck is not a must, but it’s a choice. Imagine still wearing summer clothes while winter comes and vis verse. The suffering would be unbearable, yet it is self-inflicted.

Stop blaming people for the change in seasons of life. Stop being angry with God for the unmet expectations. Stop blaming yourself for not following your premonition.

Accept when seasons change we change too. Learn and adapt to the discipline of each season. Above all remain connected to the author of all seasons.

I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. Sometimes I wonder, 'if I'd become everything I wanted as a girl, Would I be better than this or caught up in a different whirl?' I close my eyes and hear the voices of those who look up to me, The hopeful eyes in their pictures.....I think I can see what they see, I want to wake up one morning and see the people I care about happy. I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. I pretend I'm not hurt even when I am, 'Cause when fighting ain't an option,the least we can do is keep calm. There're times when I feel terribly overwhelmed, But bless everything through which I've helmed, There's been God, there's been you, to pull me through. I oft'n worry that the things I so believe in may not be true, And you can trust me to cry at the idea of failing in what I set out to do. I'm a perfectionist, I work the details to the dots in the i's And I believe if we fall and keep breathing we can always arise. I understand that it's hard to please everyone, But if I could, there's nothing I'd want more than to see a smile on the face of every man. I believe and so say everyone deserves a second chance, I judge not...at least never at first glance. I dream of the day when I can look at my life and say 'this is where I wanted to be. I have, I do, I always will try the best in everyone to see, And I hope at the end of my life, I will not have left a trail of broken hearts behind me.
