My strength did not come from lifting weights. My strength came from lifting myself up when I was knocked down.”– Bob Moore
The last several days have been tough. It has been hard just to find the effort to get out of bed. It would have been oh so easy just to stay there.
The clock seemed like it was going slower than usual, the hours felt like they would never change. Days melted from one into the other.
I give myself mental encouragement chats, sometimes they seem to work, other times they just don’t.
I keep reminding myself I have been through down times before, yet, I somehow found the strength to go through them. Always keeping in mind some of the lessons that I learned doing so.
Today I decided just to sit at my laptop and summoned all that is within me to write this post. Finding the courage to keep my thoughts in some logical order, not the chaotic ones I have been having lately.
So, I remind myself today the words of Rev. Robert Schuller, “Tough times never last, tough people do”!
