I’m not of the belief that prayer alone can generally work miracles. I think in adjunct to other positive endeavors and effort it absolutely tips the scale though and who is to say that it alone can’t or can affect fate. It’s not exactly quantifiable. Right now the serenity prayer is my mantra. I need to focus on the things I can control to regain my self esteem and peace of mind again.
I need to get back to remembering where I am trying to go even if I no longer see the road clearly or know how I will get there.*
The things I want to concentrate on today are: compassion for myself, a healthy diet, rest, exercise and meditation when and if possible and just allowing myself to slow down when I can because I am rebuilding myself after a catastrophic fall and I have lost my bearings.**
I didn’t know I could be here like this again but….I can look at this as an opportunity and not as a nightmare. I can acknowledge that this has been part of me all along….this brokenness. Deep at my core and once and for all I can look this in the eye, tackle it head on and fix the damage so I can break the cycle. So I can walk away the Phoenix in this saga and not the ash.
Wishing you all to be the hero of your own story, with many equally courageous and noteworthy hero’s at your side or when and where you need them. No one should walk their path alone. 🙏🏽💖🌈🌊
*I need to remember my guiding force within and where I felt it was taking me. It’s all a bit lost right now though….I must say.
**Although this may be a challenge with a full and very busy work day ahead of me.
