Great Ra’sing Readers! How was your weekend? Hopefully it was productive. Let’s abundant our rising to have an amazing day. May the work we do be an answer to our prayers. Express your gratitude to your higher power for the things you have in your life. I thank you for following and reading my blogs. Your support is greatly appreciated.
Everyday we are faced with challenges whether they are easy or difficult. The most challenging thing a person can go through is picking up the pieces of the puzzle after experiencing a tragedy. Such tragedies are; loss of employment, divorce, car accident, death of a child, parent, close friend, family members, etc. And most tragedies are traumatizing. It’s as if one’s life has come to a halt. One wonders how can they move on in life as if everything is okay.
One may become depressed, unable to live life abundantly. For them life has become a battlefield within themselves to either overcome or succumb to the pain. Society have this belief to prescribe medication to numb the pain instead of encouraging to feel and acknowledge the pain.
To acknowledge the pain, one must be determined to take back their power to live one day at a time. First acknowledge the pain. Then breathe as many times as you need until you are okay. That’s a huge step to accomplish. I’m proud of you. I know it wasn’t easy, but at least you got the hard part out the way. Keep going you can break through this! How did it make you feel? It’s totally normal to feel different emotions, some you may have not recognize. What matters is you’re expressing how it made you feel. Now the key is to reciprocate it. How? Let me explain. Let’s say you’re angry and you feel like hitting something. Get a pillow or a punching bag and give it your all. Release your anger. It’s something constructive, safe, therapeutic, and no one’s getting hurt. It feels good to let it out in a way you want to let it out. You are on the way to healing! Keep going!
Take time to acknowledge how it affected your life. Now are there any lessons derived from the pain? This part may call for introspection of your interaction with whoever or even yourself. You may have to break some habits to create healthy ones. Breaking old habits can be difficult. But you can do it by removing yourself from places, people, and things that will cause you to relapse. And it’s okay if you relapsed, because from there you’ll recognize your triggers. It may take a few times of falling before you gain the strength you need to kick the old habit to the curb. All that matters is you getting back up to conquer the day.
You gain your strength and power to live each day you get through. Continue to be in the moment using your five senses. Pray, meditate, go for a walk/swim and exercise to help you stay the course. Now there will be times you just want to stay in bed and not do anything. And that’s okay. It’s apart of self care. You may need to rest. Take all the time you need whether that be 30 minutes, an hour, or more. Only you know what you need.
Until next time my readers, take steps to take back your power. They say turn pain into passion. It’s easier said than done when one hasn’t got through the pain.
