All of us have been there and have said “I feel so tired today.” Some days, it’s hard to go on when we think about all the things we have to do and all the roles we have to play and all the problems we need to help solve in just one short day.
I know that this struggle is real. But what has saved me everyday of my life is a choice to see my life through a different lens. Along the way of raising four kids I have realized that the only way to find joy in any difficulty is to see the opportunity in that difficulty. Zoom in on the good. See the silver lining. Notice and COUNT the blessings. Realize that everything is a gift, even if sometimes it comes to us wrapped in a very ugly wrapping paper.
And most importantly – that we really only need to be strong one day at a time.
We will always feel exhausted and our future will always look dark if we see our life as a never-ending struggle. Who wants to look forward and feel excited for a life filled with struggle? Not me 🙂
For every thing going wrong, there’s at least three things going right. I like to take my time to notice those. Not always easy, but always worth it.
And I keep reminding myself that all I have to do is simply be strong for one short day at a time.
