This is something that happens at some point, for everyone.
When life just sucks the big wienie, how are you supposed to keep going, stay the path and do the job?
When Life Just Sucks
When Life Just Sucks
It is something we are all dealing with, with the tragedy at the Boston Marathon, the horrible explosion in Texas, shootings in schools, our soldiers still so far from home, our nation’s economy, a President no one seems to trust and so many more things happening, some in our own homes….
What do you do to keep going when life just sucks?
What do you do if you loose someone dear to you?
Here is a fact. Sometimes, when life just sucks, you are doing all you can to breathe in and out.
That is O.K.
Monday Motivation is supposed to get you moving! You may be thinking…
No, not really.
Or at least, that isn’t all it is.
Monday Motivation, the idea that created it, … is about letting you know you are not alone and that what you are doing is (or will) making a difference.
It is about not giving up or being drug down by nay-sayers.
It is about helping you, stay the path, which ever path you are on.
Sometimes, when life just sucks, it really is all you can do, to breathe.
To function, at whatever levels are possible, and sometimes they aren’t very high.
Is that bad? Is that wrong? Lazy? Not understood?
Breathe. In and out.
Until you can do more.
Then give yourself a break.
Breathe a little more.
The path, the goal, the dream… it will be there, when you are ready.
“While we are mourning the loss of our friend, others are rejoicing to meet him behind the veil.” ~John Taylor
“When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” ~Kahlil Gibran
People: you, me, him, her… we all have strong feelings about the things that matter to each of us.
When you are dealing with a terrible pain or loss, sometimes you need to just take some time.
It is different for each of us.
Grief has to be felt and we all deal with different griefs and loss in different ways.
There are no rules to it, there is no time period when you will feel like yourself again.
There is no right or wrong way for you to feel.
“Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o’er-fraught heart and bids it break.” ~William Shakespeare
“Let your tears flow and where they go, let your sorrows follow.” ~Dodinsky
Some people do better dealing with horrible, by staying busy.
Some people, would like to talk about what has happened.
There is no right and wrong, there is only what and how you feel.
Most only need to know that you are there to listen, when they are ready to talk.
I am not going to claim that I know how to give you advice about this, only that I care.
The only thing I do know is that everyone grieves differently.
It doesn’t mean they don’t care, as much as it doesn’t mean they care too much.
All it means is that it happens.
Eventually or by a terrible unexpected accident that no one could foresee, sometimes we loose others that mean the world to us.
“Where there is anger, there is always pain underneath.” ~Eckhart Tolle
“God gave us memories that we might have roses in December.” ~J.M. Barrie
Please don’t think you are alone.
Please don’t think someone may not care how badly you hurt.
Someone, anyone, may not know how you feel, exactly, but you are not alone and you are cared about.
You are that important too.
I just want you to know, it’s ok.
Today, you should know that it is ok to just do what it takes to get through the next minute when you need to grieve.
Sometimes, you may need help finding the light again.
Please don’t be afraid to ask someone for help.
There are so many people, waiting, to be asked.
If this post may offer any comfort to someone, please pass it on.
