Easier Said Than Done

December 26, 2009

During difficult times we are encouraged to focus on the good. Count your the blessings. Look on the bright side. Remember that time heals all wounds.

As true as these encouragements may be, there are moments when they are of little or no comfort. At these times, the anguish of myriad small realizations intrudes upon us, and we are undone. In these moments, breathing is an accomplishment.

At these times, we must focus on the tiny moment in which we find ourselves...and survive it.

So, so, very, very true! I like this post.

Lately, upon waking I try to remember to start the day with an acknowledgment of thanks followed with a short prayer "thy will be done" and seemingly a sense of clarity sometimes prevails fleetingly or lasting throughout the day.

It helps me to keep in mind that, as my friend, Veronka, says, "No matter what's going on at the moment, it will be different next week." Gratitude and reality checks help, too. Thanks, Anonymous.
