Coming Out of a Funk

These past few days have been a little trying. I'm hanging in there, though. Tomorrow I finish one of my summer classes! :)

I've just been in a funk. Sometimes I get disappointed that I can only sit up so long or walk so far. Then, people who mean well say something about it, which doesn't help matters.

I don't stay like this for long, though because I am quickly reminded of how far I've come. A few years ago, I couldn't go to church at all because of how much pain I was in. Now, I get to go to one service a week and help out with the Media and Publications team on another night of the week! I can't tell you how much it blesses me to be around my church family.

I'm writing this to say, Quit letting your mind tell you how much of a failure you are! (This is for me, too). If you are depressed and downtrodden, you can't do everything God wants you to do.

Wake up in the morning and say:

Today is going to be a good day

I believe that God has given me everything I need to be a success

I refuse to let negativity get me down

I have a joy inside of me that I can't contain

I love myself

That love spills over to those around me

Now,You have to be smiling after reading that!
