Sometimes challenging times expose emotional triggers. Many of us cope with those triggers differently, whether it’s avoidance, overindulgence or even anger.
The coping mechanism I’m most inclined to revert to is overworking. I throw myself so deeply into executing and achieving goals that I check off a list, one achievement after the next. I woke up early as usual, but this time I allowed myself an extended moment where I cried, I prayed, I worshiped, I gave God thanks and I embraced all THE FEELINGS. Then I got up, got dressed, put on a full face of make up with no where to go and adorned myself in my new fav tee from @ceoofmylife_ FAITH + HUSTLE.
Here’s your #nuggetfortoday Faith will take you places hustle can’t. In the midst of many uncertainties, I’m grateful for that assurance. Although, my hustle reaps results, FAITH sustains me, opens up both joy and doors beyond my imagination.
Family, we may not know what the future holds, what “normal” will look like after sheltering in place is over, or even if life as we once knew is even possible.
But we can choose, gratitude.
