I just got back from a 4 day vacation in which we stayed in a very quiet log cabin in the Rocky Mountains. You would think I would be renewed and rested. So why am I feeling so weary?
I should feel rejuvenated. But I am not.
I feel tired. The anxiety monster is showing his face again. I am feeling weary.
Big changes at work. Our company has a new owner, we will merge with another, then become a whole new company. Unsure what my role is, what any of our roles will be. Good or bad, that remains to be seen.
School is starting up again. Back to the grind. Back to days of homework, drama, and juggling schedules…schedules I am not even sure of yet. The planner in me is about to freak out.
How do any of us get out of that weary funk?
- Start by taking it one day at a time. Tomorrow is a new day.
- Repeat, repeat, repeat, “This is just a moment. It won’t last forever.”
- Pray. Prayer never hurts. Matthew 11:28-30
- Find the silver lining of the situation. Dig deep if you have too.
- Look around. Find others that also need encouragement in their weariness. Lift them up.
While focusing on others problems, I see my own aren’t as bad as I think or feel they are. I recently discovered a battle of one of Alex’s friends, Isabella. This young woman is fighting back against a severe peanut allergy. We are talking about life and death tree nut allergies here. Her mom, Erin, is writing about the journey her family is on to break Isabella from the deadly peanut prison. If you or someone you love has a severe tree nut allergy I urge you to read more at Isabella’s Prison Break. She is a Small Seed, making change right where she is in life.
