When Life Knocks You Down

Hey Beautiful Dreamers,

I want to write this blog today to share how I’ve been feeling and maybe it will also help one of you reading this to not feel so alone. Lately I’ve felt paralyzed. I feel like I’m under water and I see the way up but I don’t feel like I have enough strength to make it back to the top. Over these last few months I’ve gone through many different trials and it seems like whenever I get through one trial there’s another one waiting for me at the top. There’s been so much happening in such a short amount of time that it has just left me with this feeling of hopelessness.

If there’s one feeling I don’t let myself want to feel it is hopelessness. I am a fighter. I always have been. I am the person that will keep going into the ring even after getting hit multiple times. As a kid I would semi cringe when I saw the Rocky movies and view the fight scenes. I would just see Rocky get hit over and over again by the other opponent and as a kid I just wanted to yell at him through the television to just not give up.¬†Just like magic though Rocky comes up with this unstoppable strength out of no where and defeats his opponent.

Right now in my life I am having that Rocky moment. I am having a bunch of hits come at me, but I have to decide whether or not I am going to throw in the towel or I am going to keep fighting. As tempting as it has been lately to just want to give up trying that’s just not who I am as a person. This has been an extremely difficult season in my life, but I know that what I’m going through now God is going to use to make me so much more stronger. In the times of my life when I just don’t think I can go on anymore God reminds me that, like Rocky, I have the strength inside of me that is going to get me through any battle that will come my way.

To you reading this…I’m not sure what you are going through right now in your life. You may be feeling like me right now and you are just not sure how you are going to get through this season of your life, but I am here to tell you that you can and you will. I promise you that you have the strength inside of you right now to get through those hardships. It’s normal to feel down and scared sometimes in your life, but don’t let those feelings stop you. You are a fighter and will overcome whatever this life has to throw at you. We all have our own obstacles we are going through right now, but we will get through this difficult season together. If you feel like you have no one in your life cheering you on to make it through your hardships know that I am the person outside the ring telling you that you can do it. We are going to get through these hardships no matter what.

Until next time thank you for reading dreamers,
