I have had to draw a lot of lines in the sand lately and it’s been really hard. Saying no, setting limits, making a stand….. and worrying a lot what people might think.
Christmas is such a wonderful time of year but I find the stress of finding the perfect gift often clouds the joy this season brings for people. We all want to be a great gift giver and be the one that gives the best present of all. This year I am reflecting on a wonderful gift I received this year and why it is so special.
Life can take an unexpected turn at any time in any of our lives. The things we are focussing on and doing in this present moment in time, that seem so very important, can all come to a sudden halt.
Our perspective shifts.
Our priorities drastically change and survival mode sets in…..
That’s what happened to me recently and today I take some time to reflect on what has got me through.
I have said them and thought them so many times this week I have lost count! Always striving but then apologising. Having not reached the mark I had set for myself. But then…… three simple words that I really needed to hear arrived on my phone screen ….. and perhaps you need to hear these words today too.
Yes, yes, I do know it is almost march AND I am not normally one for making New Years resolutions either so this Blog post might seem out of place. However, this year we have found ourselves dreaming a bit about what the year ahead might look like. We even made a really cool custom made artwork to help remind us of our plans and I‘d LOVE to tell you about it.
Today I wish to write to the wife out there who is struggling in her marriage. The woman who feels stuck, trapped and hopeless and wondering if the time has come to call it quits and cut her losses and leave. You feel like you have tried everything you can think of. You are emotionally drained and are no longer even sure if you ever were truly in love.
Today I want to say to the struggling, emotionally drained wife that
there is hope.
