I believe in God and call myself spiritual, but not religious. I wish I had unwavering faith, but the reality is I question God a lot.
Have you tried to meditate, only to find your self easily distracted?
Have you seen the movie Finding Dory? If not, you really should.
One central theme that tugged at my heart was to just keep swimming at all costs. You know why? Well plain and simple:
Wow. What a powerful thought. You know, sometimes we have to embrace those negative memories with the same open arms in which we embrace the good memories. Those bad memories through the more troublesome times in our lives, those stepping stones we had to trudge over are all apart of a foundation of faith in which when faced with an equally onerous situation – we can say to ourselves, “Been here – done that. I will excel, I will not fail.”
If we are faced in a situation that we put ourselves in, the key seek out the lesson taught to us in those darker times and be sure not to repeat in the future. Although we will continually experience peaks and valleys in our lives, we do not have to experience the same valleys over and over again …
If we had no control over some fate we suffered, let us still have quiet reflection on the lesson the universe was trying to teach us. For the universe then expects great thing of us and had to make us stronger.
Have faith and believe in yourself if going through a tough time. It will get better. Just keep swimming.
