it’s a hard knock life for us… February 12, 2009

it’s no secret that lots of people are experiencing hardship, heartbreak, heartache or even if just for the moment…a hard knock life.  so whaddayado when the going is tough?  i hate to sound cliche, but, even through the punches, blows, tears and such, you have to move through it while you’re in it.  hear me clearly, even as you’re feeling like crap…you’ve gotta keep it moving man! how?  well, if you’re looking for a job after losing one, freshen up your resume, put on your sunday’s best and of course your good shoes and use the nervous energy that you may have to fuel your search for new opportunities.  might be easier said than done these days considering the looking is a bit harder than it used to be. 

for those of you that were probably in a not so fun situation at your job,  this may have been one of the best things to happen to you.  huh? yes, sometimes being pushed out the door really opens your eyes and pushes you to go after what you’ve been wanting to do all along.  go forth and do what fuels you and pursue what you are or once were passionate about and that you were born to do. 

can you imagine someone handing you your pink slip and saying to you – “go towards your destiny, go do what fuels you”.  i know that it does not happen quite like that.  most times when you’re being handed a pink slip the only word you may hear is “go”.  sometimes you may have a dream, vision, innovative ideas/creativity, etc. in your heart and you are discouraged by inhibiting words of others.  for this i say listen to your own voice  especially if you have a gut feeling about it

what do you like to do? what are you good at? what gets you fired up? this is no time to be scared of life and what you have to offer.

don’t ever stop holding out hope no matter what situation you may find yourself in.  though i’m not always successful at it,  i’ve continually searched for the true way of how to move through life with peace even in the midst of turmoil.  is it possible?  i’m telling you, it really is.  there is a scripture that i constantly keep in mind:  philippians 4:11 – “i am not saying this because i am in need, for i have learned to be content whatever the circumstances”  (this deserves further discussing.  in the meantime, please know that in need or in want in good or in bad…there is an inner peace that you can have)

this does not mean that you ignore your feelings.  be sure to allow yourself to feel whatever it is that you’re feeling – even while you’re pushing forward with a smile or with tears.  you’re allowed to have feelings without shame and with hope.

and this is for you…just because!
