Things are back on track. I feel like I’m back. The last couple months have been rather dark and dreary. The recesses of my mind have taken me places I’d rather not visit again. The vicious cycle of negativity and depression caught me by the coat tails and it felt like I just couldn’t escape. The things I could control successfully commingled with those I could not. Before you know it, I felt paralyzed. Paralyzed towards taking any action to improve the state of my own affairs.
However, last week I officially turned over a new leaf. I was listening to Jen Hatmaker speak at Willow Creek and something she said rang true with me; a call to action of sorts. Right there in that moment I decided to let go of the weight I was carrying on my shoulders and let God. I have come to terms there are certain things I can control and others which I can not. And for those which I can not, I know they are in better hands now than those of my own.
So this week I dusted off the gym shoes and logged several miles on the elliptical. I washed out an old water bottle and healthily quenched my thirst. I formulated a plan for my professional life so as to allow a better work/life balance. I took a walk hand in hand with my husband along the lakeshore. And let me tell you it all felt so good – taking action over the things in my life which I can control.
So on this beautiful Sunday, let us raise a glass and toast to letting go and letting God!
