Dear God | A Healing Prayer Through Pain and Difficult Times

Sometimes it takes a little voice to remind you things will work out.

Finding yourself through pain can be difficult. Life tends to grab us by the collar when we least expect it. When we are hurt we internalize the pain and sometimes view the situation as a reflection of who we are. However in reality, circumstances are at times out of out control and although you may do everything right, things may still end undesirably.

October was a tough month for me, probably one of the most difficult times I have experienced. Without going into details, it seemed like there was one mishap after another from the first week of the month to the last.

Usually during difficult times I am the person ensuring everything and everyone is okay. I hold back my emotions until the dust has settled. This time was different. I was a complete mess.

I felt like crumbling at any given moment and the air around me felt dense, I literally felt like I was suffocating. Click To Tweet

In a time of hurt and despair it is easy to absorb your emotions and believe in a way you deserve to hurt. For the first time in my life, I knew I didn’t deserve to hurt, but allowed myself to feel every bit of pain. This time was different, I realized I was no superwoman and I needed a healing prayer. My husband was who I needed the most. 

How I Coped and My Healing Prayer

The first thing I did was allowed myself to vulnerable and from there the healing began. 

  • I allowed myself to cry
  • I allowed myself to feel sad
  • I allowed myself to be alone
  • I allowed myself to be surrounded with love
  • I mentally blocked out negative thoughts
  • Most importantly I took time to get to know me 

This process helped me come to terms with things and find acceptance. I know now that in order for me to  properly heal from anything that is causing me emotional hurt, I must first grieve. 

Read my open prayer to God. If you are going through something no matter how big or small, allow yourself to emotionally heal, the world will not stop if you do! Click To Tweet

Just remember it is okay to NOT be okay, but remember things will get easier and better as you live through your moments.

#NaBloPoMo: I’m No Mrs. Fix It or Mom the Builder

What was the last thing you fixed or built?

NaBloPoMo November 2015 time
Mrs. Fix it to the rescue! I think NOT. These #NaBloPoMo prompts are driving me insane. I thought that having a prompt would be make it easier to blog every day, but honestly it is only making me think. (Queues laugh). I mean seriously, the last thing I fixed or built? I have no idea. Does building a castle or truck out of Mega Bloks count for anything?  Sorry I am not a fixer or a builder. I have unclogged the toilet a time or two, but I am definitely not Mom the Builder.

Dear Janelle, A Letter to My Younger Self

letters-I’ve been married for four months now and during these short four months I’ve learned a lot about myself. I’ve also learned to tame some things about myself. I once was a very soft spoken person.  During my twenties I found myself in friendships that were one sided and a relationship that was meaningless. Through those experiences I found my voice. I learned to speak up where it was needed and I not to take crap from anyone.
