Happy Thursday! Today I am switching things up a bit. I’m doing a little “Motivational Sprinkle” to add some happiness to your day. We are going dive in uncut and unfiltered.
I’m going to be very honest with you all. I have been having a rough week balancing my blog, life, and coming up with new fresh ideas.
One thing I don’t allow in my life is depression or discouragement anymore. BUT, I found myself battling with it.
I was stressed the heck out. I’m usually the person hooping and hollering about great things happening for others except myself. I do believe good things will happen for me, it was simply harder for me accept.
Recently, I hit FACE FLAT. I had such a hard reality check in life I had to go back to the drawing board. Y’all, I was literally burnt out.
Now, let me be transparent for a second.
I struggled with depression severely. Now please do not think I claimed that over my life because I did not. Consequently, I had life facing me head on. As a result, I succumbed to my own obstacles instead of being reminded how strong I really am. Rule number one about me, I will never lose.
Next, let’s move on to you. MY AUDIENCE. I had this topic on my heart so much for a specific reason. I have observed so many young people struggle terribly with finances, emotional and spiritual support and LIFE. Let us dissect the root of these things.
Where does most of our pain come from?
- Anger: a strong feeling of annoyance, displeasure, or hostility.
It doesn’t have to be rage with screaming and shouting, but our pain definitely stems from it.
How are our emotions defined?
- Emotion: a natural instinctive state of mind deriving from one’s circumstances, mood, or relationships with
- instinctive or intuitive feeling as distinguished from reasoning or knowledge.
The Limbic System of the brain is our source for emotions. It is made up of several structures which are all located in the cerebral cortex.
So why are so many young children and young adults prone to fighting depression? From my listening, I gathered many have so many “things” they want to accomplish, but the lack in their life no matter what it is plays a huge role.
What I am saying is, they try to juggle this, that, and the third it begins to overwhelm them. Personally, I was juggling work, life at home, missing family, trying to start my blog and whatever else was thrown at me. But some people have another life at home where the household may not be stable or a stability but no means of providing for themselves. I notice young adults try to avoid asking for help until they are posing a risk to themselves. Don’t have too much PRIDE.
Now, I know prayer works because I’m evidence of the result. A lot of things that happened were simply a trick of the enemy. Nothing new. Recently at church, we had a sermon speaking on how our past is always reminding us. Whatever “fear” or “regret” you have from your past, it tends to creep back up and say “REMEMBER.”
I do believe in the times where young children and adults are pushing the hardest, those emotions brew.
I want to be a source of motivation for all but most importantly for people my age. Realizing where my strength lied and how hard I needed to fight for my dreams was evident. Each blockade began falling and I was able to chisel portions off of my body that kept me bound.
Please do not allow yourself to fall flat on your face and remain bound. Take a step back and look at things in a different perspective. Whether you regret a decision from the past or you don’t have the ability to say no, YOU HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR LIFE.
What will it take for you to feel better? Will it be anonymously chatting or having a therapy session? It is perfectly fine seeing a therapist FYI. If you are in need of anything be it a prayer or encouraging words, I want to extend my comments section for questions and comments. Also, submit an inquiry on my form to contact anonymously too.
Together we stand and together we conquer. Those dreams aren’t going to be achieved by themselves!
Go get ’em! I hope a little motivational sprinkle over your day helped.
