I am a night owl! I LOVE the darkness and the quiet when the world is asleep. It's peaceful and my inner introvert loves to revel in it! However, if I am struggling emotionally, it's also when I tend to give into the flood of feelings that I have been holding at bay during the daylight hours!
Those are the moments I can tend to let my thoughts run wild, where I throw pity parties, and give in to fear. I have had to wake my husband up more times than I can count to help me get a grip!
Sometimes these are moments and sometimes these are days, weeks, or years. Life can dish out some terribly hard circumstances and learning to cope in a healthy way during and after can be challenging.
We have been focusing on healing and internal transformation this past month in our group and I have been so encouraged hearing the stories of these awesome women and watching them choose to step outside their comfort zone to overcome! They make me want to brave, to face my fears head on, to practice my strength of mind in the dark hours and believe the truth. Their vulnerability helps me put my own circumstances in perspective, to take the good with the bad, and to allow it all to strengthen me further.
Healing is a choice! The sun rises but we have to go out to meet it.
