A few years ago, I was in a low place. My BFFs—Joan and Paula—noticed something was wrong as we sat down at one of our favorite restaurants. Over teriyaki chicken and hot and sour soup, they asked, “You aren’t yourself. What’s wrong?”
Several years ago, I began most days coaching myself to get up and be the grown-up I was supposed to be. You see, I didn’t want to face the day because it would probably be like all the yesterdays that had come before … dark, hard, and long.
Don’t you just get tired of dealing with the hard stuff? I sure do!
Things like strained relationships, difficult bosses, constant conflict, illness, and financial stress can cause our hands to droop and our knees to wobble. Sometimes we can look over our shoulders and just want to turn back.
