I used to always say “when it rains it pours,” and I haven’t come to find that to be incorrect, but I’ve wondered a lot more lately if when things get bad maybe they get worse because of how focused we are on the negative. Maybe we are in a sense welcoming more bad because we’ve mentally accepted that it’s going to get worse. If you’re familiar with the law of attraction this isn’t a new idea to you. There are times I feel that I completely agree with this idea and other times it seems a little far fetched. .
Being in times of immense emotional, physical, and mental difficulty cause my mind to wander and many things come into question. One being, why are we all sick right now? This last week has been hard on so many levels. I have cried a lot, laughed a little, I’ve faced the depths of my love for another in a way that I can only compare to the love you feel when you hold your newborn child for the first time, and this difficult path is only beginning. So I have to ask myself; why are we sick? Is it merely exhaustion or have I somehow welcomed this in? I don’t have an answer right now, just a question. Now is time to focus on wellness for my family. We need our strength for what’s ahead. .
You friends and family have been amazing through this hard time, and the prayers of those who do and do not know us has been very appreciated. I appreciate you all respecting our privacy and bearing with me as we face some pretty heavy challenges. I do believe that these questions I’ve raised are a sign that I need to start shifting my perspective. I need to step back a little and find a way to look for a positive point of view here. I don’t know how yet, but I have to try. I don’t have all the answers, but I will never stop seeking them. .
