One Day At A Time

Every morning when I awake I am faced with my reality once again. It is filled with hurt, anger, and sometimes tears. These last three months have been the most difficult to understand and they probably will always have my mind wandering. But in the midst of this I remind myself of this one thing, "I deserve to heal."

Everyday, I tell myself "Just make it through today." This morning my scripture of the day read "Do not worry about tomorrow for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Todays trouble is enough for today" - Matthew 6:34. I will take this with me as the days, weeks, and years pass. Use it as a tool to help me understand I am only human and I can only do what I can do. 

In the process of coping I have found it helpful to, this time around, face my reality. I have made a vow to myself not to suppress anything that I may be feeling, make my negative thoughts positive, and simply live. I am living the unimaginable right now but it is my responsibility to make sure that I am okay. 

I have began to refocus my energy into my art, poetry, and hopefully blogging again. If you've ever been in my shoes, and even if you haven't.. please pray for peace and healing for my family. It is difficult enough losing anyone, the load toughens when there's more than one. Pray that my aunt and my cousin's souls are at everlasting rest and that the rest of us carry on with strength we never knew we had. That we find solace in God, knowing that he knew this part of our journeys before we did. Pray that we do not discount the great things that he's done because of the recent loss that we've experienced. And I too will keep each of you in my prayers as well. Praying that you have abundant lives and you not only live but learn.

Love,
Jasmine.
