My friend Annie at McGuffy’s Reader started a wonderful blog hop called Sparks with the intent to share an inspirational thought each Monday, and she’s invited us to join her. I think this is an awesome idea, and a great way to start the week!
I love the above quote for the simplicity of its message. It is one that over many years has become engrained in my way of thinking. Life happens, sometimes it blindsides us, sometimes it knocks us down, and sometimes it knocks the breath out of us.
Sometimes we think we don’t have the strength or the courage to try again… but we do, that inner resilience is always within us. It was given to us by our Creator. If life is hard and knocks you down, cry, and scream if you need to. Take a little time out to re-center yourself. Reach out for a hand to help you up if you need one.
Then refocus on what is most important to you in your life, and what your true purpose is for being here… and BOUNCE BACK! Take one step at a time if necessary, but don’t give up, don’t ever give up! Refuse to be permanently broken and defeated. Refuse to become an angry, bitter person, weight down by the past. Let it go.
Bounce back… begin again… become an even stronger version of yourself than you were before. You can do it! 🙂
Come and check out Sparks, find your inspiration for the week there, and maybe share something too!
Many of you are familiar with the “Thought for the Day” posts on my Facebook page that carry more messages of hope and encouragement. I post a new one each morning, drop by and check them out. 🙂
