We all got them!!!
Well I got a few of them and I am going to be brave and share them with you. Perhaps I will be able to overcome them by being candid.
Struggle #1 – I struggle with my weight.!!! I have always been curvy and don’t get me wrong I LUV ‘EM CURVES but since having my son I have yet to go back to my pre pregnancy weight. Just when I thought that I would start doing some hardcore exercise .. I found out that I was expecting again!!!!!! New weight on top of the old weight. #FixitJesus
Struggle # 2 –I struggle with showing emotions… worrrddd!!!! I absolutely can’t deal with emotional displays of affection, affirmation and the like. How strange must I be? I know you love me, but you don’t necessarily have to say it much. Also, don’t try to hug me that’s not appreciated…. But why??
Goal: One Word – GOD!! I can’t do this on my own!
Struggle # 3 – I struggle with staying in the moment. Mid conversation, mid reading, mid anything-that-deserves-full-attention, I sometimes just zone out. It’s not intentional, and it’s not that the other party or the activity I am engaged in is boring (at least not ALL the time), but random thoughts would just enter my mind and before I know it, my attention has gone towards that thought. When this happens, there is an obvious lapse in the conversation and this is not cool at all.
Goal: The thoughts are unavoidable, but I have to mentally try to not focus on them. I also see it this way, my MIND is NOT drifting to other thoughts, but rather other thought are drifting INTO my mind. Once that happens, I just quickly analyze the thought and determine whether to store or delete the said thought…. sounds strange? but so far it’s been working.
Struggle # 4 Learning to trust God with everything. Nothing is too small or insignificant for Him to help with. Everyday I need him more and more and everyday he chips off some area that needs fixing. I know that God can do anything but sometimes I struggle with believing that he will do it FOR ME.
Just sharing this post, is the conquering of a struggle because these are not things I would normally share or talk about. Kudos to me!
Well, that’s some of what I struggle with, folks. What about you? What do you struggle with? How do you cope, and how successful are your coping strategies? Let me know in the comments! Oh, and if you’ve got any suggestions for my struggles, I’m all ears!
