|Hi, gangSome days there seems to be a theme in the things you read, almost as if your mind and heart are being escorted by the Spirit down a particular gallery of thought.
You’ve found yourself pinned by tough circumstances, life experiences that seem to have a submission hold on your soul. We all share that. It’s rough and can easily morph into raw defeat.
It’s not the experiences that whip us; it’s our willingness to let them do it. This is an encouraging word from out here at home on the range: you don’t have to let any hard time or tough circumstance keep you down. It doesn’t matter what’s happened, or how often. The answers lie within you, and the starting point is where your attitudes gather.
It takes courage to take an honest look at oneself, recognize where changes need to be made, and be bold enough to get up again and get at it. It really is up to you.
B J Gallagher writes primarily for women but her prose and poetry are universal in application. See what you think of this brand new little movie from Simple Truths. – Dan
