Enlightenment Monday’s : Have Faith And Stay The Course

A day late and a dollar short. Monday is almost over and I am just now sitting down to write out all the feels from last week…

This past week wrapped up my month to be still and to be honest, I am sad it has come to an end. I feel like for the first time in years I have learned so much – about myself as a woman, wife, and mother. I finally feel I have found my path and a renewed sense of spiritual well-being.

Although, I am not sad to see this particular week come to a close. For many reasons, it was by far the most challenging. While this week was filled with obstacles, I feel it offered me the most growth and development.

3 Things I Learned From My Last Week Of Being Still

  1. Having Faith is hard. Beyond hard. There is simply no other way to describe it. It’s so much easier when there are no obstacles, no challenges. I suppose that is the point of faith – learning to “keep the faith” through our struggles. Its a constant work in progress and I am not sure it gets easier with each new challenge, but I think that is how we continue to grow.
  2. My gratitude journal is a necessity. Now that I have one, I realize I can’t live without it. I have to write in it at least a few times a week. It makes me feel centered or more balanced, if that makes sense? Positivity is so much easier keep when you have to think about it and write it down. It gives me a sense of peace.
  3. No matter the challenges, stay the course. Even though this past week has been filled with challenges, I can’t let it side track me. I have goal I want to accomplish for 2017 and I cannot let life get in the way of that. There will always be something else going on, things I cannot always control, but I can’t allow it to stop me from accomplishing my goals.

June was such an inspiring month, despite the trails. Honestly, I feel like I want to keep the momentum going. So that is just what I am going to do! I am going to continue having faith and staying the course. There is nothing better!
