May is Mental Health Awareness Month
If you are in a valley, a season of difficulty, a challenge, been the recepient of the misdeeds of others, or COVID has taken a mental toll, know that you can rise from any difficulty if you do not run, do not hide, do not rush, and do not give up.
Use the seasons of suffering and difficulty to not belittle or diminish the hurdle but to learn, grow, and cultivate resilience.
Mindfully experience every emotion and notice what it is telling you, nurture what is spiritually sound and this good for the soul, nurture what is meaningful, silence the naysayers within and outside you, pause but do not quit, identify goals, identify strengths, clarify your values, and to know that you are capable and have been until this point.
Have G.R.I.T (Guts, Resilience, Initiative, Tenacity)!
Our natural instinct may be to silence pain.
We may be tempted to collapse under the negative.
But when you immerse yourself in the difficulty (rather than retreat from it) you will see the beauty and power of hardship because the focus is no longer on the insignificant but on ways to transform that spiritual energy into rebuilding stronger.
The promise is a resilient RISE from ASHES if you do not give up.
Believe in your potential. Have Hope.
Heal. Grow. Be Resilient.
