I've learned how to deal with the challenges we face by appreciating them more and more. I appreciate them because they are what makes us stronger and reminds us to appreciate what it is that we do have. I have my moments of sadness but they have been so minimal with time and it's all because when I do feel down and stressed about whatever I am going through I instead focus on what I am blessed with. I focus my energy on what I have. And I have something so beautiful and sacred that it overpowers. That gives me the strength, the motivation and most of all the faith to know and believe I have not been forgotten. The almighty knows what he is doing when he sets those challenges in my direction because he knows we will surpass them and take with us a lesson as well as more of an appreciation.
My husband has poured out a very life changing and crucial moment we found ourselves going through in his book "Homeless With A Record Deal", we took that situation and found the blessing of it in the very core. It has made us look at things differently and appreciate so much more.
For some time I have had these dreams of being in slightly violent water with turbulence but never going under, never drowning, these visions in my dreams have transitioned to huge waves that are at least triple my height. The waves seem to come and go and of course I fear drowning. Each time the waves become more familiar to me and seem less threatening, because I somehow figured out how to deal with them and continue to move further up shore. The last dream I had with these waves, it seemed not as high and again less threatening. These words mean so much to me. I hope that the words in this video move you and speak to you as they have done to me.
We need to truly appreciate what we have and appreciate that it could always be more or less. But most importantly we need to never lose faith and know we are going through ( different) obstacles for a reason, a reason that results in beauty and worth.
