You know, I just feel so good when I’m in a creative space.
I’m so proud of myself. I’ve been in overdrive lately. Working two jobs, graduate school which in itself is a LOT of work & I’m actually going to classes 2 nights a week as opposed to doing them online. I’ve still been active in Women of Faith at church & I’ve still managed to update this here blog of mine, posting videos to YouTube & for just for fun, I finished reading a novel while I’ve been working on my own. That’s right. You heard it here first.
I mentioned in one of my YouTube videos this week that I felt like God said to me, “Look for the Light” in this situation. One thing you’ll probably agree with me on, is that it’s easy to get stuck in your situation and feel bad. It takes work to be in a bad situation and still feel good. Like, you have to make an effort to be going through something and decide that you aren’t going to feel bad anymore. I know it’s easier said than done but my sister and I had this conversation and what I found was that it starts with an affirmation. For me, it helps when I physically speak over my situation. It’s not always immediate, but it always helps.
“Someone I loved once gave me a box full of darkness.It took me years to understand that this too, was a gift.” -Mary Oliver, The Uses of Sorrow
This reminds of the power that our words hold. Even coming from a biblical sense. God used words to form our very world. I’m reminded of a post that I wrote a while back. Kind of a love letter I wrote.
“Light thinks it travels faster than anything but it is wrong. No matter how fast light travels, it finds the darkness has always got there first, and is waiting for it.”
― Terry Pratchett, Reaper Man
