Homeschooling and Medieval Living

Get a Grip

on January 7, 2013

From the Daily Compass:

Some situations make it very difficult to hold on. We might feel like we’re clinging to the icy side of a mountain as we deal with unemployment, illness, divorce, parenting issues, or any of countless other seemingly insurmountable problems.  Yet, one way or another, however slippery the slope, we manage to keep moving on our journeys.

What tools help you to hold on when the going get s rough?

There are many times when I feel so overwhelmed. I do have financial woes and so many other things. When I feel that way, I usually turn to reading, journaling/blogging, my family, or my best friend J. She really helps. But she is just so busy lately. Usually, I end up crying myself to sleep. I really miss those times when I could go to her whenever I wanted to. I used to go to an SCA event or go do something with THEA. But, I no longer have the gas money to go anywhere by work. I just have to try not to think about things. I have my cats, but they just aren’t the same. I guess in the end, there is really just me. I meditate and that seems to help a bit. In this new year, I would like to add the Church of the Larger Fellowship to that support list. When I was going to First Jeff, I felt so loved and like I was part of something bigger than myself. I really miss it. I also missed the online worship service yesterday. I was spending time with my family. So, I plan to attend this morning. There is another service at 8 am today. I got up early so that I could be part of it. I can’t wait. I hope I can find that love, warmth and support again. It really does feel nice.
