Look after Yourself Friday

Act like today is all you GOT!

This morning I chose to rise up with a smile because today is all we have!

When I went to bed last night, my nerves were a wreck. I felt like I couldn’t take as deep of a breath as I needed. I switched from being hot to cold, sad to happy, and in the end, depressed. I tried hard to hold myself together, but I felt like I was losing a good fight. So I closed my eyes and just prayed. It was an intimate conversation between my God and me.

He gave me what I needed to get through the night. I felt his presence with me all night. I felt like a 5-year-old who had just had a traumatic experience and needed to be in her father’s arms. 

A type of Father that makes you feel safe when he is near. No one can touch you and harm you.

I slept like a baby, and when I woke up, I felt like sunshine. When I rose, I didn’t need to open my blinds and feel the warm air hitting my skin. As I lifted my window, I didn’t need to smell fresh life— waking up was enough. I was enough!

It has been quite some time since I felt like this. I slowly feel myself coming back. I don’t know what tomorrow will hold, and for the first time, I don’t care. The only thing that I’m concerned about is today. This moment is mine, and I’m grateful for that.

No matter who you are or what may be heavy on your spirit, I pray you to get up. Find peace because when you find peace, hope and joy are around the corner.

So get up and act like today is all we got!

How are you looking after yourself today?

You could’ve chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  2. THAT is the question: “How are you looking after yourself today?” I wish I had an universal answer, but each day is so different, isn’t it? Still I’ll say that I got up, decided to be kind to myself and other people, and will do my best to let Karma take care of the other stuff.
