Life ever throw you a huge curve ball? I mean one that was so huge you wonder it’s possible you didn’t see it coming! Well this week that happened to me. It was unexpected , unwanted and it completely knocked the wind out of me. One day I was providing encouragement and navigating getting back to work, and the next thing I know I’m paralyzed in my emotions about a situation out of my control. It’s not one of those situations I can avoid either. I have to face it and find a way to cope in the process. I’m still figuring out how I’m going deal as I walk through this next season, but I’m convincing myself I can do it with each moment. I believe in the things I say, the words I post. I believe that anxiety and depression don’t get to sit in the drivers seat no matter what life throws my way. So what and I going to do? I’m going to breathe in and out. I’m going to remind myself to smile and enjoy all the moments I can. I’m going to love even harder. Why? Because I can! If life has thrown you a curve ball, and you’re trying to catch your breath, you’re not alone. There’s hope!
