It Is Only Temporary

The past few weeks have been tough. One problem piles on top of another. I feel like I’m reaching a breaking point. It has to stop. There has to be a reason, something I can do that will turn this around.

My mom passed away. In addition to the emotions of losing her suddenly, this has significantly depleted my savings with plane tickets, the funeral and other unexpected expenses. My property taxes doubled dipping into another financial resource. Things at work have been busier than usual and because I haven’t been on top of things like I usually am we are facing innumerable issues that could have been avoided. I haven’t caused them, but under normal circumstances I would have prevented them.

On and on things pile up.

The Halloween party I planned for months was postponed because I was away taking care of things after my mom passed. It was moved to a weekend that wasn’t just windier than normal but it happened on a day we had a tornado touch down not far from my house. This forced the haunted maze I had built outside to be recreated indoors.

There’s more. It keeps going but you get the idea.

I believe in the law of attraction….at least to an extent and so I believe that although I couldn’t have done anything about my mom passing or the tornado many other problems are being attracted to me because of something I’m doing or thinking. I’m honestly trying to correct this.

And yet it piles on. The load is getting to be more than I can carry.

At yoga Monday night the instructor said something repeatedly that she has never said before. “However you are feeling, it is temporary. It will pass.”. I can’t help but feel this is something I need to hear….that I need to remind myself that what is happening right now in my life is temporary. These problems I am facing will pass.

I can do this!

  1. Hang in there…this too shall pass. Sometimes when things are thrown at you from different directions I think it’s a message to stay still and let it all happen. A quiet acceptance, a chance to take a deep breath and not doing anything to change what is happening. Feel better πŸ’•

  2. So sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom, Dee!! This among all the other things you have spinning around you must surely make you feel like you are living in a storm. I so agree with your Yoga instructor, the storm will pass and the sun will shine again and things will get back to a semblance of normal. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!!

  3. Dee, I truly can relate. I am sorry to hear it. I lost my mom in 2005, my best friend and a person that was there for me. A friend ask me once how she was doing my reply was better than yesterday and I missed her very much. Today I talk to her. Stay strong lady stay active.
