Exhausted, a word that perfectly define the woman you can see in front of the mirror right now. Full mind, heavy heart and teary eyes, combinations that makes you believe that nobody will ever understand and that talking to anybody wouldn’t help.

You know that this is not just about you being emotional. There are moments when you start to ask yourself what did you do to deserve this kind of feeling. By then you will realize that life is scaring the human in you. Endless trials are what you’re facing similar to how vast the ocean is. Scary for you don’t know if  a horizon waiting for you out there.

Life is a mystery. Nobody knows what it will bring yet it teaches us to stay strong amidst the odds. Life as we know it does not always gives us lemons worthy for a glass of lemonade. In fact most lessons come as a result of our mistake, and if you are lucky it will be from a hard one. Imagine a situation wherein the source of your courage turns its back on you just when you needed them the most? Or melancholic as it may feel, when somebody is gone for good and for peace.

While you are busy reading this article, try mo rin makinig sa episode namin:

Relying on somebody is good but strengthening yourself is way better. Know that you are a unique and special in many different ways and your potential is limited only by your mind. How wonderful it would be looking at a woman of visible inner strength and courage. Remember tough times don’t last but a full-spirited woman does.

On the other side although people and circumstances disappoint you most of the time, know that these are fleeting and will pass away long before you expected it. There are unfathomable reasons why things happen may it be good or bad, far from what we have in mind. If dwelling on the negative experience makes you feel motivated and courageous, pursue it. If looking on the brighter side even with shadows of uncertainties will make you comfortable so be it. We don’t get to choose our consequences but we have the power to rethink our options. Artistically dramatic as it may sound, life isn’t to be understood, it’s meant to be lived.

Also bare in mind that you are not alone in this struggle, someone bigger than your challenges are looking out for you to rely on him. You may not see him nor understand his ways most of the time, yet He knows the bigger picture. He has plans for your own good, to give you life, a future, and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11). Take heart my dear.
