Stay Encouraged!

Life has a way of shifting things around that sometimes make us feel overwhelmed, uncomfortable, and doubtful. Being a wife, mother, employee, counselor, cook, doctor, cab driver, nurse, and so much more can drive you nuts and have you to think that you are in this thing alone.  I know, it's a lot.  I would not be telling the truth if I said "oh no, it's not a lot. You can handle it!"

When life takes a toll on you mentally and physically, it's hard to stay encouraged.  The days get dark, lonely, and long.  It seems as it won't ever end. We have good days.  We also have bad days. But what do we do? We get back up and keep on going.  We can't just look for others to encourage us, we have to encourage ourselves.  Yeah, I know it's easier than done. But we have to do it! We have our child(ren) that looks up to us. We have our spouses that looks up to us. So, we can do it right? RIGHT!!! 

Steps on How to Stay Encouraged
1) Pray to God and ask Him to give you the strength to keep going. 
2) Tell yourself that YOU CAN DO IT
3) Don't be afraid to ask for help around the house. (Remember you are human not super woman.) 
4) Be Courageous! 
5) Love on yourself. 
6) Take a break. (Don't worry, the world is not going to stop because you are taking a break.) 
7) Take thirty minutes to an hour to yourself everyday to keep yourself balance. 
8) Read and only take in positive information. Feeding your mind, body, and spirit with negative things can allow you to go into a mindset that is not comfortable. 
9) Plan a GNO (Girls Night Out) with your closest friends.  Sometimes talking to others and getting it off your chest, can help. They can be your support team. 
10) If you feel like you are falling off track again, stop, take a breath, and go somewhere where you can relax and clear your head. 

Don't give up! You can do it! 

Remember, you are so much stronger than you think!
