Ever look back and say, “WTF?” As time passes, we don’t realize how much we deal with or are going through as we are going through it. Coming out on the other side after having been through so much seems like just another day, when in fact, it is post completion of an obstacle course of trials and tribulations that require intensive mental and emotional gymnastics to conquer with very little time (if any) to process it all.
What better time than now, to look back and say, “Wow, I’m still here. Thank you, God?” Life’s kinks, twists, and turns require a perseverance, resilience, and strength that many of us do not realize we have. Even after it’s over and the dust settles, it may seem surreal. It may seem like it wasn’t you; but lo and behold, it was you amidst the vulnerability, uncertainty, and fear. Despite the adversity, you overcame. You are here now. That is something to feel good about. Way to go, you tough cookie, you!
