I was scared when I started this Journey.
I starred at the steering wheel, then the road and the cars that passed by. I FROZE.
‘What was I thinking?’ I thought to myself.
‘Driving’? I shouted.
I closed my eyes, opened them and looked up at the sky, starring at nothing in particular.
‘Oh Em Gee’! Holding my chest as I exclaimed.
‘This is going to be to much for me’. I got down from the car.
I got to my sidewalk, entered the Garage,
The garage leads to the kitchen.
I turned the knob,
As I turned the knob, I took some deep breaths (4 times),
I entered the Kitchen’
What I saw made me gasp, ‘Oh My Gosh’…
(to be continued).

First, I would like to ask ‘How you are doing?’ Weird! Am I right? Lol. It is not really a bad question. (Per Say).
Let us talk about the word STRUGGLE. “Everyone has a story behind each struggle in life.
This is for those who are struggling.
I HEAR YOU.
It could be anything you are struggling with.
May I say to say this to you, ‘YES! YOU! ‘
The struggle has been and the struggle will always continue.
YES, I know. It is not easy.
Come to think of it. What is?
- The struggles of being RICH
- Being POOR
- Struggles of the NERDS
- Of Weight Loss
- Financial Struggles
- Parental Struggles
- Mental Struggles
- Family Struggles
- Health Struggles
- Addiction Struggles
- Marital Struggles and the list goes on.
But, (there is a BIG ‘BUT’)
It depends on how well you face your struggles. PERIOD.
It is either you take control of the situation by looking for solutions OR
you acknowledge that you are a BIG LOSER and you can’t face your struggles.
WHY? Why would you say to yourself?‘ I am tired. I can’t go on.’
WHY? Why would you want to give up?
What about your loved ones (whoever they are)?
Those that have been by your side through thick and thin.
Do you think of them? OR you just think of yourself all the time and say,
‘How can I go on? It is easier if I give up.’
OKAY. Let us take a step back.
And take a very deep breathe in (AUMMMMMMM) and then out.
Let us think this through. If you give up. Then what?
Is the struggle over?
I ask you. YES! YOU!
Will the problem be over?
When you close your eyes, Will it be gone?
When you are in a state of stupor, Will it be gone?
I know the struggles are real and sometimes devastating.
IT IS LEFT FOR YOU TO MAKE UP YOUR MIND.
STAND UP AND STAND FIRM.
BEAT YOUR CHEST AND SAY TO YOURSELF.
‘I CAN DO IT’
I CAN FACE IT
NO MATTER THE OBSTRUCTION
NO MATTER THE OBSTACLE
I BELIEVE IN MYSELF
I WILL STAND FIRM.
It is all in the MIND.
Your mind is your power.
Your mind is your stronghold. Speak to yourself.
“Accept What is, Let Go of What Was, Have Faith in What will Be”.
It means you should try and drop off all that was.
Stop thinking of yourself as a loser and
Look forward to the future.
Where you start is definitely not where you will end.
You are You.
You think it through, You face it, You solve it.
It all depends on how well you face your challenges.
So, you decide what you will do with it.
Step by step,
when you make up your Mind,
you will realize that,
it takes just one step to turn your life around
and confront your struggles and challenges.
And remember, the struggle will always be there.
Leave a comment on how you can solve any type of struggle you are facing, or you have faced.
