CONFESSION Time. Yep, this would be me today! I’ve really debated in my head of whether or not to share my struggles but today was the straw that broke the camels back, and I hope my sharing will inspire you to be real and authentic too, even during the challenging times.
I’ve been battling a chronic health issue for many years, 20-years actually, and was even in the hospital for a week with it when doctors considered removing part of my colon. It’s called diverticulitis (or so I’ve been told), I’m not even fully convinced that’s what I have. With that comes depression, feeling guilty that I can’t get through my day full of mom, wife, everyday life and business activities! I know many of YOU reading this suffer from illnesses too, some way worse than me!
I want to encourage you to not let the guilt, shame or depression eat away at you like it used to me! I’m finally okay with accepting this is me and asking for help when needed, it’s humbling but so good for me and those who want to help, including my kids, husband and friends who are so gracious to me. Take the much needed time to REST and recuperate that your body needs. The family, friends and business peeps that are supposed to be in your life will still be there, and they will support you UNCONDITIONALLY… I promise you that!
Now, I’d love to hear from you! Have you or are you currently dealing with a health issue of some kind? Share in the thread below so I can pray for you, encourage you, and be a positive voice to say YOU CAN OVERCOME! Thank you for sharing this vulnerable place in your life…. you are loved and worthy of all good things!
With Love & Blessings,
