You will survive


We are creatures of habit. As much as some of us hate to admit it or refuse to see it, we are. That’s why when something so big or large or monstrous comes along we wonder how on earth we will survive. We momentarily doubt are ability to survive because we are creatures of habit.
When a person is in an accident or the have a major operation, that person has to relearn the basics of survival – of life. They have to relearn how to bend over or walk or use a fork or comb their hair or talk. They have to start again at step one.
When change happens in our lives – even on a smaller level – we have to do the same. We have to calm down, take a seat and a deep breath, and start again. The very basics of self-care are those first few steps:
Be kind to yourself.
Eat.
Sleep.
Call your mom.
Spend time at home.
Let people do things for you.
Let some things go for another day.
And pray. Pray. Pray.
Remain in God.
Remain with God.
Remain.
Sit in the crap anmd get dirty, becayse that’s the only thing that will make you get back up.
Because you will get back up.We always do.
