Some Days



Some days you just have to remember that it's okay to not be okay.

You have to consciously stop and remind yourself not to compare who you are and what you do to other people because you are a unique creation.

Some days it's just enough to get up and take your next breath and be thankful for that.

Some days you have to stop and recall that you are not living in "that" nightmare anymore and it's okay to free your heart even at the risk of it being broken or betrayed.

Some days you have to let the walls down so others at least have a chance at saying, "Hey. I accept you just the way you are and I love you no matter what. I'm not going to run as soon as you have a bad day. I'm not going anywhere and I'm a safe person. You don't have to worry about me leaving or abandoning you."

Some days you don't need to analyze why this person looked at you a certain way or that person didn't say something in a particular way or respond the way you would have expected them to.

Some days you just have to let the tears flow that have been waiting to burst forth.

Some days you have to believe that because you may struggle with and illness of any kind you have people around you who will not judge but just say, "It's okay. You're not inadequate because of this sickness."

Some days you have to truly believe that those who are meant to be in your life will find a way to stay there and those who aren't willing or able to do that aren't worthy of your energy and effort and you need to let them go.

Some days you are just physically and emotionally spent and you don't need to spend another second worried about being viewed as inconsistent, lazy, or immature.

Some days you want to be able to say, "This is what is going on...." and explain yourself but you KNOW you will get that strange look and the person on the receiving end just won't get it so it's easier to remain silent.

Some days you just have to ignore the "Get yourself together and pull yourself up by your bootstraps and suck it up because other people have it worse off than you do" mentality and say that is them and this is me and it doesn't make me any less worthy or that I am weaker.

Some days you just need a minute or two or ten to climb up in Heavenly Daddy's lap completely empty and drained and let Him cover you with His love and compassion, and catch your tears as they fall knowing that one day those tears will be changed into a river of healing you will swim in.

Some days you just can't care about what the outside world is thinking about you.

Some days you have to embrace the fact that your imperfections, while others see them as flaws, are really the very things that make you unique and beautiful and one of a kind.

Some day is my reality today.

Today is my “Some Day”.

I don't share it to draw attention to myself. Who would want others to know this is what they're really going through or how they really feel? Not me! I'm sharing this because I KNOW for a fact that somebody else needs to read these words and be encouraged in their own "Some Days."

Some days it’s great to be reminded that you are not alone.
