Are you stressed out and tired of everything weighing you down? Is life so busy, and you want a moment’s peace? I have been a product of busyness and stress out for so long, and it has become my whole life. Whenever I would go places, work all day, come home, feed the children, and want to relax, someone calls and needs me to do something else.
I have always wanted to serve others and help whoever needed my help, but if I’m not taking care of myself, how will I help anyone else? People could see the worry and anxiety all over my face as I tried to smile and be there for everyone else. Oftentimes I would get so frustrated because I was not getting enough rest, but whenever someone needed me, “I’m here for you” is where my mind went to.
I started to deal with a lot of pain and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at a very early age of sixteen, and the reason they gave me is that I was not resting enough. They put me on antidepressants and told me I would have to take the medication for the rest of my life. When I heard that, I said no way would I take this medicine forever. Something had to change!
I took it for a while, but I realized unless I began to change things within myself as time went on. So I read a devotional called “Trusting God Day by Day” by Joyce Meyer, and it said, “We cannot expect to keep doing the same thing over and over and get a different result. If you want different results, you have to change what you are doing.”
Living life overworking, feeling burdened by life’s choices, and getting no relief from the pain you feel inside and out must change and overcome those circumstances. I have learned to calm the storm within me so that I can always live free from turmoil and in peace.
