Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. In yesterday’s article, Second Chance to Live and a Crossroad I shared a bit of a struggle that brought me to a crossroad concerning my mission and vision with Second Chance to Live.
In response to that article. a friend sent a comment to encourage me. In her email she shared some thing that resonated with me. She shared with me that she had also found herself in a funk. When I read her statement, “that she had also found herself funk” I realized that had I also been in a stuck in a funk for a little over a week.
She went on to share that her funk had pretty much past and she stopped worrying.
When I read her statement, I was filled with hope because I was reminded that funks do not last. When I read her statement what I had been experiencing made sense. When I read her statement I identified with her. Much more, I realized that I could look beyond myself, ask for help from a loving God and look for solutions.
