This morning after an anxious night of tossing and turning, I awoke, not completely as grounded as I had hoped, but at least feeling less hopeless.
It is said when you are going through crisis that the crisis has the effect of shaking up your life like shaking a jar full of sand and water, and that after a time as the crisis resolves, the debris settles to the bottom leaving a clear view of what’s important.
Yesterday, I felt the shock, anxiety and then depression of crisis, and today, the debris is settling. It has unsettled a few things I thought were important and revealed some things I didn’t know were important to me. Some of these revelations will need further consideration later, but I value the awareness.
So while the crisis is still ongoing, I can appreciate the positives that come out of negative, and while not thankful for crisis, I am truly thankful for support and encouragement that surrounds me.
