Day 49 – Crisis and Clarity

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.

When people tell me “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”
I reply “If life doesn’t give you sugar and water, your lemonade is gonna suck.”

Clarity of vision and support is my sugar and water.  =)
