Today started out a little crazy. First, I did not fall asleep until after 3a and was supposed to be awake by 4:45a. Do you see how it already started out wrong? I laid back down until it was time for me to go to the gym. Everything felt fine.
I went to the gym and put my time in as I planned. However, an hour and a half later, I left the gym (notice I did not say finished my workout). Once outside, I began to feel ill and I will not describe in detail what happened next. Let’s just say that it was not pretty.
This illness just came out of nowhere. So I finally made it back to my home and tried to make a quick attempt at recovery. I reached out to my Connect Group from the church I attend and solicited their prayers. I contacted my family as well and did the same.
It is good to have people you can count on to support you and have your back during tough times. It makes you believe in the inherent good of people and gives you hope. On the other hand, everyone is not bad. Neither are they always out to get you. Some people are just genuinely concerned about us. That is it. No other motive.
Once we begin to accept this, then I think we will be a little more open to engaging others for support in our time of need.
What are your thoughts? I would appreciate any feedback from anyone. This is a community effort to living our best life in honor of the One Who has given us this life to live. Love God, love others, and love yourself!
