I consider myself to be a spiritual person more than a religious person. I go to church, I almost always have. My spirituality includes a hefty dose of GOD but I find that there are many parts of my spirituality. When the wind blows I feel peace. When I sit by the ocean I remember there is so much bigger than I. When I look at my children I feel closer to God and faith then I ever could sitting in church.
My resolution this year was to stop trying to walk alone so much of the time. I think mothers are at such a risk of trying to do it all alone. We tackle so much in any given day that sometimes we feel isolated. We feel like we bear the weight of all of our family and we just endure. Our stress levels sometimes teeter on ridiculous and critical but we endure. We continue walking alone. We forget that faith and God and spirit can carry us on days when we want to fall down.
I have found that some days I just have to accept that I am not walking my path alone. I have my faith. I have my God. I have my spirit. If I didn't have those things the isolation would most definitely overwhelm me. Some days it does but most days I stay above water.
That doesn't mean it's easy. But it's easier with help!
