Day 52 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Funkville

Inaction breeds doubt and fear.  Action breeds confidence and courage.  If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it.  Go out and get busy.
~Dale Carnegie

Day 52 - 90

Have you ever had one of those days where everything seemed to be humming along just fine when {{BAMB!}} out of the blue you get hijacked by those obnoxious intruders also known as cruddy feelings?

Well, that describes my day today.  Talk about being blind-sided.  Just a few hours earlier I had a convo with Lara that had fired us both up as we talked about the future of Peace with Food and plans for the future.

Life was great!

Then came ThE HiJaCk.

I really don’t know what brought it on, but instantly I was transported to Funkville.  Ever been there?  I was overcome with ambivalent, vague, and LoUsY FeeLiNgS.

Is this really happening?  Just hours ago I was on a high and now I am feeling pretty low – no energy, no motivation, no spark whatsoever.

So I did the only thing I knew to do.  SaiD a PrAyEr and then RiPpEd It LiKe a BaNd-AiD.  Yes, I  got to work. There was no way I was going to let the Funk get the best of me.

And true to form, after awhile I realized that those crazy intruders were gone.  I was living life in color again.

Next time you encounter the hijack, why not give this system a try?  Or come up with your own.  Just find that something that helps you ExiT OuT Of FuNkViLLe.

Day 19 – 1% Change {90-Day Challenge} Hang On


{This post is for the person of faith.  If that’s not you, no worries.  You can read it if you like or simply bypass it.}

Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
James 1:2-4 (NIV)

Day 19 - 90Wow.  Things don’t seem to be letting up at all.  Today I am facing such great discouragement.  I’m down.  Maybe even sad.

It doesn’t help that it is a downpour outside.  And on top of that there is other stuff going on in my life that contributes to tHe FuNk.

My father had emergency brain surgery this past week.  At times we didn’t know if he would make it.

I feel like I have been punched in the stomach and have had all the air knocked out of me.  BUT, I’m holding on.  Today I am specifically holding on to hope by saying James 1:2-4 out loud over and over and reminding myself that the testing of my faith produces perseverance.  Yes, this test is producing the very thing I am after!

If you find yourself in a season of funk, HaNg On.  This ride won’t last forever.

If, on the other hand, life is bliss, I hope to join you soon.  You can just file this away for down the road when you are facing a rainy day.

However you find yourself today, know I’m thinking of ya and SeNdiNg a PrAyEr that you’ll be strengthened and encouraged as you FoLLoW PeAcE.
