Bent and Stretched But Not Broken

Problems! They come in all shapes, sizes, amounts and times! Some of which we can control others we can’t. What gets us is that moment when all of our problems start to accumulate in our minds. Then we start to evaluate, determine and wonder how we got where we are. What a bummer!

I’d hate to sound down and depressed but the truth is… I’ve been feeling this way for a few days. So many events and people tend to have an impact on my mood and what I think about. But another truth is that all of these trials that we go through are just that. They are trials. They don’t last long and we are given these storms to go through just to make us stronger in the end. We can either learn from them, use them as fuel to become better or we can continue to let them remain as hinderances in our lives. 

I’ve recently learned a new term: bent. Instead of suggesting that my heart was broken, I’ll replace that and say that my heart has been stretched. Broken suggests that it’s no longer capable of its duties. That’s not the case at all. In fact, although my heart has been stretched in so many ways, I still believe it’s like rubber and can bounce back to it’s original state. It may take time, but eventually it will heal. 

Just some food for thought.
