It's the time of the year when you make resolutions for what you want to change and achieve in your life and about yourself. Setting goals and revamping dreams is what so many of us do to start the new year. An exciting time to be refreshed and renewed. I was ready to leave last year behind and anticipate what was in the store with the coming season. Unfortunately, I just haven't been feeling it. I try to shake it and refocus, but it's just been one of those days. As I write, the lyrics to Monica's song are playing in my head.
"Just one of dem days, that a girl goes through
When I'm angry inside, don't want to take it out on to you
Just one of dem days, don't take it personal
I just wanna be all alone, and you think I treat you wrong
Don't take it personal"
For a long time, I wouldn't allow myself to feel sad or down. I would stop myself immediately because I didn't want to seem like I was weak or incapable of handling my situation. I had a friend once tell me, "It is okay to say you are not okay." That is a hard one for me because I am normally the person people ask for advice or guidance. I know trouble doesn't last always and I know joy comes in the morning. I have heard that and actually have told people that. I know what the word of God says, and I believe it. I am a child of God. Yet, I am in a funk. Even though I am feeling this way doesn't mean I am not grateful for what God has done. It doesn't mean I am unaware of His blessings, grace, and mercies He has granted me. Although, I am having a moment of sadness I know the joy of the Lord is my strength.
Have you ever had one of those days? If so, what do you do to take control of your emotions? Have you ever had one of those days? If so, what do you do to take control of your emotions?
