Manager’s Memo: 1-25-22
If you’re struggling with anxiety now or have in the past, I want you to know you are NOT alone and … there’s hope it will pass. I don’t know how your December was, but mine wasn’t great. Physical anxiety, panic attacks and inability to stop it all while trying to hide it from people, left me almost paralyzed some days. I admit this because I want to give you hope… that it does all end.
Here are a few gifts God gave me during that time. The gift of temporarily slowing my roll. Permission to just be, and not be in accomplishment mode. Like I really had to let go of all I had planned. Like I had ideas of how I wanted things to go. My job, my family, travel, all the things I wanted to happen. I felt like I deserved some things from God. But honestly, where in the Bible does it say we deserve anything.
Sometimes our greatest strength, is in letting go. Letting go of what WE really want to happen. Letting go of what we think people are thinking and most importantly, letting go of dreams that we really haven’t run by God. There’s great strength on your knees … and journaling! Took about a month, but I am feeling much better and for the first time in awhile, I’m falling back in love with my job.
