When the days feel heavy…

Do you ever feel that at times no matter how bright the sun is shining, you just can’t appreciate the beauty of it? You can’t shake the immense burden that seems to feel heavier and heavier every day. Some days it's easier to carry but then other days it weighs just so much more than usual.

That feeling has been following me around for the past few days. The alarm rings in the morning, and just a dreadful feeling of “I need to stay in bed today” clouds my mind. It’s not laziness but more mental and emotional exhaustion that you just have no desire to do absolutely anything.

It can be hard to describe our feelings to others. It can be hard to even understand what it is that we are feeling ourselves.

When the days feel heavy and there seems to be nothing we can do right, I hope you can find something to look forward to. I hope that you have someone close to you that can relieve some of that burden off your shoulders. I hope you give yourself grace. To feel the off days, to feel scared, to let yourself heal from the inside out.

So when the days feel heavy, I hope you can look into your heart, and find something that you can hope for. Something to make you smile, even if it's just one thing. Even if it’s just fresh air, even if it's just the smell of coffee…
