Life Works…When You Work

It’s an expression that bears repeating again and again and again…

“Life works…when you work.”

Don’t be a quitter. Read some of the previous posts. Get a journal. Document your feelings. Set goals and review your previous journal entries.

Life really doesn’t have to be hard. Yes, there are setbacks. Those of us who work on this blog have experienced the death of a child, the repeated loss of jobs, betrayal of friends, tight budgets.

But none of that means we need nor should give up our dreams. In fact, it’s like writing exquisite poetry. Talk to any professional poet. Often they will tell you it is when they are writing to the tightest forms of poetry that their work shines the truest.

So no matter what you’ve faced in the past, you mustn’t give up. You can’t! The world needs you. We need you: your perspective, your creative works, your gifts, your talents.

When faced with despair or difficulty of the largest kind, please do remember this: life works when you work. And when you show up each day ready to at least try, THAT, my friend, is when the pain will ease and when you can find love and hope and balance once again.

Merry Christmas

Those of us working here behind the scenes love the Savior of the world. It is He, Jesus Christ, who has atoned for our sins and through His grace we are healed and redeemed.

As you finish out the year 2009, we pray it has brought you increased understanding and hope. If not, the scriptures can help you find peace. You may want to obtain your own set if you do not yet personal scriptures. But in the interim, here is a link to online scriptures. Enjoy browsing the link. Find your favorites. Transfer them to your journal. The peace that can come from pondering this way is truly restorative.

Merry Christmas!
