The Last Thing You Want to Do When You Feel Blue

While it would be lovely to be showered with hope without doing anything, when we do something, we're gifted for our efforts.

Last week’s story about how I listened to my gut (it wasn’t grumbling like it is now) telling me to quit my job without a job got some terrific feedback.

I received Facebook and email messages telling me about some difficult situations and how the post was a word in due season. That makes me SO happy!

Now, if you follow me on Facebook and Twitter you may have noticed that my posts this week have been focused on hope. (And if you don’t, why not?! Take a sec to connect!)

Sometimes when we’re down and out, the last thing we want to do is read inspirational stories, but I actually prescribe it to some of the amazing women I coach, because if we don’t remind ourselves that wonderful things can and do happen, we just might forget when we’re not in such a good state of mind.

The key here is to approach it from a place of believing that if it could happen to someone else, it could happen to you.

I wanted to recommend a book I read a few years ago called Epiphany: True Stories of Sudden Insight to Inspire, Encourage and Transform by Elisa Ballard.

The reality is that not everyone gets whacked over the head with their epiphany – and maybe that’s for the best. ;-)  Inspiration, hope, insight, faith, etc. comes in many different forms.

Reading these stories will spur you to reflect on your own life and impress upon you that fact that everyone has a unique purpose which unfolds differently.

If you don’t read Epiphany, consider a biography or autobiography of someone that interests you and see what you can learn from their story. Or do a Google search for inspirational stories. There are sooo many out there!

While it would be lovely to be showered with hope without doing anything, we usually have to do something to receive it. But when we do, we're gifted for our efforts.  Promise.

The next time you're in need of a lift, make one small attempt to cheer yourself up, and watch what happens.

Want Epiphany, but don’t want to pay for it?

You could go to the library (and “bee” sure to return it on time) OR you could follow me on Facebook and post the top 2 things you’re hoping for.  When you do, you’ll be entered in a drawing for a free copy.

And, everyone who comments will get some virtual love, support, and hope as I will keep your specific intentions in my thoughts and send good energy your way!  See you there!

For a free mini-coaching session, more musings, and to hear what I made with my first infomercial purchase, listen to today’s podcast!

And as always, if you liked this, chances are someone you know might too, so please feel free to spread The Buzz by sharing with the links and buttons so that more people can “bee” inspired.

Thank you for sharing and until next time…
