I Needed Smacked

It's true. I did. I've been having one of those discouraging days, er, weeks, um, actually months, well, . . . anyway, you know what I mean.

So, I whined and cried to my husband and my friend and my sister. My friend empathized, my non-writing sister tried to understand, and my husband told me how to fix my discouraged feelings. Although they tried, I still felt crummy.

Then I read this amazing article that smacked me. I knew I needed it, but in the back of the head? Really?

It woke me up and didn't hurt nearly as bad as I would have thought. It actually made me feel alive again.

The words that spoke to me simply said Choose Faith. Instead of floundering in the face of doubt, fear, the unknown and unseen, and pessimism, Choose Faith.


It seemed to say, "You know what you are supposed to do, so stop wallowing and do it."

So I did. And I feel so much better.


  1. Well if you needed someone to smack you, all you needed to do was say so. ;)

  2. I am so glad you found something that helped you. :) We all need help sometimes, no matter where we are in our journeys.

  3. <3 <3 <3 totally hugs <3 <3 <3

    It's funny how we all go through discouragement as we become more creative. But I agree that Faith will pull us through. =D

  4. That is perfect! I love it. Thanks for sharing because I needed that today. I'm going to choose faith.

  5. Yes! I was just saying that same thing to a friend TODAY! :-)

  6. Hurray! (I had to totally laugh at Jill's comment!)

    So glad you've become a believer!

  7. So glad that article helped steer you clearly. Now I want to know which article it was!


  8. I'm glad you're feeling better. Don't you hate it when you vent and you just want people to listen, but they just HAVE to give you advice?

  9. Excellent! Thanks for posting this wonderful reminder to choose faith.

  10. Awww. *hugs* I'm new here. *waves* Nice to meet you.

    Usually a good smacking snaps me out of it too. :)

    Plus, now I have George Michael's song in my head ♪♫'cuz I gotta have faith....'♪♫•*¨*•.

    Happy 2011,

  11. Ah, I know which article you read. Glad it helped!
