Fakin' the Funk

We all need help from time to time. No one can do this on his or her own.

Having said that and knowing it to be gospel, there are times when you get yourself into a particular funk.

During these times there is only one person capable of picking you up and dusting you off.


Some of my favourite Joel Osteen quotes relating to how I'm feeling right now -

"You may live or work around a bunch of weeds, but don’t let that stop you from blooming. Realize that your environment does not prevent you from being happy. Some people spend all their time trying to pull up all the weeds. Meanwhile, they miss much of their lives. Don’t worry about things you can’t change. You can’t change the traffic in the morning. You can’t fix everybody at work. You can’t make all your family members serve God. But you shouldn’t let that keep you from being happy. Bloom anyway and focus on the things that you can change. You can change your own attitude. You can choose to be happy right where you are."

"Certainly, none of us enjoy going through struggles, but you have to understand that your struggle may be an opportunity for advancement and promotion. The very thing you are fighting against so tenaciously may be the springboard that catapults you to a new level of excellence. Your challenges may become your greatest assets."

"You may think you’ve got a long way to go, but you need to look back at how far you’ve already come. You may not be everything you want to be but atleast you can thank God that you’re not what you used to be."

Feel free to add your own favourites be they from Joel or anybody, or any advice in the comments. After all, I do need your support. That's what friends and family are for.
