Reflections:You Got To Be Strong

            


If you can keep your head when all about you
                Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
                If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
                But make allowance for their doubting too;
                If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
                Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
                Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
                And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;
                If you can dream--and not make dreams your master;

Instead, he called his neighbors together, told them what had happened, and enlisted them to help haul dirt to bury the old donkey in the well and put him out of his misery.

CNB Reflections:You Think You 've Lost Everything?

          


Everything in this world is temporary. We’re not made to live forever. We’re only going to get 60, 80, or 100 years on this planet. This means we’re going to experience major losses in life.—Losses of loved ones and relationships, and many other secondary losses. There are going to be storms of stress, torrents of tragedy, gales and gusts of grief, and floods of failure. When these things happen, the typical, often unanswerable question we ask is “Why?” “Why is this happening to me? Why is this going on?” We may never get an answer to these questions on this side of eternity, but I’ve discovered from other people’s experiences that we often don’t need an explanation as much as encouragement.
Explanations don’t encourage us. Therefore, it’s far more helpful, instead of asking “Why?” to ask “What?” “What do I do now? What’s next?” Whether you’ve lost a loved one, your job, your financial security, or a dream, your heart is broken. What do you do when it seems you’ve lost it all? How do you rebuild your life? Steps to rebuilding your life
1. Release your grief.
