Feeling Stretched

Life's not always fair.  Sometimes you can get a splinter even sliding down a rainbow.  ~Terri Guillemets
Last week was a stretching week and I feel sore as a result.
Muscles that I haven't worked in a long time are now causing me discomfort as I have been starting to rely on them once again - unaided, without a crutch.
Building up the strength in these muscles again is a painful process.

I have spent the week tripping over my bad attitudes which have been constantly strewn across my path.
They end up hurting not only me but also those I love.

I need to do my stretches so the aches and pains don't cripple me, so I don't walk with a limp.
I know I need to once again become strong enough to not let the emotions that come through circumstances consume me.

I have to realise there's no point overexerting myself - just little by little, stronger day by day - and going easy on myself with no expectations so I can once again effortlessly live lightly and joyfully.


  1. Hmmmm Good stuff Brigitte. Stretching - can be painful at the time, but prevents long term injury!

  2. Bit by bit. Go easy on yourself. And I understand. Love you xxx

  3. Beautifully expressed Brigitte. Thinking of you x

  4. Oh how I love this post. It reminds me in so many ways of the journey I too am on. On Sunday in church I was stuck with the fact that God sets us up to succeed and that He only requires of us little by little. Deuteronomy 7 is an awesome example of how God looks after us and that the best results are achieved little by little (vs 22). Praying for you and your family xxx


I love hearing from you! Please leave a comment X
