The Weight of the World

I got this card to send to a friend, and then I thought, you’re all my friends… why not send it to all of you!

Here’s what it says to me: Do you ever feel like you are using every tooth, nail and muscle to keep things together? Do you ever feel like these big monstrous things in your life would fall to pieces if you neglected to hold them up? Do you ever feel like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? …Or at least the weight of YOUR world?

I do.

And then I saw this picture and laughed. (Okay, maybe I cried.)

It made me realize that those big enormous things – those *important* things, daunting tasks, even hopes and dreams – they aren’t going anywhere. They won’t fall down if you take a breather.  In fact they don’t require you to work so hard.

Are they big? Yes, because they matter to you. Yet are they already stable? Yes, so don’t worry!

I’m going to say that again: don’t worry.

(You do realize I’m giving therapy to myself, right?)

So I’m in my little room, inside my crazy little head, holding up these BIG rocks. Yet, while I write you I realize my ginormous rocks are totally fine on their own while I’m otherwise involved in a pleasurable activity.  Turns out, I feel better too!

…Thanks for following my silly analogies.  I love you for it – and I love your comments!

    I think we all get to feeling that way sometimes. Best we can do is ride the wave and soon we’ll get back up again and back to smooth sailing. its all a part of life. 🙂

    Thanks for the reminder that we don’t have to hold everything up by ourselves. It is comforting to know that we can let the Lord help us with our burdens. Thanks for the inspiration.
