Daily Inspiration: You’ve Got This!

There you are…minding your own business, going to work or school, enjoying family, taking vacations and WHAM!  Life throws you a sucker punch right in the gut. Suddenly, out of no where, your life is in crisis mode, a downward spiral and it looks like things will never be the same again.

A smart person once told me that God only gives the hardest lessons to those he knows can handle them the best. I’ll never forget that. It has gotten me through a lot of very difficult times in my life. One of the main questions people ask during a crisis is “why did God do this to me?” This is indeed an excellent question. During the lowest times in my life, instead of blaming God, I ask “Why did he choose to give me this lesson? What am I supposed to learn from this?”

I truly believe there is a lesson in everything that happens…

EVERYTHING happens for a reason…EVERYTHING!

The trick is to find the reason behind the crisis. I’ve discovered that the search for the reason is a very therapeutic way of maintaining sanity and getting through a crisis in one piece.

In the mean time, if you are currently going through a crisis, or having trouble, I find music helps calm me down. Here are 4 songs about making it through a crisis.

Enjoy, and don’t worry, all you have to do is find the lesson….YOU’VE GOT THIS!









About Tamara Hoerner (1349 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
