What next? What do you do? What happens when everything and everyone you know says No to you? What do you do when everything falls apart?
Cry?
Laugh?
Break a nail?
Smash everything around you?
Run?
Shut everyone out?
Talk to someone?
Cry with a friend?
Take a walk?
Scream at everything and everyone?
Breathe?
Today, I watched life and everything I thought I had and knew say No!. I felt like running away, shouting into the air, Get angry, shut everything and everyone out. But yet again, I couldn’t why, you ask? Because if I loose myself when am supposed to get it together, I just may never find my way back again. Besides God gave us the ability to do, not just to try
Give thanks rather than cry. It’s not easy but then we’ve got to try.
If I feel this way, how about those that don’t have anyone to share their feelings with? Those who can’t express themselves? Those tired of life? Those depressed and fading away gradually by the tickling of time? Am just asking?
Having received major rejections from life and people around you, especially from your loved ones, would you still be able to smile? I just couldn’t smile at that time but I knew I had to and I did.
Many of us have the perfect picture of how we want our lives to be. Perfect picture of how our day should go. How we expect people to treat us. Dont forget, because you are kind doesn’t mean people have to treat you the same way.
Some of are great planners and don’t like to do anything outside our plans. This can be very hurting when life decides to change our plans without notifying us.

Oftentimes the relationship we so much longed for and dreamt of keeps eluding us, our dreams may seem unrealistic and unfulfilling.
On top of it all,we feel disconnected from the world and everything around us.  But then we” gotta”keep trying and keep trusting.
Today, I felt like a shadow version of the person I thought I was or knew. I couldn’t take a breath but then my only hope was to trust God to fix everything for me, and he did.
Familiar to you? If it does, then, begin to ask yourself, contemplate on what it is that you really want, review your goals and ambitions. Remind yourself that it’s not over yet, it’s only beginning. Ask yourself what really matters now?
To remind yourself that you are in charge of your life and you determine how much of it you want, can take.
After all these years working with people in pain and in joy, I have come to understand that there are somethings in life that can’t be fixed. When life says no to them, you can’t change it, but you do have choice.
1. When a loved one dies
2. When a relationship falls apart as a result of irreconcilable differences from both parties.
3. When sickness delays and denies you of great opportunities.
4. When you are thrown out of your job for an offence you never committed.
It’s up to you and I to decide if we want to remain sad or if we want to be happy. Lets also bear in mind that God wants us to be happy, prosper and be in good health even as our souls prospers.
I just know that sometimes good things fall apart, so better thing can fall together.

” The Lord is my shepherd. I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows
He leads me beside peaceful streams
He renews my strength
He guides me along right paths, bringing honor to His Name
Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid
For You are close beside me.”
Everything will fail but God won’t.
When God says No, what next?
