Keep showing up!

Monday.

Again!

*sigh*.

Time.

Time to start over.

Again.

Time, to show up.

Again.

Time.

Time, to choose the starting line.

Again.

Time.

Time, to wonder:

Will today be the day where we get to win, finally?

Will today be the day where we lose, yet again?

Will today be the day where we give up on our dreams, on ourselves, on those never coming promises?

We won’t know, though, if we don’t go, if we don’t grow, if we don’t show up.

Showing up, EVERY day, is not easy.

Showing up, not knowing today’s outcome, is not easy.

Showing up, understanding we may lose the whole ball game today, is not easy.

Yet, we win, EVERY TIME, we push through, show up, and TRY.

The more we show up, the more we TRY, the more we come to realize how precious and priceless this ‘in the meantime’ can be if we but ALLOW it to be.

The more silent Life and God is during this ‘in the meantime’, the more I find out about me.

I find out how much I really do care. I find out at times I wish I didn’t care quite so much. I find how strong I am. I find how weak I actually am.

I find myself cheering me on more, doubting myself less. I find me giving myself more of a break. I find myself giving me less of a hard time.

We show up, at the starting line, hoping there will be folk cheering us on. We hope there are folk, hooting and hollering, along the way. We hope there are folk, waiting with a towel, an encouraging word, a hug, at race day’s end.

Often, we find, we have run, alone. Yet, again. We find, we have had to encourage ourselves. We find, we have to care for ourselves, at the end of the day.

The small victory, won, just in showing up, was viewed only by put own eyes.

*sigh*.

Sure would have been nice, we think to ourselves, to have had a cheerleader, a supporter, a caregiver today.

Whats the point, we sometimes ask, to keep showing up when there is no one to support, cheer, lead us on?

Do we, then, show up for them, for us, for God, for Life, to be seen, to win, to gain trophies, to grow, to live?

Who knows. Who cares. You could ask me those questions ten times and I could give you 25 different answers depending on my mood.

The point is to keep showing up. No matter what. No matter why. No matter where. No matter who.

We can not win, the race, if we don’t show up, for the race.

Keep showing up, beloveds.

If no one shows up, but you, so what!

Keep showing up.

If no one believes, but you, so what!

Keep showing up.

If no one tries, but you, so what!

Keep showing up.

If you show up, and lose, today, so what!

Keep showing up.

You can do this, beloveds.

You CAN.

You WILL!

We will make it, together, eh?

God believes in you.

Life believes in you.

Won’t you, beloveds, believe in you? You have doubted you, long enough. How about some extra TRY, on your behalf.

Keep showing up.

I show up with you.

We got this.

God and Life has us all.

hanging in there with you,

Cassandra TRYing STILL

Your efforts were NOT done in vain.

Your efforts, your striving, your TRYing has NOT been in vain.

Yes, it seems as though your efforts have come to naught.

Yea, the struggle still feels like a struggle and humungous waste of time.

Yea, the silence, the world, circumstances, situations all seem to be wondering why on earth you have not given up yet.

Yes, all this hollering, into this huge void, called life, seems to be resulting in the same old, same old.

DAMMIT! WE ARE TIRED OF THIS SAME OLD, SAME OLD!!!

We are ready to SEE something.

We are ready to BE something.

We are so ready to HAVE something.

Where are You, God and Life?

You promised to show up, to show out, if we did our part.

We are doing our part. When will You do Yours?

When…*sigh *.

Aha! The in the meantime, of this waiting, of this TRYing, of this striving, of this believing, of this loving, of this living, is getting a bit heavy.

God, Life, we need for You to show Yourselves, on our behalf. Fight for US, as we fight for You, for others.

We are not even sure if we can tell you how hard it is, living in the meantime. It’s not just that it’s hard, God and Life.

We can deal with the hard. It’s the silence, it’s the not knowing how long this time will last, it’s the not knowing of things will ever be as we hope or long for them to be.

We will keep TRYing God and Life. But, we need, rather we ask to see some signs, soon.

We could use some grace, some hope, some peace, and some joy, to help us keep on keeping on.

Help us to know that our efforts, that our TRY is not in vain. Help us. Help me. Help me to remember we got this.

We got this, beloveds. Keep going. No matter what. No matter where. No matter who.

Remember, you are NOT your broken pieces. You are NOT your pain.

You ARE:

Amazing.

A world changer.

A champion.

Believe. In YOU. God and Life believes in you. You got this. As do I.

Your efforts were NOT done in vain. You gave your heart. You gave your all. It is enough. As are you.

Don’t give up. Not quite yet. Stay til the end of the movie. It will be worth the wait.

Your TRY is needed.

Your TRY is needed.

Your TRY is crucial.

Your TRY causes others to want to try.

Your TRY causes Heaven to try harder, on your behalf.

Your TRY is changing lives, is changing your own.

Even, when you can’t see, the outcome. ESPECIALLY, when you can’t see it.

See, God and Life don’t want you bearing a needless burden. They don’t want you thinking you are responsible for making the thing happen, for changing the situation or circumstances. Yes, your TRY helps God, helps Life, moves things along. Yet, it is God, it is Life, who does the thing, changes the situations and circumstances.

God and Life, are The Cooks. We be the servers. Servers don’t plan the menu. Servers don’t cook the meal. Servers don’t worry about the number of patrons. Servers serve. And, collect the tips! πŸ™‚

ALL God and Life requires is your TRY.

Did you know, beloveds, your TRY is soooooo important, folks get jealous, the world doesn’t like it, the enemy detests it, circumstances and situations are terrified of your TRY.

So, they all gang up on you. See, they are desperate to keep you from KNOWING how valuable your TRY is, how CRUCIAL your TRY is. How we ALL need your TRY. Tell them to all go kick some rocks!

Don’t you DARE let others, situations, circumstances or any other thing or person lie to you and convince you that your TRY doesn’t matter, that your works and your words don’t matter.

They do.

YOU do.

Your TRY matters.

A great deal.

Beloveds, you may never see the results of some of your TRY. Is it only the results you seek? Or, do you TRY, do you LOVE, do you CARE, do you SHARE, to be of service?

Now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with trying in order to get an expected outcome. Nothing at all wrong with day dreaming and working towards the dream, goal, relationship, situation.

The trick, the challenge, the heartbreak, is the knowledge that our TRY may not give us the outcome we were looking for. In fact, the exact opposite may happen. Or, something completely unexpected may happen. And, THAT unexpected may not be to our liking.

Our TRY, that we were hoping would benefit us, may well benefit someone else and us not so much.

Can you be okay with the results of your TRY?

Do you TRY only to gain, for yourself?

Do you TRY only to gain, for those you care for?

Do you TRY, in order to gain recognition or accolades?

Do you TRY, so long as the answer is yes?

Do you TRY, so long as the situation, relationship, job is easy/comfortable/rewarding/(insert your own words here).

Will you continue to give your TRY, when the answer is no?

Will you continue to give your TRY, when the going gets rough and stays tough?

Will you continue to give ALL of your TRY, when finding out your TRY will only benefits strangers you will never meet, outcomes you will never receive, recognition you will never ‘earn’?

Will you hold your TRY ranson, until God and Life gives you things the way you think you SHOULD have them?

Will you without your TRY, from loved ones who have disappointed or hurt you?

Will you take back your TRY, from God and Life, when you think They have disappointed or hurt you?

Does your TRY comes with strings and conditions?

For God?

For Life?

For others?

For YOU?

Does your TRY have a shelf life? Is there a limit on how much of your TRY you will give/live?

Will you TRY, still, when God and Life asks you for the extra effort you don’t feel or think you have?

Will you give your TRY, to others, knowing some may dismiss, disregard, deny your TRY?

It’s important to be honest. With yourself. With God. With Life. It’s not easy. TRYing, trying, trying, trying, trying while hearing nothing, receiving nothing, having nothing….*sigh*.

Our TRY is needed, beloveds.

There are lives God and Life can only reach with YOUR hands, with YOUR heart, with YOUR love, and with YOUR TRY. This is why you are where you are at. Not to punish you. Not to make you wait, needlessly, endlessly. But, because others are in need of you, in need of your TRY.

Keep going, beloveds.

Keep TRYing.

No matter what.

No matter where.

No matter who.

Your TRY will be honored. Your TRY is being honored, now, even as you see no fruits of your labor.

Aha!

Your fruits, your rewards, your crowns, your jewels, ARE being stored up for you, EVERY TIME YOU TRY.

Rewards gained, forever earned, forever changing your life and the lives of others. Just your TRY is changing you, changing your circumstances, changing your situation, changing your perspective.

Keep TRYing.

Keep loving.

Keep living.

Keep giving.

I try, love, live and give with you.

We got this.

God and Life has got us all.

His servant and your friend,

Cassandra TRYING STILL

Real talk: stay PRESENT.

“I have NO idea how I am going to make it to Friday!”

That’s what I told my wombie, last night. ALL I saw was THREE MORE DAYS of existing, when I had barely scraped through Tuesday. Friday seemed so faaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr awwwwaaaayyyy!!!

Just thinking about it had me despairing….hmm……

AHA!!!!

Instead of staying, PRESENT, I was tornmenting myself imaging how hard the next day, then the next day, then the next day would probably be.

Fretted and prayed. Prayed and fretted. Realized, dummy, since you prayin’ what the world you frettin for???

Got some act right, right quick.

Prayed and asked God and Life for grace for tomorrow. Fought the night, to win the dawn. Lost, yet again…..*sigh*.

Yet, woke, still tired, but grateful/hopeful/joyful. God and Life had filled my morning with peace, THEIR Peace. No, I did not yet have peace of mind with missing mom and dad so. Yet, I had PEACE, in my heart, deep within my soul.

Peace my parents rested, in PEACE. Knowing this, well, it gave me peace. On top of this, God gave me His Love, His Peace, His Care. I felt LOVED, jamming to CeCe Winans, drinking coffee, thinking on good times I had with my parents, having a FANTASTIC cinnamon roll, getting geared up to attack and win my day.

I had completely forgotten about how I was supposed to be all tore up and despairing all day and the next day and the next day.

NOT!

God and Life makes EVERY day, FOR us. To ENJOY. To LIVE. To LOVE. To GIVE. To RECEIVE.

Yes, the day may also contain some tough moments, some rough moments and on and on. Yet, those are just moments, beloveds. We do NOT have to ruin an entire day because some moments were rough. We have the rest of the day to make the best of the day!

YYYAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

Grief did NOT have the last word.

Loss did NOT have the last say.

God and Life did!

YAAAASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!

I am so very thankful I made the CHOICE to stay PRESENT. I did not waste the day reminding myself how tough yesterday was. Yesterday is gone. Today, is what I have. It’s ALL I have. I am doing my utmost to use it wisely.

I’m glad I did not hide, under the covers, away from my wombie, away from myself, away from God, away from Life. Have done that way too many times, in the past.

Life is short, beloveds. Stay PRESENT.

Worry not, about what tomorrow may bring.

WHATEVER tomorrow brings, it brings God and Life with it! How awesome is that???! How bad a day could it EVER be KNOWING you are not alone in it, with it?

Life is Good. Even when it is hard. ESPECIALLY when it is hard. The hard gives us new opportunities to stand, live fully, love relentlessly, give endlessly, rejoice constantly, work consistently.

HOW GREAT IS THAT!!!!!!???

Don’t fear tomorrow, beloved. Look forward to it. Keep moving forward. It WILL be worth it, in the end.

Keep on stretching, beloveds. Keep on enlarging your tent, keep on opening your heart, keep on making your circle larger and larger and larger to contain all the love, dreams, hopes that God and Life have prepared for you.

We almost there, beloveds. We almost there….

Keep going.

I go with you.

I love you.

Me. πŸ™‚

#YourLifeMattersToMe

You are…

…loved.

Seen.

Heard.

Valued.

Take time to cherish YOU, today.

Life is short. Yea, it hurts, at time. Much too short, though, to waste too much of it on regrets, whatifs and omygoodnesses.

If you have been going through a rough patch, take a deep breath, tilt your head back and say…..ha! I got this!!

If I could take away life’s hurts, pains and strains for us all, I would. Since I can’t, I give us all to He who can and will as we reach out.

Take care as you are precious, priceless and without measure. There is none like you and never shall be.

LOVE you and let others in. Life much too short for hiding and surviving.

praying for us all,

Cassandra CHERISHED

Broken pieces: You are NOT your pain.

Broken pieces: You are NOT your pain.


I have been trying to write this piece, since April. Today seems fitting, somehow.

Had to scrape my way, out of bed. Forced myself, to STAY at work. Dammit!

Sunday is Father’s Day. I BARELY made it, through Mother’s Day, in one piece.

Still, I stood.

This last week, though, has been impossible. Almost.

I was really doing okay, yall. That is, until I wasn’t. Grief has such an unfair way of sneaking up on you, unsuspecting. Here I was, minding my own, felt a tap on the shoulder and……

WHACK!!

I told myself that grief WILL NOT, absolutely will not, have the last say. I let grief know, loss will NOT have the last word.

Grief, got mad and whacked me, upside the heart, once again.

The one thing grief will never understand is God and Life will NEVER leave us to suffer grief, alone. So long as we reach out, God and Life will ensure we are okay. Will offer us comfort. Will be there, WITH us, as grief has it’s say.

Yet, it is imperative, during these times, we lean, HEAVILY upon God’s Deep and Abiding Love for us, on HIS Character, and HIS Word.

If not, we can, and often do, listen to grief’s sad song, for much longer than we should. Yes, grieving is necessary. It’s normal. It’s healing. We can allow grief and loss, though, to turn into something else, if we are not careful.

If we try and deny it, hide it, dismiss it, wish it away, it just comes out in other ways, often unhealthy ones, to boot.

Losing someone you love, losing something you have loved, letting go of something that has meant the world to you, is never easy. It was not meant to be so. We hurt so, BECAUSE we loved so hard and so much. No shame in that.

The most important thing to remember, when going through an especially tough time, is to KNOW that you are NOT your pain. Neither, am I. It just FEELS like it, doesn’t it? It’s tough, to think straight, when something has hurt you bad enough where you would dearly love to snatch your heart, out of your chest, and sit it somewhere, til the pain goes away.

We just want the pain to STOP ALREADY! Go kick some rocks, pain/grief/loss!!

It’s super important, to let God and Life in, to let folks who care for you, in, to support you, as you work your way up, out and through the painful moments. Far too many of us, my dumbsky self included, at times, tend to dismiss our grief/loss/pain as either ‘too heavy’ or ‘too inconvenient’ for others. We don’t want to ‘be a burden’…..smh….sigh.

Beloveds, you are never, ever, ever, ever, EVER a burden. Not to God. Not to Life. Not to those who truly love you. ALL want to support you, to watch your back, if you will but allow them to.

Be good to yourself. Be PATIENT with yourself. Be aware you are in a tough spot, having some tough moments.

Give yourself room to grieve, space to feel or not feel. Remind yourself it truly is okay to not be okay until you are okay again. You will be. I shall be.

In the meantime, keep on taking out the trash, living in the moment, loving folks and allowing folks to love you. Get enough to eat. Rest, as best as you can. Read a book. Listen to some uplifting music. The trick is to DO something.

Quitting is NOT an option.

Hiding is NOT an option.

Going into survival mode is NOT an option.

Keep on living, beloveds. Keep going.

You SHALL over come these moments.

As shall I.

You are NOT your pain.

Neither am I.

When loss is not a loss.

I miss my mom. I miss my dad. I miss my brother. Could go on, but will stop with them.

Have been fighting the good fight, being a good daughter, good sister, hard worker, supportive friend.

Exhausting. I want to not have to be those people, to have to do those things.

Took out the trash, yesterday. Didn’t want to. HAD to.

Made sure to eat. Made sure not to hide. Didn’t want to. HAD to.

Father’s Day is Sunday…*sigh *. Hey, dad. Still trying, to be a big girl. To be strong. To be good.

Want to tell effort, to tell my TRY, to go kick rocks.

Can’t do that. HAVE to keep going. Your loss wasn’t a loss. Your days came to their end, as must all things.

The trick is not allowing your natural end, to make me want to end my forward momentum. I would dearly love to.

Have considered hiding, in plain sight, until Father’s Day is over. Can’t do that, dad. HAVE to keep going. Have a life to live. Have trash to take out. Have a dishwasher to load and unload.

Think I will have a cup of coffee, mom, dad, and big bro. Will have a cup and think of you.

You are in your new journey. I must continue in mine. Wish I knew how to do this without you. God and Life says it’s okay to not be okay. No idea if I am okay or not.

You are not lost. Neither am I. Just FEEL lost without you.

Until I see you all again…πŸ˜₯
