Today, I woke up with a numb limb. I couldn’t feel a lot of my fingers. And my pinky felt dead.
I sleep on the sofa, because I’m separated from my husband.
It has been hell on my shoulder.
All morning long, I’ve been feeling everything come back alive.
It was scary.
Now, dear readers, I want to tell you something that happened.
While I was massaging my pinky, something (Someone) told me, on the inside, “if you keep massaging it, it will feel life”
I was scared to even look at my pinky. I was sure it must look black.
I even had an inward feeling that I SHOULDN’T look at it, or I would not have the faith to believe in a positive outcome.
In the dark, it looked darker than the rest of my digits.
Okay, I’ll admit it… I was scared.
But as I began massaging my numb digit, I felt the Lord tell me something…all of this numbness represented my marriage.
I heard Him encourage me to keep massaging my marriage.
Which was the PERFECT parable for me, reader, because, think about it…my whole hand felt like a BLOCK. My pinky felt detatched from me.
My hand and arm were numb too.
And my mind was messing with the faith I had because i KNEW that arm had been without circulation, asleep, for hours.
Do you have this problem with any area of your life?
Because, I want you to know, if you massage it, it will come back to life.
I have a word for you…don’t give up. You are closer than you think.
It’s winter. Online sales are down for many. Maybe the only circulation your online business is getting is a trickle of traffic.
Don’t freak out. We are all going through it.
But it’s winter, and spring is coming.
You know, reader, I know I was meant to share this with you.
But I still would love some feedback.
Blessings on all of you, and please…don’t ever give up.
Spring is coming.
I live in the Midwest, and I hate the cold. I live at the computer and over the heat vent. I hibernate. I yell at the kids to close the front door. I don’t eat ice cream and everything is heated that I drink. I don’t step on the porch. And here’s what I want you to know…It never ever seems like winter will be over. Surviving each day without feeling miserable and negotiating the thermostat temperature with the overheated family is a full time job.
My snarky teen informed me that I act disabled in the cold. I know she’s right.
Every winter I swear I’ll move South next winter.
But I always get through it, and so will you.
It is Winter for many, online. Some have a perpetual tropical experience in their online sales. But that’s not the norm.
Don’t let it get you down.
This is also the time of year that many people think of blowing their brains out. That would make me so sad. Please don’t ever do that.
All of the people who read your posts, but never “like” them? They do care.
All of the times you posted an article and wondered if anyone thinks you are awesome? Yes, they do. I know I do. Some of you are so gifted in skills I don’t have. There are affiliate marketers out there who totally impress me on a daily basis (I don’t do affiliate marketing), and many of you have websites that are far sharper than mine. And traffic that might put me to shame.
But I know from experience, no matter how well you lay a foundation, and how hard you work on something, it takes time, and lots of time to carve out a succesful, a really successful online business.
If you are doing everything, I mean, everything that you know to do, have you prayed over your business? Have you listened? If you have, and you feel secure that you are meant to be an online marketer, than keep going!
Just because you aren’t getting great results, doesn’t mean you aren’t dong the right thing. But ask Him! (He will give you the plan if you are putting Him first).
Note: Readaer, let me help you. Post every single day. No matter how small. It will really help your rankings.
I think that this is the season for being kind to yourself and to one another.
I think we all need to huddle together. There are some of you that could really help others in an area that they are weak. So starting right now, if you think you have a service that you would like to barter with someone else, fill out the form. I will personally email you the details of anyone who needs your skill, or who can provide you with one.
I get no benefit from this. It’s just my way of giving back to all of you who “like” my posts and read my blog.
The invitation is open.
Thanks! I’ll be responding within 24 hours. All info is confidential. You are AWESOME!
