Making a Better Tomorrow


I used to say tomorrow is going to be a depression free day or tomorrow my anxiety is not going to be so bad that it is bright and sunny outside yet my eyes have blinders on to keep me in the dark. I wish it were that easy and that mental illness were that simple to overcome in a 24 hour time. We don't always know if we have a tomorrow, yet we stay completely consumed by what has happened in the past and usually fall back into the same routine day after day. Do you ever want a different path, a better tomorrow?  Don't get me wrong I'm not saying that goals are bad things to have and that change doesn't take time, but sometimes I just want change to hurry up and heal my heart, to heal everyone's hearts. I'm tired of walking outside and not seeing sunshine in the middle of summer, if I'm on the road to becoming strong then why do I feel so broken? Well I can't give you these magic words to make it so that you can heal your heart from everything that has ever happened to you and I can't make you feel that you can snap your fingers, get an antidepressant and you'll be happy for the rest of your life, but I can say that while there is a chance tomorrow won't be any less cloudy, tomorrow is the only thing we can change. I spoke briefly about my issues with control over my life and not surrendering to God and letting him lead the way, but even while I have my faults I try to as hard as I can to say the serenity prayer to myself in times when I feel my life getting derailed. "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." And while I love this prayer, oh dear is it hard to keep. It is very hard to accept the things that we cannot control, to be calm, at peace, or alright with the things we cannot change, but sometimes the change we want just isn't possible yet. Sometimes we can't just wake up the next morning and become anew and able to make it through the day with no darkness. I do know that you should never let anyone tell you that tomorrow is out of your control because as long as your breathing on this Earth everyday it is possible to change your path and be a better you than the day before and to torch our past and say, "Don't judge me by the past, I don't live there anymore." Because no matter how hard life gets and how much worse I could get I know that I don't live there anymore and that looking back then I'm at the tomorrow that I wanted then, that I needed then because I made it through that storm. And obviously I'm still working everyday with new storms and new wars waged in my mind and life, but I'm not there anymore and I know that I can make it through this because I've already made it through so much. We have no control over the past, we can change nothing about it, and we should have the wisdom to leave it behind because we don't have to keep staring at it because it is behind us, we put it behind when we conquered it by coming to today, a brand new day, and tomorrow anything is possible in our lives. So don't be closeminded and don't lose hope because even though tomorrow could be worse we have the control to make it better because we can do all things through Christ. I may be very shaken by other things and may lose faith in a lot of words, but the words, "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength." That is one thing I never forget and always carry with me.
