Imagine if you will that you have a backpack on you back filled with very heavy rocks that you CHOOSE to carry with you everywhere you go. Everyday when you get out of bed you strap it on your back and carry it with you everywhere you go all day long. By 10 a.m. you are already weary and hurting. By the time you are home you feel like you can't take it anymore. But you will not or feel that you can not drop the rocks that are inside of your bag. If you took even one of them out you would feel less pain...So the prompt today is to NAME YOUR ROCKS. We can not even begin to start the process of dropping the rocks with the goal of having an empty backpack until we admit that we are carrying them and identify what they are.
Here are some examples of some of the rock names I have been familiar with during my lifetime:
Low Self Esteem
Do any of these look familiar? The list could go on and on. Many of us have rocks that are uniquely ours.
Today make a list of the names of your rocks that weigh you down and together during our journaling throughout the year we will address them and courageously take them out of our backpack and throw them out with the goal of not picking them back up again!
Have a joy filled day!
