Does that sound familiar?
If you’ve ever walked a road where your life has been altered in some drastic form or fashion, it’s likely that you have repeated those nine words.
I know I have.
I said it shortly after Chris’ confession to me over six years ago. I wanted my normal life back. It was much more comfortable. Things were in their right place. I liked it better and quite frankly, I knew what to expect.
But within a matter of weeks, I learned how to live my life again. I had learned my new normal.
What is it for you? Could be that you learned something devastating about your spouse. It’s possible that your child is sick with a life threatening illness. Maybe someone has recently passed away and your world has been rocked. Simply moving to another town with no friends, no family and no church can catapult you into a depression.
Whatever it is, you have a choice to make. You’ll either stay where you are wishing your days away or you will choose to embrace your new normal.
Something to consider.
