Energizer Bunny

Remember him? To tout the quality of Energizer’s batteries, this little bunny was spotted on television, beating a drum, and continually moving. What kept him going? The batteries, of course.

My question to you today is: what’s in your batteries?

When you’re so sick you can’t stand, when you’re throwing up and peeing at the same time, when you are so hungry that you have to eat knowing that whatever you put in your mouth will only come up later… how do you fight the pull to just give up?

When I was pregnant, hg grabbed me by my ankles and dragged me down to a pit so dark that five months later I still tear up when I think of what I endured. What kept me going, however, were the tiny moments of sunshine that reached that dark pit: my child’s kick, a friend’s encouraging words, a get-well card from my mother, a funny t.v. show. Looked at individually, these moments seem small. But when I piece them together, I see that they provided the tapestry upon which I rested, the surface that held me just above despair.

Today, deliberately find the little moments of sunshine in your life and focus on them. That’s the fuel that will fill your batteries and help you keep on going, and going, and going, until the hg goes away.

P.S. What keeps you going? Share with your sisters in suffering by posting a comment below!
