Are you tired and don't seem to have enough energy to last you through the day? Is it Monday every day of the week? Well, this is YOUR day!
The trials of life come to us all, but our perspective on them determines how we deal with those stressors. It can come down to choice - how you choose to view them.
I've had my fair share of hard knocks, believe you me. I can either choose to let those things get me down, or I can lift up my eyes, know the future has to be better, and let go of those problems. There's this song in church whose chorus goes, "Shake off those heavy bands..." In the song, you're supposed to be standing and hold your hands up in the air, and literally shake them.
To be honest, I always felt really silly by doing it. But should we? Can doing something physical release us from the stressors of life like that? Sure it can! Runners run, releasing endorphins, and making the runner feel better. Endorphins, those pleasure guys in our brains, are released in all kinds of manners - even by standing and shaking your hands!
So, don't let Monday's get you down. Don't let hard times get you down. Get out there (or hide in your closet) and shake off those heavy bands! Yeah, really, physically. You'll be glad you did.
