Digging makes you feel better

 

Hello to my faithful two followers! I appreciate your willingness to read what is on my mind for the day. Truly, I hope it provides some helpful insight.

With that said, I’ve found that digging things up or out is helpful. Children like to dig boogers out, dig holes in the yard, dig embarrassing moments up when in front of company, etc. Even as adults, we like to dig out inappropriate things such as wedgies…Admit it, when it’s out, you feel better…:). I drive my husband nuts the most when I pick my face…yes I do and it’s an addiction. I tell him it makes me feel better when something oozes out. I know that is gross but I’m weird ok..it’s just me. God loves me. Moving on…

Today, I want to mention the importance of digging up our stuff and dealing with it. Not digging up junk on others that would be gossip and let’s be honest, gossip benefits no one so why do it. What then, you may ask am I referring to digging up?  Maybe it’s a childhood dream, maybe it’s likes and interests you’ve buried while raising kids, maybe it’s a talent you haven’t used in a while, or maybe it’s hurts/bad memories/lack of forgiveness for someone/or another other sickness of the heart.

Whatever it may be as Dr. Henry Cloud would say, “Your job is to dig it up and then do one of two things sow it or throw it away!

Sowing it may require setting up a date night for you and your spouse, having a girl’s night, taking piano lessons, starting to write, etc.

Throwing it away may require you seeking therapy from a good counselor or calling an old friend to say I forgive you or I”m sorry.

Whatever it is, Digging it up will free you up!

Love,

Natalie

Love this! Digging up seems like the story of my life right now. Very nice prospective on separating between “sow it” or “throw it away”. Thanks, Natalie!
