The other day I was deep in thought wondering how I could help a friend more than being there and listening. My friend almost lost her life just from a minor surgery! It was so scary for her, her family, and me!

I was thinking about what has helped me in times of duress. Kindness is something that has helped me many times and is at the top of my list! Often helping me turn from making a bad decision. Listening is huge! Words are huge! Attitude is huge! Most of all prayers.

I tend to not know what to say when under pressure but I do know I want to be encouraging! Then this came to me:


  • Every
  • Nomenclature
  • Contains
  • Our
  • Unique
  • Range
  • At
  • Genuine
  • Enthusiasm
  • Meant
  • Every
  • Next
  • Time

I give credit to my friend who has been fighting for her life for the word “Next”. I could not come up with a word but she did! And she is getting better!

For those who read this leave a comment about how you have felt encouraged recently or how you might encourage someone else or even yourself.

  1. I’ve been encouraged lately to follow my desires. To be (what feels to me to be ) bold and daring to do the things that I enjoy. Simple things like oil painting, or going to a talk, maybe even joining a walking club. Things that express myself. Parts of me still want to hide, so it feels daring to get out and be with people, but I am encouraged to do it more. I have learned by now that the world is not the frightful place that the cult was.

  2. You are discovering yourself and in doing that seeing the world through new eyes. I like that! I can still be scared to try new things but i won’t know until I try. Some things just don’t matter to me like visiting Europe. There is so much to explore right here!

I would enjoy a reply:)
