My formal training was in pastoral work. I actually have a Bachelors and Masters in religion from Lipscomb University. I did pastoral work professionally for awhile, but obviously I'm not doing that anymore. I'm not doing that for pay in other words. I still shepherd the people I'm around, and they shepherd me because a teacher is always learning- a good teacher that is.
As life moves along at a fast past you've likely experienced similar transitions. The ladies I just hired have been through changes. They've suffered through loss like me, yet they keep putting one foot in front of the other. There's power in never giving up. There's power in not letting failure or the rejection from others weigh you down to the point that you give up. Every day provides these opportunities, and every day you have to answer some of the same questions over and over.
Do I get out of bed? Do I go to work? Do I return evil for evil for those who mistreat me? Do I keep beating myself up over my past failures, or do I figure out a new way to make a meaningful life? These questions have to be answered by all of us.
Give yourself time to heal from the pain that comes. Don't give into a victim mentality. Don't accept what someone else has said about you, and don't waste time feeling sorry for yourself.
And by the way, we have a great residential cleaning company here at Clean Houses. And we handsomely reward referrals.
