Healing One Thing

I faced a mountain of hurt, and it overwhelmed me. I shrank from it and stayed in the pain for a long time.

I know you understand. It just looks so big. The pain is so big. There seems no way through.

I’m here to guarantee that all that’s needed is the decision to heal one small thing. Just one. Take that one small thing that hurts and talk to someone about it. Talk about that one small thing.

I’m here to guarantee healing that one small thing will make you feel a million times better.

When I lived in a lot of pain, my house was a big mess. Someone suggested that I go home, and when I got to my door, I should pause and breathe deeply. Then they suggested I open the door and look inside. Whatever I saw first, wherever my eyes landed first, clean it. Just clean that one thing.

The first time, it was the coffee table. It felt like I had cleaned the Empire State Building when I finished, but it felt wonderful.

Cleaning is healing. I healed one small thing, and it helped me feel better.

Next, I healed one more small thing. Over time, it became a regular thing. Over the years, I healed a lot. I did not heal all at once. I healed one small thing after another. Eventually, I looked back and saw that I’d healed a lot. One small thing after another added up to a lot.

I’m not done. There are more small things to heal, more coffee tables to clean. I’m not fretting about it today. It doesn’t hurt the same way. It’s not overwhelming.

One small thing at a time. That’s all.
