A Real Hard P.U.S.H.

Hello J Spot!

My question today is….

What are you P.U.S.H.’ing through?

When I went off to college and even after that, every time I called my mother to share something going on in my life that I perceived as hard or ultimately insurmountable, she always told me the same thing, “Jenine, P.U.S.H.  Pray Until Something Happens.”  And time she said it, I would.  Early on, as I would try to heed my mother’s advice, the stress was all over my face; the pressure I was under was evident in my voice and I reeked of the stress I was under.  Then, somewhere along the way, I realized that while I was acting like I was P.U.S.H.’ing, if everyone could tell that I felt like my world was upside down, then I really wasn’t.

So I changed.  Just like that I decided that it wasn’t OK for others to know how the stresses of life were getting me down.  I started to behave how I thought one might when they were P.U.S.H.’ing.  I put energy into my actions.  Even when I was exhausted, I behaved as though it was all good.  Then suddenly, I started to talk to people who were doing the same thing.  They were walking and talking like it was all good until it really was just that….all good!

We are a community of like-minded individuals, who may not all be headed to the same destination, but we are all on a journey.  So I ask again….

What are you P.U.S.H.’ing through?

  1. I started off P.U.S.H.ing for myself in college and eventually adding a P.U.S.H. to my husband’s life. Now that I have children I find that I am P.U.S.H.ing them through elementary and middle school. Not only am I praying until something happens, I now Pray After Something Happens!!

    • Hi Melanie! Thanks for the comment! You know what?!?! You are absolutely right! It isn’t just about praying until something happens, you also have to pray after something happens! This way you keep the energy flowing. Becuase we all know that to whom much is given much is expected! Thank you for supporting the J Spot!

  2. Wow. I agree with you both. It works because I have my family back. I was looking through deeply tented glass thinking I was seeing clearly. Came to a point where I started to get glimpses of light, and now I am seeing clearly, probably the clearest I have seen in over 20 years. So proud of my family, and their not giving up on me, and it all has to do with P.U.S.H…..and I am sure you were using P.U.S.H on me for all those years. Well it worked!!!!!!!
