Recently I’ve been placed with a few personal challenges and I feel obliged to share something on it.
For the religious people, “let go and let God”. For the non-religious “take a step back and take a breath, then go again”.
Sometimes we have goals in mind and the road is filled with many minor obstacles but we must not lose sight of what we want. Often when it seems like we are doing everything we possibly can to head in the right direction it seems like no progress is being made. It seems like a never ending cycle that just isn’t working out the way we want.
I was starting to feel discouraged, but I did not want to give up. I’m still working on what I want and I have no doubt it will happen for me, but I’ve decided a distraction is what I really need. Sometimes we say we’ve let go or we’re not studying it anymore but subconsciously it’s like a broken record skipping in our head.
One of my goals for this year was to step out of my box and do more. So I will attempt some volunteering and making the gym/exercise a regular practice and not occasionally. From this I hope to achieve some form of release. To not be able to hear the record skipping but to hear the song finish and move onto another one. And with each song that plays, there’s a skip in my step to the beat and a joy in my heart knowing that things will work out sooner or later and not in my timing but His.
Even better is knowing I have a supportive husband by my side. And even though we sometimes feel like no one will understand or we don’t have any one for support, just remember at the end of the day, in order to succeed and to achieve what you want, YOU have to work for it, work at it and BELIEVE in yourself. No one else can do it for you. Don’t let those who try to push you down or keep you down determine whether or not you stay there. Use them as steps to climb the ladder of success and proceed to eat from the tree of life and smile and say I did it. You determine where you go in life. Partners are there for support but the final decision is yours.
Be wise, and know everything is possible once you have faith.
