Sometimes you wake up and realize that you’re still not exactly where you would like to be in life. Maybe you’re turning 40, working in a warehouse part-time, and still struggling to make ends meet. Maybe you’ve set goals for the New Year that you find are already being postponed due to random circumstances. It would be easy to throw in the towel, or blame the Universal Intelligence for your downfall. It would be easy to accept defeat, and give up on your dreams. But we were not built to accept “easy”. If we were, we’d be able to just coast through life, without growth, simply accepting what’s given to us without challenges, and settling for mediocre. But we can’t. It’s not coded in our DNA to accept “easy” or “mediocre”. Why? We are Storm Chasers. And despite what’s thrown at us, we were designed to just keep going. No matter how much we might desire to give up, it’s not in our blood to do so. So as Jo Dee Messina so gracefully sings:
"It’s almost like the hard times circle ‘round. A couple drops and they all start coming down. Yeah, I might feel defeated, And I might hang my head. I might be barely breathing, but I’m not dead. Tomorrow’s another day, and I’m thirsty anyway, so bring on the rain."
Yes, bring on the rain, because rain is our expertise. Lace up those running shoes, and prepare to run. It’s only March, and we’ve got a lot more lives to change before the end of the year. It's okay to struggle. We're masters at it. However, if you think that you're capable of just giving up all together, know right now that you are not. I know. I've tried. If the path was easy, everyone would be on it. But they aren't. You are. So take a breathe, adjust your sails, and SOAR!
A girl just trying to find her way, stepping outside of her comfort zone, trying new things, and making new friends along the way!
