Having endured the challenges that recently (finally) passed me by, I have realized that I have succeeded. No matter how difficult or imperfect things have been, I have discovered perfection in each situation as it Is. When things began to get to me, I would ask myself this question, “How can I love this moment despite logic or how I’m feeling?” I would love the pain, hard work, frustration, sadness, loss. It is Love that gave me the strength to continue toward the goal, even though the goal was a sad and dreary one to begin with.
I feel that I have achieved excellence, up to now. I have achieved excellence by working endlessly and laboriously, understanding that doing it all alone was part of these particular lessons of my life, experiencing exponential growth from learning them, and rediscovering my borderline invincibility. Now I am in a space of redefining, researching and creating what is Next. It truly is up to me where to go from here.
Through all of this, I have been reminded that I AM capable of Anything I put my mind, heart and time into. And as always, I will continue to dedicate my life to serve a purpose for the greater good.
I share this because, like many others out there, I am in transition. Transition, no matter how difficult it may seem, is a GIFT! YOU get to create what is next for you! YOU get to choose! As Tracey wrote, “You are the boss!” It is up to you to dream up your goal, research it, gather your tools, and Go For It! This is a HUGE opportunity! Even though you may be up to your eyeballs in your current responsibilities, start to see what you want to do next.
Sometimes things may seem impossible, or take way longer than you had hoped. However, if you are determined, persistent and push hard enough, you’ll blast through all of the barriers, walls and naysayers. You Will Succeed! You can accomplish anything you put yourself into! Tune in to you, believe in yourself and never give up… No Matter What!
Your dreams are yours for a reason!
So, while you’re wrapping up past responsibilities in this time of transition… DREAM! While you’re daydreaming instead of doing what you’re supposed to be doing, write it down! You will find the courage to stand up, stand out and follow through the manifestation of whatever is your passion! Dedicate your life to better serve your purpose. Be Excellence! It is the most amazing feeling as you do!
Wow!! Meredith, thank you so much for your comments. It is such a joy and comfort to know I have a fellow life traveler like you nearby. Here’s to a lifetime of transitions and what they make us:-) As you so eloquently put it, “start to see what you want to do next”. The rest will follow:-)
You’re most welcome Phil. Thank you for your encouraging comments. I’ve not had nor taken the “easy” road. Like you, I’ve wrestled with challenges and what to do for years. But looking back I see that’s exactly what’s made me what I am. And now I can embrace the journey in a much more positive way.
Timely post…thank for posting. Read this post this morning after spending time with a book that your father gave me. The impact of both messages have answered some questions I have been challenged by for a few weeks.
Tracey and Charlie in one morning…..what a treat.
Thanks for all you share from your wisdom and your heart.
