When I reflect back on my life, when I recall the really hard times, I think about how I was mere moments away from a breakthrough. If I was worried about a lack of work, I would get an assignment a few days later. If I was feeling upset and lonely, a friend would call that I needed to talk to. Sometimes ambiguity and uncertainty were hours away from answers. I just needed the patience and faith to wait those difficult times through.
Although it’s a struggle to see hope in the midst of heartache, sorrow and pain, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. In fact, I am certain you already walked through that door before. This week take some time and reflect on your darkest moments and then think about how you were able to get through it. Maybe the memory of your past struggles and how you overcame them will give you the courage and inspiration to help you deal with the mountain that you’ve come across now.
In the meantime, be kind to yourself. Take some time out for you. And end your week feeling inspired with these top posts.
