Paralyze resistance with persistence.

There are times when the world can feel like a crazy place. It can feel unpredictable, unstable and seemingly unfair. Several people have been impacted by challenging conditions such as lay-offs, illnesses and other anomalies which have forced them to make choices they never anticipated.
In the face of such adversity, there’s been no better time than now to seek the empowerment which can be found in our ability to choose. It’s vital to push through “what is” if we’d like to catch a glimpse of “what is possible”. Easier said than done, right? No, not really. I’m not immune to the tough times that have stopped some people dead in their tracks and left them at a crossroad. While hiding under my duvet is a tempting option on some days, it won’t get me to where I want to go. In the words of Sean Combs, “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop”.
Conceding to “what is” can paralyze our ability to dream and to see the good that can be salvaged from the rubbles of hardship. If tears are threatening to fall and you feel like your grip on life is a bit slipping, remember that this is just a moment in time. What you decide to do with the next one can make all the difference.
This post has been dedicated to those who are in the midst of a rather trying time.
I’m thinking of you.
Until next time, friends.
