Have you ever felt like you were trying to go about things the mature way? Have you ever felt like you wanted to throw your hands up in the air and have a tantrum because things were not going your way? Have you ever felt like people were not even willing to meet you halfway, when you have already done most of the work? Have you ever felt like your good was just not good enough?
Well, hello! Long time no see. It has been a while since my last post. This is the year of transition and it seems like so many things are occurring. However, I did not forget about you. There might have been a period of silence, but there is enough great content on this site to hold you over until we meet again.
Now on to this week’s encouragement, which is all about trusting the process. Patience is a concept that many know of, but not many people understand or even practice it. How could you blame a person though, right? In this day and age, if you do not get what you want when you want it, you are ready to speak to a manager or someone of authority that can assist in getting you what you want.
It is true, we live in a microwave society and expect things to happen quickly. When they do not, we like to throw our hands up in the air, raise our voices and throw a tantrum until we get what we want. Unfortunately, we have been taught a false reality from the shows we watch to the music we listen, to the magazines we read, to the social media accounts we follow.
Life does not always go the way you want it to and acting foolish and childish will not give you what you want any faster. Not to be the bearer of bad news, but everything you THINK you want, you actually do not need. AND, everything you need, you might not actually want. However, in the long run, if you trust the process you WILL have everything you need PLUS ALL you could have ever imagined.
“Judge each day not by the harvest you reap but by the seeds you plant.” Robert Louis Stevenson
The quote above is a good depiction of encouragement for the week. Life has taught us when you do good, good things happen to you. But what happens when you do good and bad things happen to you? Does that mean you start to do bad?
Let’s digest the quote above. Sometimes when farmers plant seeds and work the land that does not guarantee a bountiful harvest right away. However, eventually, those farmers will reap whatever they have sown in due time. Timing is EVERYTHING!
So the quote simply means that evaluating all the good you have done day-by-day will leave you frustrated. However, do not fret because think of the good that you have done as little investments. Over time, you will see gains, if you just stay the course.
“Change is easy, the transition is hard.” My dad
A transition is never really easy, especially when you get comfortable. But do not forget the journey you are on will make you better than you could have even imagined if you stay the course. So do not worry my friend, you WILL and CAN get through what seems like a tough patch.
Not convinced? Just look at how far you have come. Every now and then we need that gentle reminder that trouble WON’T last forever. You have come too far to throw in the towel and to not transform into anything other than the GREATNESS you are meant to be is not up for discussiom.
My challenge for you is to continue to do the good you have been doing, take a moment to appreciate how great you actually are and TRUST the process.
