March Madness - Day 13

Stay the course!

"Jab. Cross. Cross. Right round kick."

WAIT....is it even called a right round kick??? (Nope, I just looked it up. It's a Right Roundhouse.😆)

Let's go back...

"Jab. Cross. Cross. Right Roundhouse. Left Upper. Right Hook."

While the instructor is explaining, so many questions are running through my head: Which arm do I jab with? Which arm do I cross with? Do I cross with one arm, then the other? Do I step before I kick? What part of my arm is supposed to be used on the hook?

Why do I feel so uncoordinated?
How in the world will I remember all of that?
How long will it take for me to have speed and momentum?
Was I crazy to even sign up for these classes? What was I thinking?

This is a normal reaction when we are placed in new situations.

When we move beyond our comfort zone, we will always experience some challenges. Some more trying than others.

How we overcome those challenges is what makes all the difference.

I am constantly reminded that many of the challenges I face, are only there to make me stronger.

Specifically, when new opportunities arise, they serve as reminders of just how much I can handle.

More importantly, I am reminded that God "is with [me] and will watch over [me] wherever I go." This first part of Genesis 28:15 sticks with me everywhere I go.

No matter the challenge, I am never alone.

I must stay the course in order to see the rewards.

It may not be easy from the start, but if I stay the course, I will succeed.

When was the last time you considered giving up on a new adventure but affirmed yourself to stay the course?

    2. It was the most invigorating experience but I learned to taking Chances is a Possibility and it is all worth it ESPECIALLY when you have a SUPPORT System that has your back and willing to fill-in in your absence.

More Than Words

It's September and you know what that means....

Wait, you do know what that means, right?!

Just in case you did not guess it, school 🏫 is back in session.  

It is the time of year of growing, planning, reading, thinking, and so much more.

This is an especially challenging year for me. I, yes I - well at least figuratively speaking, will be graduating 🎓 from 8th grade and also 12th grade. Yes, lots of big accomplishments. I'm excited and nervous, all at the same time.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books 📚 that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
