March Madness - Day 28


Believe in yourself! You are enough!

Tenacity.

Determination.
Commitment.
Passion.

Many of us set goals for ourselves. We start off strong. We're excited. We say we're ready. We make a plan to achieve the goal. We set benchmarks.

But then something happens.

The plan doesn't go the way we thought it was supposed to. We miss the benchmark.

What happens then?

Many of us second guess ourselves. We begin to question whether we set the right goal. We start to wonder if we're enough. We start to wonder if we have what it takes.

For some of us, our confidence is so shaken that we give up. We throw in the towel. We abort the mission.

But why?

I venture to say we forget who we are. We forget whose we are.

Truth is, nothing should shake our confidence. After all, Psalm 139:14 tells us that we "are fearfully and wonderfully made."

We were created for success. We were destined for greatness. We were born to soar.

No matter what comes up against you, stand firm. Be like a tree planted by a river. Be immovable. Bend but don't break.

Revisit your goal.

When you are tired, push.
When you are weak, push.
When doubt sets in, push.
When you are let down, push.
When frustration takes over, push.

Push past fear. Push past pain. Push past disappointment. Push past ridicule.

When you fight the good fight, you remind yourself of all that you're capable of. You remind yourself that your battle is not yours to fight alone. You remind yourself that you are enough.

          YES, YOU ARE ENOUGH!

Believe that for yourself. Others will be have no choice but to fall in line.

A Small Tear

I could barely see. 
My eyes felt itchy and irritated. 
I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee. 
I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me. 
I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point. 
When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses. 
If only I would have recognized the signs sooner....
The left lens had a tear. 
Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge in the comment section.
