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.

Don't Harbor Unforgiveness

“ His mother left him and his father turned his back on him .” These words struck me like a bolt of lightening. They were words spoken directly to me. They depict a part of my life that I failed to acknowledge. A part of my life that I suppressed. A part of my life that I chose to ignore. Failure to acknowledge. Suppression. Ignoring. None of these things cause the past to flee. These things do not cause the past to change. Nor do they allow for full ability to walk into true purpose and authority. This is not an isolated story. With a human service and child welfare background, I know firsthand that this story is one in a million. But we also see it every day. If you're like me, you sometimes find your escape in movies and television series. Instead of spending time in your own realities, you spend time watching scripted realities. It's an opportunity to disengage ourselves from the characters on the screen. It's a way to passively accept or criticize the s
