This morning I sat discouraged, trying to figure out a solution to my problem. I had an overwhelming sense of failure and my heart was filled with disappointment. Racking my brain trying to figure out what I have been doing wrong. Why am I not getting the results that I have been aiming for?
I started to think about how I would guide a client through this situation, this rough patch. Then it occurred to me; I could throw in the towel or I could use that towel to wipe the sweat from my forehead and keeping pushing forward.
I took a breathe and I stepped back from the situation. I looked at the problem from a different perspective. I asked myself, "What have I done to fix this issue?". What steps had I taken? What would help me to move forward? Reworking the steps that I had taken from another perspective allowed me to stop stressing out and allowed me to see where I was going wrong. In other words, I was able to go around or over the wall instead of trying to go through it.
It is so easy for us to give up when times get tough. Moments of clarity hit us when we least expect them to. When we feel like we are at our wits end and are ready to break... we need to remember to hold tight, stay positive and strong. If we hold on tight to our courage and we brave the storm there are rainbows and beautiful clear sky's waiting for us.
Even I sometimes get discouraged. It is during these moments of doubt that I close my eyes and pray for clarity and strength. I write in my prayer journal and I keep my faith.
