Seasonsofwaitingare61“Seasons of waiting are designed to prepare you, stretch your faith, and get you ready for everything that’s coming next.” -Mandy Hale

Have you been waiting on something to show up in your life for awhile? Maybe you’ve been working to accomplish something and you’re so ready for things to fall into place. Or, maybe you’ve been working through problem after problem and you really want things to finally work out.

Many of us (myself definitely included) have been managing through a “season of waiting”. Do you feel like it’s been a long road? I know I do. Of course it’s been worthwhile and an important part of our journey. I get that and I definitely appreciate the fact that everything really does happen for a reason.

But, my oh my! … it’s been a wild ride hasn’t it?

There have been the “highs” – those times when you felt really good and confident. You thought you were doing the right things and it was only a matter of time before things fell into place. But then things didn’t exactly work out as you planned. So, then came the “not so highs” – those times when everything felt hard. Your doubts surfaced continually trying to overshadow your faith that everything would work out.

Here’s the good news. It’s time for this “season of waiting” to be over. It’s time. It’s finally time.

You’ve gotten stronger. You’ve learned so much about yourself and what you’re truly capable of. Your faith has been stretched. Your belief in what is possible has expanded. You’ve made it through so much and every single thing that happened has led you to this point.

And, Now It’s Time.

In the past, I definitely didn’t listen enough. I was overlooking so many messages and important reassurances that would have helped relieve a lot of unnecessary worrying and stress.

It’s easy to fall into the trap of letting your Chief Negativity Officer dominate what is going on in your mind. You end up continually worrying and focusing on the wrong thoughts. [Read more…]

“It’s not the load that breaks you down … It’s the way you carry it.” Lena Horne

I think some of the toughest days are those when you’ve been going and going day after day. You’ve been working really hard and handling a lot for a very long time.

“False: When things change, I will be happy. True: When I am happy, things will change.”

Who hasn’t had a “bad” day ?

Those days where you feel drained and tired because you’ve been working and doing your best to handle it all. Those days where you are stressed out because you’re worried and wondering when things will finally smooth out and be okay. Or, those days when someone does something that bothers you and so you’re not in a good mood all day.

Have you noticed how “bad days” can build up momentum as the day goes on? If you’re not careful, you end up riding the spiral downward all day. By the end of the day, you’re exhausted and whatever was bothering you may feel even worse.

I know I definitely have had my fair share of “bad days”. I have also taken the ride on plenty downward spirals. However, I can say one thing for sure: I am so much better now at catching and managing through these days the right way. They no longer throw off the entire day. And, I have even figured out how to stay mostly centered and feeling good no matter how crazy things are. [Read more…]
