Be Patient

It can be hard to wait for things to come to fruition after working hard for them. It’s not always easy to see how or if your dreams are coming true. I believe that there is a greater plan at work that we can’t always perceive with our human senses. Be patient and keep swimming. If you’ve done your part, the seeds will begin to grow. You can’t always see the heights they will grow to when they have just begun to sprout. Be patient and steadfast.

Not Giving Up

When you have your sights set on something, be it completing a goal or finishing a task, don’t give up. Keep going, keep working, keep striving towards your vision. Fearful inner voices may try to convince you that your vision is impossible. Do not listen to them!

Instead, listen to your higher self, your God self, your heart. It will keep shining like a guiding star in your most lost moments. It will carry you to completion. Your heart has your true interests in mind, not your fears. 

If you feel like giving up, keep going, and know that your time is coming. 

Going through the Tunnel

My two-year-old daughter has lately been surprisingly interested in watching videos of railroad handcars and railbikes. I’ll admit, they’re soothing and interesting (our favorite is this one). We’ve watched them after reading bedtime stories for the last few nights in a row. In one video, a man riding a railbike approaches and enters a very dark train tunnel. Approaching the tunnel looks a little scary – no light inside, and no telling where he will end up. 

It’s a lot like birth. And a lot like major transformation.

Tunnel moments in life are tough. These are the times when you can’t quite see ahead of you, can’t see behind you, and can’t leave the path you’re on. You are set on the path, it’s leading you somewhere- but where? It can feel lonely and confusing. It can feel like you’ve lost your way. It can feel like you have no idea where you’re going. 

If you are in a tunnel moment in your life, don’t give up just because you can’t see the end. There is light at the end of the tunnel. There is hope. There is redemption and peace and love. It can be hard to remember in the middle of the tunnel, but you must keep going. The other side is there, even if you can’t see it yet.
