As I sit here reflecting on what I have accomplished on this week, I can’t help but think about the many different hats that we wear as women. That thought is what prompted this particular blog post. The more that I reflected, the more I was interested in what you have to say.
Do you ever get overwhelmed in the process of juggling the many different roles that you play in your life? I know that my life can mirror a whirlwind at times. I work full-time as an advisor and then I teach part-time as an adjunct instructor at several colleges. Let’s not forget that I have 4 children (3 of which are teenagers) that demand their personal time from me. Also, I am very involved with my church ministry and volunteering in my community.
With all of that being said, there is one thing that I do realize. All of those different roles are essential to the person that I strive to be in life. Number one, I want to be an example and role model to my children. I want them to know that they can excel in every area of their lives. Most importantly, my relationship with Jesus Christ shapes and guides everything that I do in life so my spiritual life is crucial to my success.
The truth of the matter is that no matter how tired I get, I cannot give up and I won’t give in. I realize that my life is an inspiration to someone and if I give up that person may give up.
I want to send that same message to you on today. You cannot give up no matter how hard things get in life. I know that sometimes it may seem as if you are losing the battle because you are trying to keep so many things afloat. The truth is that as you overcome challenges and hardships in your life, you are proving to someone else that it is possible. You are helping someone else to hang on for dear life.
I want to encourage you on today: hang on for dear life. Keep pressing forward because someone else’s future depends on your success.
As I stated earlier, I am interested to hear what you have to say concerning this issue. Who or what encourages you to keep pressing forward in spite of the difficulties and challenges you face in life? How do you overcome the urge to throw in the towel?
Remember, success is not an event but a journey. Embrace the journey and make the most out of every single day!
Inspiring You Forward,
