Have you ever gotten to a point in your life where you feel stuck? Where you feel that you’re sinking and not swimming? It’s a scary feeling, isn’t it? You’re not alone.
Yep. I feel it, too.
When I wrote the Imperfection series life had taken a crazy turn. I never thought I would finish it.
But I did.
Funny thing, to learn to swim you have to push forward. Some days it feels as if you’re moving through a wall of water at lightning speed. Every muscle screams to “go, go, go,” and you “try, try, try.” Efforts are futile because there is resistance. There is no possible way that you can go any faster. Guess what? I have news for you. You will get through it.
Did you get that?
You. Will. Get. Through.
The thing about going from sinking to swimming is that it takes effort. Patience. Literally and figuratively, learning to swim is something that isn’t easy. In every area of life, it can be a slow lesson to learn. The only way to get better at it is to do what you can for that day. It might not seem like you’re making progress. Let time pass. The result might not immediately be evident, but you are getting results. Trust me, even if the move forward is going at a snail’s pace, it will happen. Don’t give up. Results worth having take time and during the process, you may just find that you become stronger and learn to do something better than you thought possible. Just hang in there. No matter what you’re striving for, it will happen. Promise.
