March Reflection // A Chance at Growth
I knew by the end of February that March would be a tough month for me this year.
(LOL IT NEVER ENDS OH MY GAWSH)
I had a dilemma the first two weeks of March and I just did not have the resources to make a smart decision happen - or so I thought. I was making up all these excuses not go to something that I thought wouldn’t be of value to me and what I ended up with was a missed opportunity. I felt terrible for the rest of the day and I felt like I’d just screwed up my future (I know, a little dramatic but still). So after this terrible feeling of failure washed over me, I decided to seek guidance and promised myself I would jump on the opportunity, if it ever came around again…
By some miracle, the opportunity did come up again and I tried all I could to find resources to get me to this job that was about 3 hours of total travel time away from me. If you’re on a very tight budget, travel time and resources just become THE most precious things (these gas prices are no joke, man). I was able to acquire the transportation that I needed and make it on site. I learned so much about myself and how well I do in front of a rolling camera. I definitely have some growing to do and I am so glad I took this second chance as an opportunity to keep moving forward.
From whatever place of absence you are coming from, acknowledge that you’re there and make decisions that will benefit you in the future. Sometimes it might feel like you might be wasting the little resource you have. Sit down and think about it, make a list of all the the things that you can take from an opportunity and decide to help yourself.
I pray that you find the courage to put forth the effort in reaching a goal and/or making your dreams come true. I hope that we both keep that courage to face the obstacles that lie ahead that want to hinder us from doing something great with our lives. And lastly, I hope and pray that you are surrounded by people who have good intentions for you and genuinely look out for your well being because this world is tough and not everyone who gives you a smile will have the best wishes for your heart.
2019 has definitely proven itself to be a year of growth for me. It has been a blessing to have been able to survive another month, and I pray for more strength to fall over everyone this April… because Goodness knows how much we all need a little breather.
