Posts Tagged ‘push through’

Things I don’t understand:

  • People who want to control others
  • Those who belittle others to look better
  • People who make snarky comments in order to feel superior
  • People who claim to be on the same team but do nothing but beat you down
  • Bullies

So… a lot of my head is in that space.  Where I have to honor myself by reaction appropriately to such actions.  I stand firmly in a place that I know my actions are correct, so all should be well.  Trudging through the murk in the meantime… it’s a bit exhausting.

Meanwhile, I am continuing my pledge to push through when something scares me.  I live about 15 miles outside of Portland, Oregon.  I work one town away, and have maybe 4 towns I’m comfortable driving around in.  I pretty much avoid freeways, and I’m not sure why.  But tonight, my middle son was to meet a friend.  In another part of the area, and I had to take him there during rush hour.  On the freeway.  I was nervous.  But you know what?  I did it.  As my son would say, I did it like a boss.  Know what else?  It quite invigorated me.

I’m constantly out of my comfort zone at work lately.  And I make it through.  My skills are increasing, and each day the difficult tasks become a bit easier.

I urge you.  Move out of your comfort zone.  Do something that scares you.  Discover strengths you never knew you had.

I took a pledge…  a pledge to do something that scares me every day this week.  Because of the nature of the beast, I’ve gone bigger each day.  And each day I am scared out of my mind.  And I push through.  do you have any idea how empowering that is?  I urge you to push on through!  The feeling you will feel afterwards is a natural high that rivals no other!

My message was going to be longer.  But… I was struck by some news today.  A friend of mine had an accident on June 10.  She now has to wait for surgery until June 27.  In excruciating pain.  The newspaper article is here.  Christine is an artist, a dear friend, a member of my tribe.  I am trying to figure out a way to send a gift to her.  I will send a care package to her, and donate some money myself… but I want to ask you, as my community, is there more we can do?

Please leave me a message.  Let’s connect.  What can we do for Christine?
