I have seen “never” evolve into “now” a time or two. It is an unexpected beauty to behold. What it has taught me is to stay in the game. Don’t give up. What you need is almost always on the other side of giving up. Just don’t give in to that feeling of defeat. I am so grateful to have witnessed my patience pay off.
It is a process I have to apply to every aspect of my life on an ongoing basis. Patience is needed for every goal set. If you have the strength to get past those thoughts of “never” your reward will be worth all the effort. We’ve all been there; stuck in a state of doubt. Maybe you are thinking you will never reach your career goals or relationship goals. If you believe you won’t, that belief will become your truth.
Instead of living in doubt, live in determination. Exercise patience. Couple it with perseverance and watch the blessings flow. I make it a point to show gratitude even when things aren’t quite how I’d prefer them to be. The result is overwhelmingly positive. Today may not be my day but I remain grateful and patient. Gratitude and patience bring me calm and peace. When I shift my focus away from what’s not going well, the “never’s,” it allows me to change my perspective. It allows me to see how things fall into place.
Just like that a “never” can turn into a “now” when it’s least expected.
