Week 13- Taft C.I.

“Show me someone that has done something worthwhile, and I will show you someone who has overcome adversity.”
– Lou Holt –

I looked up at the clock on the wall, and I immediately felt the anxiousness begin to bubble, like a volcano, inside of me.

Visitation was ending and the dreaded goodbye was nearing. I had just spent a wonderful four and half hours, but now it was time to say goodbye to my loved ones.

As I waved goodbye, there was this brief moment, when it felt like the entire world was being sucked into a black hole. An overwhelming feeling of total separation from everything, hit me like a Mac truck.

I exited the visitation room. I began to gain my composure as I walked into the compound.
This process doesn’t seem to get any easier and it makes me ask myself, what is it that gives us the ability to push through, regardless of the situation?

When times are tough and the situation seems overwhelming, how do we lite that internal fire that will generate the confidence to propel us through the difficult times?

While I am walking in the 100 degree plus heat, asking myself this question, what I come to realize is that our confidence to overcome these obstacles that we are experiencing in life, “comes from the Vision that we have for our future.”

When we have a crystal clear vision of where we want to go in life, and what we want from life, then the rest of it is much easier.

When this vision is imprinted on your mind, you always know why you are getting up in the morning and pushing through the day. Why, when everything around you seems like its falling apart, you continue to hold steady in faith, focusing on your vision for your future, and continuing to work harder than everyone around you.

Disciplined and filled with the desire that ignites an inextinguishable fire inside of you that causes you to believe without any doubt, that YOUR VISION FOR THE FUTURE WILL BECOME A REALITY!
