Wednesday Wellness: The light at the end of the tunnel

Have you ever been working on something (a project for work, your children’s project, your mental health, a weight loss plan) and you feel like you haven’t made any progress at all? It feels like you are in a dark tunnel and will never see the light? You’re in that dark, stuffy place feeling overwhelmed, defeated, tired, and are beginning to wonder if there is a way out. Yet, there’s something deep inside you, which tells you to keep plugging along because the light IS there and you will see it soon. Your head argues that you just need to give up, but your spirit reminds you that you are strong, the other side is worth the work and once you get to the other side, you’ll be ok! If you are, or know someone who is stuck in that “challenging” place, consider where you are. Have you made progress from yesterday, a week, month, or even year ago? Usually, the answer is yes. Usually there is progress and many steps have been obtained forward. In fact, just by recognizing that you are moving forward and making headway towards your goal is a step to the other side!

In this message, consider how close you are and then take a step away and consider that quite possibly that place you are standing right now can be a little brighter just by realizing how hard you have worked to get to this place! Trust the process…the light will come through any moment as long as you keep moving!
