Will you stop when the wind hits you?
I remember running track in high school on a windy day
and feeling fierce and fast….UNTIL……… I rounded the corner and hit the wall of wind that crushed into my face.
It stopped all momentum.
All the speed.
Completely crushed my lungs.
I wanted to quit.
In our life at some point we all meet a ‘wall of wind’ that stalls our momentum and diminishes our impact……
The ‘Wall of wind can be called many things:
It can be a loss of a loved one.
A loss of a job.
A diminish in our bank account.
An ‘F’ on that test that we studied so hard for.
The rumors that circulate in a negative manner with our name attached to them.
What will you do?
How will you respond?
Will you quit before you conquer?
Thinking back to my day at the track I remember hitting the wall and pushing through and something happened……I kept running…..it didn’t get easier, I got stronger….and eventually, I rounded another corner and the wind began pushing me, accelerating my speed, confidence and certainty that I would finish.
KNOW that the ‘Wall of Wind’ will alway be present, but know that when you round the corner…….it gets better.
