Finally the first warm spring day in March arrived. I was able to get outside and go for a run with my young pup Ruby. It was an absolutely gorgeous day. On the way home, we passed a local lake and saw a beautiful picture. The ice was melting with the sun simmering off the water. My endorphins were flowing, the sweat was dripping, and spring was in the air. It was very refreshing and reminded me that the long winter was just about over. Not only is the long winter over, but so many of the bad things about Covid are beginning to come to an end. I know there are still many challenges that lie ahead of us, and some of these changes will be with us forever, but many of the challenges we initially faced are over as well.
That ice melting on the lake reminded me that hard times, just like long winters, come to an end. There will be boating, canoeing, fishing, and good times ahead on that lake. There will be warm breezes, sunrises, and sunsets out on the water.
So look at that image. Think about your own life. What are the hard times you are/were facing and what are the challenges that you are trying to get through? The ice will be gone soon, and hopefully some of the challenges you may be facing will be too. I know it won’t always be easy, yet think about the end result you are looking for. My friend Dr. Rob Gilbert always says, “It is not what you are going through, it is where you are going TO!”
Keep rolling, and if I can help you in any way don’t hesitate to reach out! Remember, the ice will eventually melt! #survivethrive
