You're working hard at moving forward in your life; but you still feel like you‘re not making any headway.  You're at that spot where you're frustrated; not sure what to do next, and just ready to give up.

We’ve all been there at one time or another.  It’s called Life!

It can be frustrating at times to know you're moving your life in the right direction, to know you're doing the action steps you know you need to, but aren't getting immediate results.  As people we're impatient, we want results and we want them RIGHT NOW; but we may find out that the results we are getting are not the results that we're striving for.

We can get to that spot where we just want to throw our hands up and say ‘Enough, I Give Up!‘; but we know that's not the right answer either.  We are simply just frustrated with life at the moment.

So What Do You Do?

You persevere.  You keep pushing forward with faith that if you keep doing the next right action, life events will unfold as they are supposed to unfold.

Let me share my experience.

As I was transitioning from being married to being divorced, and being a single parent, there were times when I was uncomfortable with my new life.   I often felt overwhelmed with responsibilities; dealing with my emotions of being divorced as well as those emotions of my 4 year old daughter.

As much as I wanted to hold my hand up to life and say ... let me just go on vacation for one year.  That was not a reality.  I had to continue dealing with life events as they unfolded on a daily basis.

What I had discovered is that on days when life seemed so overwhelming, that I needed to reflect back to how far I had come in my new life as a single divorced parent.  Was it all a bed of roses?   No.  But it also wasn’t a thicket of thorns, either.  The fact was that life was moving on, and I was moving along with it whether I wanted to or not.

I find this gives me the strength I need to keep moving forward.  My experience has proven that if I persevere life really does work itself out.  So therefore, on faith, I continue moving forward doing the next right action I know needs to be done.

I know that this feeling of frustration will pass.  It always does.   Until it does, I simply keep moving myself forward.
