Sometimes, when I’m in the thick of life, I’ll hit patches that seem impossible.
When my newborn baby is up every hour all night for days straight. A good nights sleep seems impossible.
When I am on the 4th mile of a 6 mile run and it’s pushing 90° at 10am. Making it back home upright seems impossible.
When my husband and I have the same argument for the third time this month and I feel frustrated. Hitting our golden anniversary (50 years – my personal goal!) seems impossible.
When we face the challenges of a second newborn with the busyness of a toddler. Plus working 40+ hours a week. Managing it all (and doing it well) seems impossible.
When I look at my to do list and there are things on it that I have been there for months. Finding time for everything seems impossible.
When I’m faced with “impossibles” I look back and remember that when I thought it was impossible, I made it through. We made it through that stage of infancy/childhood. Or we worked through the argument.
I need to remember that I’ve succeeded when I thought I couldn’t. And use that to push through my current “impossibles”.
