“Never dwell on one obstacle too long, for tomorrow is another day.”

Last week at this time, I was feeling depleted and fatigued – and I still had several high paced days ahead of me.  The frustration was . . . mostly dealing with unkind people.

Everything worked out fine, eventually.

Interestingly, I realized that I gained strength, even as I pushed through; determined that I would not allow the limitations of others to limit me.  The crazier it seemed, the more determined I was to stay the course.   I persevered until I accomplished what I wanted.

In reflection, I realized how essential my internal dialogue was to my success.  Allowing myself only limited “Whine Time”, I stayed on task, confident that life was “unfolding as it should” – bumpy and frustrating, at times – yet “unfolding as it should”.  Love Desiderata!

My choice:

“The world is full of idiots!”


“Caring, respectful, appreciative people are my majority.”


“I’m never going to find what I need.”


“I’m not asking for the impossible.  What I need is out there waiting for me.”


“What did I do to deserve this insanity?”


“Persistence trumps resistance.”


So I’m here today to simply encourage you that if your day is a bit rough, “Never dwell on one obstacle too long, for tomorrow is another day.”  Persistence does trump resistance!
