What’s on the other side of your wall?
Do you ever feel like your life is a little out of balance and there is something just on the other side of the wall that you can’t quite get to that will bring everything back together? In your mind you are sorting through what is out of whack, but the stress of trying to figure it out is often the very thing that is keeping that balance from coming to fruition. Ninety per cent of life is good, but there seems to be that last major hurdle that is standing in between an incomplete life and a fully complete one.
The normal course of life is to ebb and flow. We make mistakes along the way, hopefully learn from them and move on. Each of those moments becomes a stepping stone to the puzzle pieces that all come together to layout our life plan. Often we repeat the past mistakes and fail to learn the lesson that life is trying to teach us and it takes additional tries to finally overcome that which seems to be holding us back. We can reach the point where we believe we finally have it figured out and life deals us one more blow that we are forced to handle. It can be related to our trial, or something totally different.
Many of us have things in our lives that have helped shape the people that we have become. Some good, some bad and some that had such a profound impact that we find ourselves dealing with them all throughout life. Some things are dealt to us when we least expect it and we find ourselves facing a new challenge that we might have never imagined would come. It is at those moments that the life forces of those around us, surround us to help give us the strength that we need to make it through. The reality is that we do make it through. We discover an inner strength that we never knew we had and persevere despite the difficulty being thrown our way.
It is not uncommon to feel like what is on the other side of the wall is unreachable. However, when we start to chip away at those bricks one by one, eventually the light starts to come through and that which we need begins to reveal itself. It is not an overnight process, but if we find the courage and strength to see it through, the reward on the other side of the wall can be more than we ever imagined.
