BelieveDo (ch 24) – Lean into the Wind

…adapted from Believe. Do. And Follow Through!

Chapter 24

Sometimes, you have to just turn around and face the storm; lean into the wind; and push forward.  Drops of rain might sting your face; flurries of life might blind you.  YET, while the world around you shouts that you can’t make it, if you lean into wind, you will.

Stamina gets developed when we stand firm and continue to fight for what we know is right.  One of the ways to find peace in our lives is to do what we know is correct, work hard, and enjoy rest.

We all get tired and grow weary.  When that happens, rest – whether it’s for a few minutes, a few hours, or longer …rest.  It’ll rejuvenate your body, your mind, and your spirit – all of which will give you a renewed perspective on your job, project, or life.

You’ll come back full of spunk and fire.  The gleam will return to your eyes, and you’ll be able to handle most of the things that life throws at you.

One of the fastest ways to raise your spirit is to listen to your favorite music.  It brings up positive memories and replaces dreadful images with things that put a smile on your face.

It’s not possible for your heart to be full of joy and not have a smile on your face to match.  One automatically happens with the other – sort of like pedaling a tandem bike.

We are all able – because we were made so.

“It doesn’t matter what you’ve heard –
‘Impossible’ is not a word –
It’s just a reason for someone not to try.”
-Kutless

Lean in.
