“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.” – C.S. Lewis
It does not matter what we do…things are going to happen.
How we view these things is up to us. Sometimes we find ourselves in a situation that we feel trapped, weighed down, hopeless, and that there is just no escape. Sometimes we feel like there is nothing we can do. We try and try, and try, to make it work the way it has so many times in the past…and it just does not work. We feel like we have failed. We feel like nothing works for us. We feel defeated.
Maybe it is time to change.
Maybe it is time to change what we have always done.
Maybe it is time to completely do the opposite of what we have done in the past.
Maybe it is time for us to evolve into the next stage of our life.
I know, for myself, I hit that point a few times in my life. It does NOT feel good to be at that point. That point where nothing seems to be working for you. That point of “I am all out of options. What will I do now?”. This is most people’s breaking point.
Looking back on my times, I realize now, that those times were my building points.
I began from that moment forward to build something new.
I left behind what was not working anymore and built something totally new.
In my building something new, I discovered I was building a new me.
I discovered that I evolved so much during these building times, that I built a new and better me. And this new and better me could not thrive in my old conditions. It was time to seek out and create something bold and new.
And the biggest lesson I learned was…. tough times do not last…TOUGH PEOPLE DO.
Maybe this speaks to you.
Maybe you have been there.
Maybe you are there right now.
What are you going to do?
Be like the egg….and hatch…or go bad…
Believing in all you good eggs out there,
