I’m making it

I thought things were tough, until I realized the strength of my shoulders. It’s amazing the weight they can withstand, even when I’m unable to. No matter how much pressure is applied, they never lose their form. I used to hate my shoulders, because of how broad they are. Now, I understand the reason for that. It was meant to not only bear my problems, but that of others. I don’t care how heavy they get, I’m always adding things to them, because I know what I can handle, others can’t. At times, I don’t know how I’m making it, but by the grace of God, I am.

A few days ago, one of my Mentee’s called me crying, because she didn’t know if she was going to “make it or not”. She has a Bachelors degree, but can’t find a job in her field, and the store she’s worked at for over five years, has kept her in the same position, store clerk. “Life is so unfair, Ms. B. I don’t see why I even try, when things are not going my way.” I laughed, not at her situation, but because she sounded just like me. In spite of everything that’s happened to her, I asked, “What has kept you going this far?” She replied, “My faith.” Then I replied, “Keep it, because it’s what’s going to carry you through.”

No matter how difficult things get, grab hold of something, and don’t let go!

Until next time my NOTE takers!
