Tired. Frustrated. Stretched. Confused. Annoyed. Sad. Unsure. Those are some words that describe how I have felt during some stretches over the last week. Reality is that I am fine. I just have had some pitches come across the plate that I was not looking for and was not ready to hit. In the course of life, even when you are in a good place, challenges and struggles are there. Although fine, I am a little down. But a cool thing happened today. I got a lift. I got some fresh wind. I got some Red Bull for my soul. It came from an unexpected place. I was not looking. But the lift came and I am grateful. I needed it.
Side note – the “lift” can show up in many ways, but often the “lift” shows up in the form of people. Be a lift for someone today. Encourage, love, support, befriend, value someone. You never know when you might be the the very lift he or she needs.
