Do you find yourself in a cHalleNge, trial, or adversity that seems inSurMountAble? Maybe your situation is so overwhelming and confusing you have no clue what to do next. If this describes you, I want to eNcoUrage you with a statement that I heard months ago. The moment I heard it, it grabbed me:
“If you are in it, you can win it!”
There is nothing that you are facing that you can’t oVerCome. Not sure what to do or where to begin? Just take one step – the one directly in front of you regardless how small or insignificant it may seem. Maybe that one step is reaching out for help. Maybe it is trying a different aPproAch. Whatever you do, hang on and don’t let go! You’ll win it if you just don’t quit. :)
Have you ever said something to someone, and after thinking about it later, ReAlized they may have taken it the wrong way and got their FeelinGs hurt?
A similar situation happened to me this week in an email message, and even though I was pretty sure this person didn’t take it the wrong way, it didn’t settle with me not knowing for sure. I decided to email her back and apoloGize if I may have come across the wrong way and eXpLaiNed my reasoning for saying what I did. As soon as I hit “send” I immediately felt better. Knowing that I was able to ClariFy what had happened put me at eAse versus always wondering if I had hurt her feelings.
Picking up the phone or sending a message to clear some possible confusion or tension is hard to do but always leaves you with much Relief. I never regret going out of my way to apoloGize or make sure I’m on the same page with a person. Is there a situation you need to clear up with someone? Often times the other person didn’t take it the wrong way and bringing it up won’t only show how much you care, but also put an end to your worries!
