Soul Sunday

 It always seems impossible until it's done. 
~Nelson Mandela

Sometimes life can feel overwhelming, and it may feel like the bad outweighs the good.   Like we are being given too many challenges to face.  The feeling of knowing what to do, how to handle such moments, finding answers and solutions can elude us.  Leaving us feeling even more overwhelmed. 

But maybe that's what the soul needs.  Often times it takes challenges to put in motion change.  Change essentially breeds growth.

So when something in life, or life itself feels overwhelming; when the bad feels like it outweighs the good, when things feel impossible.... it's those very moment in which we need to push through for awhile, take small steps, make small changes and soon enough all those things will feel less overwhelming, better even good and not so impossible. 

Step by step one can get through's the truth and we simply have to believe it.  In the end, the people who succeed do so because they were crazy enough to believe they could.

Some of the most accomplished and successful people have been discouraged and hurt. They have gone through incredibly painful, tough times.  They have had their hearts broken and their hopes dashed. They have missed opportunities, had regrets and made mistakes. Their lives have not always been easy or perfect; they have endured sadness and worry, and have been confused and alone. 

And these very same people have gotten up each day and asked themselves now what? And the answer to that question has taken them to some beautiful, incredible and wonderful places.

Start by doing what is necessary, then what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible. ~St Francis of Assisi
