Have you ever felt like you’re “stuck in the muck”? Slogging your way through a place from which you can’t seem to find your way out of?
The path to the best places for us means that sometimes we must take a trip through the muck to get to the other side of it....sometimes that truly is the only way. When we are in the middle of it, it feels yucky, it feels futile, and can feel like such a complete waste of time, let alone not very comfortable.
When we are in painful places in life, or even just the annoyingly little uncomfortable places, it's important to remember that we are usually headed somewhere else if we want to be. We do not have to stay stuck there.
Sometimes it takes a while to work our way out of it, and sometimes we don't know how we got there in the first place, but these mucky, yucky places on the path of life are always temporary if we are willing to work our way out of them.
We are not meant to stay stuck. We are not meant to be stagnant. We are not meant to be in pain for any longer than it is necessary to teach us. We are meant to shine, to fly and to have joy. Even when we are in a place where it's nearly impossible to do this, there is always a way out of that mucky place. It is always temporary.
So if you are in a mucky spot, just keep sloshing through it.....keep going ‘til you get to the other side of it. As tempting as it might be in the moment - don’t give up. It will be SO worth it.
Thanks for stopping by!
