Fighting Through The Fog

Have you ever driven in thick fog? I'm sure you'd agree that it's VERY difficult to see anything. It's our natural instinct to slow down, and drive with extra caution. Although it can be a bit scary, we keep on driving anyways because we have a destination to get to.

Driving in foggy conditions is a bit uncomfortable because of the unknown. For the most part, you can't see anything until you're  up close. The unknown can sometimes put you in a position where you're  unsure, scared, nervous, and so many other feelings start to surface to the top.

I would like to encourage you today! Just like the example that I just gave above, we have to keep on going although we don't always know what's ahead of us. Don't allow the fog in your life to prevent you from moving forward. You may have to slow down, rethink some things, take a different route, etc... but don't give up just because things are a bit "THICK" in your life right now.

I want you to remember this: Although you may come across some thick patches of fog, don't forget, it starts to thin out and clear in the end. Before you know it, you're back in the fast lane driving with no worries.

You may experience some difficult situations in your life, but if you don't stop, give up, or get discouraged, you will make it through. I encourage you to be determined, persevere, and most importantly, BELIEVE in you!
