I am in a second career in life. I prayed to GOD for a job to help others that no one else wanted--I now work with individuals who have a severe and chronic mental illness and a substance abuse issue recent past or present. I truly feel anyone can get their life back. NO EXCEPTIONS---YOU ARE WORTH IT.
“We tear things down then rebuild them stronger, we cut flowers and trees back and let them grow out again bigger, we encounter things that bring us down—everything rebuilt is stronger because we do learn from history.”
The other day I was driving (SEE Wednesday’s BLOG) and noticed a sign ‘Under Construction.’I noticed the sign previously and wondered what construction was being completed.The roadway area looked very nice and my first impression was the sign was left from a completed job.Today, the sign was in a new place farther down the road.It just seems construction is never complete—there is always something to improve, areas to enlarge or shape, and issues about us we would like improved.Our lives are the same-always under construction.
When we look at things that cause us concern—think I am under construction here—the finished product will be NEW and IMPROVED.When we have areas we are ‘not so proud of in our personality’ tell yourself, “I am under construction and will have a beautiful product when this construction project is complete.”Do not be afraid to move the construction sign to another place in your life.STEP FORWARD to help in areas of strength and accept assistance in those areas under construction.Everyone is under construction in some area of life—we love improvement.You are a FORWARD STEPPER for keeping the under construction signs busy and always looking for new things to re-build or build better.
