Pardon me, this may be for you!

by Rod Smith

You are probably stronger than you think you are, more determined than you may appear to be, and more stubborn than you like to believe you are. 

True? Good. We agree on something.

You are going to make it. You are going to make it through these tough and uncertain times. You have been in tough circumstances before and you did it then and so you have the tools to get through this crisis this time.

People may give up on you but you will not give up on yourself. You may even offer the impression that you are giving up on yourself but you are not. I know what you are doing. You are circling around, taking in information, weighing things, you are listing pros and cons, counting costs, getting your ducks in a row.

I know you. I have met you before. I confess, I have met you within me. We are like old friends.

People have made the horrible error of underestimating you – and me.

Watch out. Here she comes, here he comes. Once the plan is in place and the proverbial trigger is pulled you will unleash more grace and kindness than you ever thought possible and you, and all those whom you love, will be stronger for it.
