When it comes to overcoming personal hurdles, I find the trust factor my biggest obstacle. To trust in the unknown, in the creative energy of life is rather eerie as I’m the type of person who aims to be in control of outcomes and plans in general. Lately, as many of you have known, I’ve experienced a bumpy rollercoaster with job seeking and numerous rejections. I admit that this process (and its “dark side”) had instilled a rather unhealthy mindset and attitude to the point where I’ve caught myself questioning my own potential and worthiness. Yet, somehow and someway, this entire experience makes sense to me with a novel, open mentality.
This refreshed outlook on my own professional life resulted from the simplest, yet impactful, bible verse to Trust in the Lord. Upon reading this verse on a random weekday morning, it dawned on me that my entire thought process was completely out-of-scope with my desirable attitude. I simply needed to craft a greater, open mindset and balance my persistence and determination with patience and pure trust. This is all way easier said than done, but hey, with each new day you learn a new way to chase and create opportunities that the Lord deems best.
Ever since having this aha-moment, I’ve noticed just how infinite life’s blessings and miracles truly are. Rather than contemplating about a particular job rejection, I make the effort to just move on and trust that there’s something better out there. I, also, must admit that part of this strength in trusting with greater faith is inspired by the sea. With each visit, I always get marveled at the vast and deep nature of the ocean -it’s something that leaves me speechless. With my most recent trip to Treasure Island, I took a rather deep dive with all the beautiful miracles this day had to share. My key takeaway from this beach day entails the fact that just as dreams and goals ought to be limitless, so should be our trust in the guiding light from above.
