Feeling stretched is not a great feeling most times. We feel as though we are spread thin, we may feel as though we are on the brink of mental/ physical/ emotional exhaustion. We may have many questions going through our minds: “Why am I doing this?” “Can I do this?” “Is there not somebody else better than me?” “I wish I could skip over this time and just see the final result!”…and many more comments, thoughts, questions could be added here.
However, many a person who has been here knows that this state is vital for success. An elastic band becomes useful when it is stretched; it is useless when limp.
Stretching ourselves/ allowing ourselves to be stretched opens new horizons and also the chance to see our real potential!
So, I encourage us all today to be open to being stretched and explore new, expanded territories!!
