When your best just isn’t enough; when no matter how hard you try; when there seems to be no one in your corner, there is always tomorrow. In the darkest of times, we are encouraged to wait it out and have patience for something better. It is age-old knowledge that life is not always on our side, but it isn’t the end of the world. Life is composed of disappointments, unexpected as well as anticipated. As a former teacher of young people, I have witnessed the tumultuous road into adulthood. Emotions run hot and cold. Thought processes and reactions to hormonal changes are unpredictable and painful. The key is to own one's personal changes and to embrace growth. Author Stefanie Fields says in her book, Sometimes, that when life gets hard, it is okay to feel defeated…as long as you do not allow yourself to be overwhelmed.
The purpose of this easy-to-read book of inspirational encouragement is to remind us that bad times are a reality but are also temporary and can be overcome with patience and positive thought. Stefanie Fields, hypnotherapist and spokesperson for self-esteem and empowerment, writes: “Your dreams want to come true; that’s why they chose you.” Working toward a goal is filled with the rollercoaster rides of ups and downs. It is the final outcome that counts. “So during those uncomfortable, crummy, down-in-the-dumps sometimes… Just remember… Those sometimes aren’t always. And there will always be other times.” Simple illustrations support this otherwise serious message. I recommend this as a necessary read for all readers in need of encouragement.
