Simply put, life can throw you a curve ball and you are not sure how to catch it.
Moreover, where did it come from?
What does your curve ball look like, what did you do when it came out of the field and caught you by surprise?
Well, let’s talk about where the origin of curve balls come.
I believe that curve balls come from disappointments, from expecting one thing and getting another.
They come from investing into others and being left empty because they never invested back into you.
Life throws a myriad of curves that when you are not in the right position you can miss what was intended for you to catch.
Were you supposed to catch understanding of the why?
Were you supposed to catch creativity when all resources were dried up?
Were you supposed to see that love is more than a convenience for personal need, it is the breath of life?
Maybe you were supposed to learn that difficulties come to reveal the character within.
As we journey through life we are seen in the crossroads for generational deposits. That which comes from those before us and that which we leave for those after us.
Every person has a choice, every person has a conscious to effect and affect their lives.
No one should say that the curve ball made me distance myself from home base because it was not expected, life is lived each day under uncertain expectancy. Yes, we can plan, and we can schedule for things to happen, but the unexpected will always create an opportunity for your creativeness, for your quick response (your hang-time); for you too see what you are truly made of.
These are a few steps that I have tested true for how to adjust in life when the curve balls come:
- Grab hold of it – It is here, grab the ball. You now determine what your next steps are.
- Move – something has to change. Often, we look outside for change, but it is within you.
- Challenge your fear – It is difficult walking in the unexpected, but if you stand still nothing changes.
- Embrace the change – What ways can you project this defining moment of opportunity?
- Elevate – You must rise to the momentum of where this change moves you.
What has happened, has happened. Do not allow it to diminish your light. Your plan.
Reorientate yourself to what you know and take every challenge to be-come the overcomer.
Life is not a bed of roses, but you can handle the pressures by adjusting your expectancy and catch the curve ball to new heights.
