I received an email from Tyler Perry’s mailing list the other day that was so powerful, it brought me to tears. He talked about how tired he was after the filming and release of his latest movie and how he went to Hawaii to rest and mountain climb. He talked about how he did not realize how high he had climbed until he reached the top and turned around to see the view. He asked his friend when did they get so high and she responded “It was in the climb”. He went on to talk about life, hard times, working toward your dreams and how sometimes it seems like you are not getting anywhere in life. I know that I am not doing his words justice so I will actually post a little bit of his message at the end of my post.
All of us have been through something difficult in life. Rough times come in many shapes, sized and forms. They can be in relation to money, relationships, career or any other area of life and sometimes you feel like you don’t know which way to turn and where to go from there. Well I’m here to tell you, as a living witness of rough times, it gets better. You have a strength inside of you that you don’t even know is there until you need it to arise. Think back to the last time you went through something painful, something hurtful, something that you thought you couldn’t make it through…and you did didn’t you? It worked its way out, one way or the other and you’re still here, still standing, still moving forward in life. If you give up, you won’t make it through to the other side…and there is an “other” side to what you’re going through. The key is to go through it and not set up shop in the middle of it.
Don’t give it. Don’t stop moving. Don’t stop believing. You will make it through. You will come out on top. God will not allow you to fail. STAY STRONG, STAY IN THE CLIMB and MOVE FORWARD IN FAITH.
I leave you with some of the powerful life changing words from Mr. Tyler Perry…
