Persistence vs. Resistance

Persistence has beaten resistance. I win!

The past two weeks have been unbelievable. It all started on January 25th, when I left Mount Dora, FL for Macon, GA. You see, that is when I started my move from Florida to Georgia.

On Wednesday the 26th, I signed the lease for my apartment in Macon. That was huge for me because it actually meant I was leaving Florida. That is something I had wanted to do for a very long time. Now, it was happening.

On Thursday the 27th, I boarded a plane to Los Angeles. I was on my to spend the week-end with one of my mentors, Dani Johnson.

On Friday, we had the Home Business Entrepreneur Workshop. What a wealth of information and knowledge for 300 of us who have businesses.

Saturday and Sunday I was at First Steps To Success with Dani. I had been before, but this one just blew me away.

Monday, the 31st, I flew back to Macon from Los Angeles.

Tuesday, February 1st, my cousin Dan and I left Macon and drove back to Mount Dora. Dan had graciously volunteered to drive a rental truck with all of my stuff.

Wednesday, the 2nd, I had two guys load the rental truck in the morning. They did a great job and Dan and I were back on the road to Macon at 11:00 A.M.

Thursday, the 3rd, the rental truck was unloaded in the morning, and Dan and I drove to Byron, GA to pick up furniture that I had bought at an estate sale. It was then I realized I’m not a spring chicken anymore. Dan and I were able to get the furniture into the truck. After we got back to Macon, I chose to get some folks to take the furniture out of the truck.

Friday, the 3rd, the truck was unloaded and returned. I spent my first night in my apartment.

Why all of this information? Because, when I was suffering from depression, none of this would have happened.

The fear I had was overwhelming. I could not give the idea of change any thought at all. It was hard enough just to live each day. Man, have things changed.

My co-dependence controlled my life. I believed I was not strong enough to handle anything that I really wanted to do.

I truly need to tell you congratulations! You have overcome! Your story is a gift for anyone in the trenches of battling depression who cannot see outside of the cave, who cannot see that anything can be different.
When I had gone through depression, I was lucky if I could switch the laundry, connect with anyone or feel enjoyment being with my kids. There are days I still catch myself feeling “proud” or “joy” and knowing that when I was “there” that would not have happened. We need to spread awareness that depression is a well overused term but not to be taken lightly and effects every area of your life. I still haven’t been completely forgiven for my failures during my depression. The first step though is to kick resistence to the curb and forgive yourself! Congrats!

Thanks Elise! I truly hope the forgiveness will come. Forgiveness was extensively discussed at First Steps To Success.

Kudos to YOU! Persistence to that nagging resistence — I know it well. But you are right! By the sounds of it, you barreled right through the hardest parts and completed your desired tasks — excellent job! It’s so good that you took the time to realize your success and write it out, specifically. Those of us who struggle with these issues know exactly how that OVERWHELM and shut down feels. It’s GREAT to hear a victory story on the subject!

It’s so good that (and important!) you took the time to realize your success and write it out, specifically. Those of us who struggle with these issues know exactly how that OVERWHELM and shut down feels. It’s GREAT to hear a victory story on the subject! Thanks!
