The Blessing of Forward Sight
As Far back as I can remember, I have always had this ability which I call a gift. Thinking back, I recall using it in the 8th grade pretty regular. I played football and that is the year that the coaches became hard nosed and practices were no longer social occasions. I was not the greatest at running. I hated it and it hurt. But I never quit because of it. I knew that if I stuck with it, the running would be over eventually. That is how I kept my head in it. I still have the gift of looking forward at the end result to mitigate my current situation and my attitude towards it. For example, I am burned out deluxe on school. I been going for forever and now that I am no longer in the paralegal program taking classes that interest me, I feel it even more. However, at least once a week, I remember that if I can make it through this semester, only 9 more classes to go! I get all giggly just thinking about it! That is what keeps me from throwing my hands up and saying screw it waaay more often than not, I promise you.
