PUSH



Today I am linking up with Shell to "Pour My Heart Out". It's her 1 year anniversary today and you've got to check out all the links and the *ahem* prizes!

Today there was more concrete poured at my house and I wanted to write a word in it before it dried. Something that would speak to me...


Push.
When in labor, this was the word I heard most often. 

Push through the pain.
Push with a purpose.

Push with focus.

Push to bring forth life.

Take a deep breath and push again.

I could think of no better word to inspire me. There are times I need to be reminded to "Push" through each day. Days that I am weary and seemingly have no purpose; what would change if I "pushed"? Taking each day as a birth. The pains will be there, but that is what is required to bring new creation.

So if I leave you one word, it's "PUSH". Then when you get tired; take a deep breath and keep on "PUSHING". Focus on your purpose and nothing else. "PUSH"

There is the off-chance that someone will see it as a literal challenge to "Push" that area on the concrete. I will die laughing and that's good too.

Love this post and what it says about you, your determination and your sense of humor.

That's funny...when I saw "PUSH", I immediately thought of labor, but figured it was because it's what I do for a living!

Loved that I wasn't too far off the mark...and yes, keep pushing. Forging through...making a path.

Even when life is difficult!

PUSH is also an acronym for Pray Until Something Happens.

Beautiful! :)

I like the word push as a motivator. Sometime you meet with resistance, even a lot of resistance and you just have to push through it.

This is so great! Very motivating.

Also, maybe you need a hidden camera set up just in case someone tries to push that concrete!

Love the word PUSH! I have a word for this year that I am focusing on and it's BECOME but the way you described PUSH is a little more accurate to where I am right now: I suppose I have to push before I can become. Very inspiring, thank you for sharing. (@toddletoots)

This is such a fabulous reminder!

And LMAO if someone really tried to push through. ;)

Love it!

I think I am going to have to borrow your word right now!

I love this! Very inspiring!

Good for you! Inspiring and funny in one post, hard for most to manage. I'll b thinking of this when I want to PUSH my kids out the window, or PUSH my cat into oncoming traffic or PUSH my husband down the stairs.
I just have to keep on pushing.

That one little word of yours hit home with me. When I get overwhelmed I tend to freeze and/or give up. Next time I hope I'll push. Maybe I need to write it somewhere too. Like on my husband's forehead?

Heather H said...

Love this message...very timely for me (if you read my PYHO post today, you know why...I need to PUSH through right now). Thanks!

So simple and yet so profound. I so hope you post pictures if people start trying to "push" the concrete. lol

LOVE this reminder ... it may become my new mantra ;)

Pamela Gold said...

This is incredibly true in every instance of life. This post is going to stick with me for a very long time. I'm so lucky!!!

P.S. I can't wait for you to see people pushing on your driveway.
