I used to think of an anchor as something that
weighs you down or holds you in place,
Until I learned one thing changed every thing…
You see, my very first full time job was as a singer in the Navy band.
Which meant I had to go through bootcamp.
I had never run a mile or done a pushup in my life, and now I was required to do those things (and other unexpected tasks) in order to serve as a singer!
“I made it through bootcamp, I can make it through this”
has become my mantra in tough times.
I use the strength I gained from that experience
as an anchor.
Because sailors use anchors to hold the ship in place,
but climbers use anchors to pull themselves up to a higher place.
Totally changes everything, doesn’t it?
