Puzzled by Details?

by Rob Zwemmer

 

"Nothing is particularly hard if you divide it into small jobs." 
 
~ Henry Ford 
 
PUZZLED BY THE DETAILS? 
 
Ever felt overwhelmed by the details? Like there are just too many little things to be done on the way to something big? If you haven't tried one recently, think back to the last time you tackled a 1000- or 5000-piece jigsaw puzzle. 
 
Pursuing your goals is like opening up that box and dumping out all the pieces. You concentrate on that picture of the completed puzzle on the front of the box. You start sorting out the pieces according to what part of the puzzle they'll complete. You spend endless hours diligently working, but you know you'll never finish it unless you are enjoying the process of piecing it all together. 
 
Small successes inspire you to continue. Maybe you have a "team" of others who help you put it together, or maybe you enjoy working alone. If you have a lot of responsibility at work, and are expected to run the show and perform without constant supervision, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. But remember as you work that you carefully place one piece at a time, and you know that you are in charge and that you will enjoy the fruits of your labor. 
 
Taking care of the little things can be extremely satisfying, especially when you know that's what it takes to keep the operation going and progressing toward your goals. A study published in Human Kinetics (Orlick, 1998) actually showed that "life satisfaction" is 22 percent more likely for those with a steady stream of minor achievements than those who express interest only in major accomplishments! 
 
So keep at it - one piece at a time - with an eye toward the big picture. Enjoy the pleasure from all of your accomplishments, remembering the unattributed phrase, "True worth is doing each day some little good, not dreaming of great things to do by and by."

Olive Crest: Inspiration Through Art

by Olive Crest

Jacob:  A Life Transformed

It was evident that Jacob, 16, had a gift for drawing when he arrived at Olive Crest. He had learned from a young age to turn to drawing in order to escape from the harsh realities of his life. Recognizing his immense talent and how much art helped Jacob, Olive Crest provided sketch pads, pencils, charcoal, and an easel, encouraging him to express himself using his talent. When he was invited to exhibit his own work for a silent auction at an Olive Crest event, Jacob's face beamed with joy and astonishment. He was floored when one of his drawings was purchased, and he was awarded $1,000 to pay for art classes and supplies. Now, more than ever, Jacob is motivated to learn more about art and encourages fellow Olive Crest kids to never give upon their dreams.

Olive Crest: The Gift of a Forever Family

by Olive Crest

Abbagail & Ricky - Lives Transformed

The Gift of a Forever Family

After seeing the struggles of abused children, the Cooks wanted to make a difference by adopting at-risk children into their home. Their first child, Abbagail, came to them as a shy, quiet, and very small three-year-old who was hesitant to interact with others. She had witnessed domestic violence and survived sexual abuse. Next, the Cooks welcomed Ricky, an 18-month-old baby boy who had been neglected by his very young and struggling mother.

Through the Cooks' gentle care and unconditional love, both children have flourished. Abbagail has blossomed into a very intelligent, happy young girl who loves participating in cheerleading, soccer, and dance. Ricky is now an active little boy who has developed a very sweet, energetic personality. He loves interacting with adults and children alike.

The Cooks have truly demonstrated the healing power of family to Abbagail and Ricky. Though there have been challenges that all parents face, as well as the unique hardships of children who have come from abusive homes, the Cooks have always committed to being loving parents to Abbagail and Ricky, and have given them the gift of a forever family.

by Rob Zwemmer

Safe from his past, free to look forward...

 

Fifteen-year-old Samuel had suffered unspeakable abuse at the hands of his dad. Although free from his father, he was not free from his childhood. Samuel was abusing his younger brother and threatening his mother. He couldn't function in school and threatened to hurt himself. As a result, Samuel was removed from his home and placed in a specialized group home to address his psychological challenges and violent behavior. He was diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder.

Through Olive Crest, Samuel benefitted from a range of services, including family counseling, behaviorial interventions with a specialist, and a team that responded to every crisis. Meanwhile, Olive Crest assisted the family in moving to a safer neighborhood and amore appropriate school setting. One year later, Samuel is living safe at home with mother and brother. He is attending a fantastic school where he continues to receive services from counselors specially trained to help children with mental health challenges. Through the collaborative efforts of Olive Crest staff, his family, and his school, Samuel has come a long way and has a future that is now wide open.

You Are Unique!

by Rob Zwemmer

 

Think what a remarkable and miraculous thing it is to be you! Of all the people who have come and gone on the earth, since the beginning of time, not ONE of them is like YOU!
No one who has ever lived or is to come has had your combination of abilities, talents, appearance, friends, acquaintances, burdens, sorrows and opportunities.
No one’s hair grows exactly the way yours does. No one’s finger prints are like yours. No one has the same combination of secret inside jokes and family expressions that you know.
The few people who laugh at all the same things you do, don’t sneeze the way you do. No one prays about exactly the same concerns as you do. No one is loved by the same combination of people that love you – NO ONE!
No one before, no one to come. YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY UNIQUE!
Enjoy that uniqueness. You do not have to pretend in order to seem more like someone else. You weren’t meant to be like someone else. You do not have to lie to conceal the parts of you that are not like what you see in anyone else.
You were meant to be different. Nowhere ever in all of history will the same things be going on in anyone’s mind, soul and spirit as are going on in yours right now.
If you did not exist, there would be a hole in creation, a gap in history, something missing from the plan for humankind.
Treasure your uniqueness. It is a gift given only to you. Enjoy it and share it!
