We are to lighten the paths of others, especially in times of great darkness….we can only truly value the light when we’ve experienced darkness.
“…a tree has many limbs and many leaves, there are few roots.”
…events bring with them the potential for growth, elements of fear, joy, sorrow. One thing is certain: you will be changed. You can also become stuck. Whichever you choose is clutch.
On any given day ANYONE and ANY TEAM can be beat. Just ask Ryan Lochte! Great coaches, great athletes, successful people innately know this. Isn’t this the bedrock of the Olympic Games and why we love, participate and observe sports with such excitement and hope?
Are you hot and bothered? Are people irritating you more than usual? Maybe you need to strip down and lighten up! You may be hauling around a ball and chain you’re not even aware of.
There is a fine line between never giving up and letting go….So how exactly do you let go of control?
Whether we are so absorbed in the tasks at hand that we imprison ourselves, or whether unforeseen and uncontrollable circumstances blow us off course, when we are clicking on all cylinders, doing what we’re born to do, detours are unwelcome annoyances at the very least.
Are you doing what you’re doing for the love of doing it, or is it just a job? Many receive callings but few callings are chosen.
“To love what you do and feel that it matters, how could anything be more fun?”
We can all work to become A+ players. And that is accomplished by continuous challenge and improvement. Who’s challenging and coaching you? And who are YOU pulling UP in your wake?
If it took God more than a few days to create the world, can’t we cut it a little slack?
All this fast living has made us into an impatient people who are fearful and frustrated with uncertainty and all things we cannot control.
There are valuable lessons to be learned and blessings to behold through the gifts of the present if you’ll just embrace patience, uncertainty, surrender and that four-letter word we all hate, WAIT!
In the WAIT through uncertainty are the blessings of ROMANCE, MYSTERY, JOY, REVELATION, and DESTINY.
