It is normal to look back at what we did, how we did and, frankly, how we survived!
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.
When life’s circumstances surprise, overwhelm, consume and move to control, you can be sure fear is at the heart of the chaos….. We are born with just two fears….
“…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?
There is a fine line between never giving up and letting go….So how exactly do you let go of control?
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.
It’s better to burn out like a brilliant comet than to rust out like an unused pipe.
This happy man placed service before self and, no doubt, understood his impact on the mundane multitudes he briefly encountered each day.
