In today’s video (click the word “video” to see it), I’m on a walk with a brother of mine from my church. As we walk along the trail, we slow down to admire the rain drops on a bush. As I’m admiring the bush, I notice that there are berries growing on the bush. I picked one to get a closer look at them. I discover that they are blackberries and although they are growing together they are at different stages in the growth process.
This reminds me of us. We are all in this world together, yet we are all on a different journey. That’s why it’s so important not to compare your journey to someone elses. We are all given the same 24 hours. But how you spend your day has a large impact on how your life will turn out. The next person doesn’t have more time than you. They don’t have any resources that you can’t obtain with hard work. They have just chosen to do what’s best for them.
You can can get to your best self and live your best life, if you just keep your focus on YOUR journey. Feed your mind new knowledge, make a plan and take action. I believe God (or what ever you call your higher power) will “pick” you and elevate you when the time is right. Will you be ready?
I hope this motivation and inspiration is something for your situation to free and relax your mind as if you are on a vacation.
