Here it is Monday and I am tired! I am just like you, I work hard, focus intently on what I am doing and sometimes things don't go the way I want them to go!! So then what? What do you do to refocus yourself?
Life is about choices. We all know that but sometimes it feels like we really don't have that many choices at all. Today I have to decide what choices are set before me.
I need to do laundry and refill my hummingbird feeder. These aren't really things I want to do, and I can choose to do them or not. These things are not hard things to do nor are they very rewarding things. Simply necessary things. I truly believe that the necessary things help us have a firm foundation to accomplish the things we really want to do.
I have to maintain a certain level of order in my home to be able to do anything else. I think a lot of people miss the fact that when things are out of order at home, things get out of order everywhere!!
What I want to do is get a few people excited about Health and Wellness and their possible part in it with me!! I have a burning desire to reach lots of people with the truths we have learned about how to be healthier and happier!
There are a few things that impact our ability to do this:
First and foremost, we have learned that we can't want good things for others more than they want it for themselves. We can't pull people into a better way of thinking or living, they have to be ready!! Our part is to be there once they are ready!!
Secondly, and not completely unimportant, is the fact that much of our time is spent waiting! I am grateful that I have learned that waiting isn't a mode of doing nothing! There are a lot of things that can be accomplished while waiting. There is an amazing song called, While I'm Waiting. It says, I will worship while I'm waiting, I will serve you while I'm waiting. These are two tangible things I can do in between the working!
Last but certainly not least, I must encourage myself to remember the dreams, desires, and hopes that exist in my heart. If my hopes and dreams for myself and my family are not remembered I will lose sight of my role in accomplishing these goals.
My daughter ran her first half marathon yesterday and finished well! She has always pushed herself past her weakness to run the race and cross the finish line. The finish line is different for all of us, but quitting just short of it produces the exact same results for all.
I have been disabled for almost 6 years and I have made a decision to be different! My body hasn't fully caught up with this decision yet, and there are days when the old defaults are louder than the new cheering section!
So my choice is simple, surrender to the temptation to quit knowing what that will give me or rally myself to run this race, cross the finish line and find out what prize awaits there!
Quitting needs to stop being an option!! Let's lock arms and run this race together!!
Everyone deserves "the Good Inside," and, yes, "Purity is Possible."
