Remind Me Why?

1684311005226713Choose your hard…You know that humbling feeling of not being able to get ahead of the rat race? I had a few too many of those days with trials I felt were over my head. Yet our little hearts can handle more than we think they can as long as we remember to BREATHE!!!

Babies have a recovery rate much greater and  faster than adults! Just visit the cardiac ward and talk with the nurses and doctors on staff and they’ll tell ya how tough those kids are! They say adults take longer to recover because we feel sorry for ourselves!!! I believe it! I feel very sorry for myself when I’m simply having computer problems!

 They’ll always be something to complain about. They’ll always be the idea of not enough or too much. The art of contentment is the goal here. To get to a point of not just “getting by” but rather “tapping in” . Tapping in to the riches of character. The character in others around you…taking time to stop and hear a story…to consider…to listen…to open up and stop the rat race of life…the shallow treading in familiar water or… the deeper we dig in a monotonous rut. So it is; ya step out…ya dream big…you go for it and when you’re tired; just remember…the pursuit of happiness is a blessing—– not a right! Hard work may or may not pay off when ya want it to but ya do whatcha gotta do and there’s contentment in knowing ya did just that with all ya had to give…tears, sweat, work and little to show for sometimes…It’s alright…you’re where you need to be in all that. So keep on keepin’ on!!!
