A gentle reminder
The challenges of the day should be embraced. This is how we get to test ourselves and be prepared for the next level in our lives. Maybe, there is no food for today, no money for today, and dire straits aka tough times are looming near. Your back is up against the wall, and you are flustered. At that moment stand up, and walk away from that place where you are. Take a few steps, and look behind.
Now you can walk forward. Where you were is not where you have to be. You just made a choice. It may seem like a small step, but it was a big move.
When we were growing up there were days there was no food, buts somehow my mother could prepare a meal with rice and margarine, and it tasted like fine cuisine. There were days when we lived on hope and a prayer. We lived, we grew, we overcame our challenges. Yes, my mother was employed as a teacher, but there are many who are employed living in a state of poverty. There is a cost to living and a cost to working. For many, the very basic necessities are not covered with the minimum wage or their basic pay, yet they work. They get up and go out to work,because the possibility of being in a worse present is worth the sacrifice. It is but for a short time. Something else is on the horizon, and being out there makes it easier to be seen, and distinguished. I can attest to that. Look at what hope and a prayer and action is able to do each day. We - my sisters and I, all lived and grew up. The moments of our deepest struggles can be the fuel needed for the biggest battles to be faced. Victory is greatest when you move beyond into what may be only a dream and a wish to be uncovered.
Live each day, and love each moment.
I hope these words will inspire you today. Thank you for reading, your comments and sharing to those you hope to inspire by these words.
