Urgent

As I was preparing my dinner plate this evening, I was thinking about how I was going to repond to today’s word of the day.  I almost left the dinner table to go start typing my response to today’s blog, and then I realized, is anything really that urgent?

Is it really that urgent to wash the dishes or throw a load in the washing machine or dryer instead of sitting down to enjoy a meal with your family?

Is it really that urgent to make a phone call  instead of reading a book to your children?

Is it really that urgent to get to where you are going and have total silence in the car instead of leaving early enough and being able to sing a song with your children ?

Is it really that urgent to finish a home or work project immediately instead of taking breaks to drink water or eat a meal, instead of checking your blood sugars, checking your blood pressure, checking your heart rate, exercising for 30 minutes, or putting your feet up as prescribed by your doctor to control swelling in your feet?

If we plan accordingly, prioritze efficiently, and act in accordance of being in the best possible health possible while living your dreams and accomplishing your goals, then is there really anything that urgent?

 

From my heart to yours,

Candle: It may only light part of your way

Candle
You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step -Martin Luther King Jr Waterloo, Ontario Submitted: Chalkthoughts

A candle may only light your first step.  Continue to believe that things will work out for your good as you pursue your journey to personal growth.  We may not see what is ahead of us, and many people who have accomplished their dreams, their calling ( Florence Nightingale, Thomas Edison, Andrew Carnegie,  Oprah, Deepak Chopra, Michael Beckwith, Napoleon Hill, Wayne Dyer, Jack Canfield,  and many, many, many others listed in history books and those who have not been listed in history books), had their doubts, their naysayers, and moments of darkness.

Many of those individuals listed above had just a small flicker of faith to dream, to persevere, and to put in the hard work necessary to make their dreams come true.  They followed their lit candle and without seeing the whole picture or even understanding their calling, they continued on.

Trust yourself and believe you are on your journey for a reason.  The only person who may believe in you along your path may be you.  It’s not about others. It is about you and what’s in your heart…..your calling!  Some people may need to see results before they  believe in someone or something.  You, on the other hand, have faith, and faith is not about being able to see the results first.  Believing in yourself may just be the lit candle that you need to persevere  through your life’s journey.
