If you’ve ever been behind the wheels of a car on a busy road, you will notice that if you are driving slowly, pedestrians are less cautious of how they cross the road. Other drivers in a hurry cut in in front of you as they may feel you are unduly hesitant and they are in a hurry.
However when a car is speeding, pedestrians make way. They do not want to get hit. Other cars dare not cut in in front of it.
If you are a qualified and good driver and you are obeying the traffic laws and not over speeding then you are good to go.
Without enough momentum in life, others will criss cross and cut in in front of you. If you are too hesitant and slow to take appropriate actions in life, people will further waste your time and cause you to deviate.
Momentum is important to ensure that you are going at the best speed, not too fast that you injure yourself and others and not too slow that you deviate.
So gather some momentum today. Take the necessary action. Be purposeful. Make room for yourself to progress.
Life gives to you, what you purposefully demand of it.
Life will address you the way you present yourself to it.
Have a great day.
No one likes queues that seem to be going no way. We get all worked up if we find ourselves in one.
What is hard to immediately remember is that, our position in the queue is still ahead of the one who has not started their journey yet.
It is better to be in the slow lane in life than to be in no lane at all. We are always learning and growing because life is designed to be progressive but only if we apply ourselves and confront challenges and refuse to hide away or bury our heads in the sand like an Ostrich.
Life goes on whether you are aware of it or not, whether you engage with it or not. It is easy to focus on the many others that are ahead of you, to focus on how little time you have left, to focus on your limitations and the obstacles in your way. But remember, although it is overcrowded at the bottom of the road, there is still movement happening and sooner than later, if you persist, you will find yourself on a freeway, with less competition, with more choice of how fast you want to go. It’s better at the top. Join the traffic, keep inching forward, persist, get to the top! That is where you are destined to be
Trouble does not last forever. Your skies will not always be grey.
You can’t always tell the future by what you see today. Today’s circumstances may not be good indicators of the possibilities of the future.
Don’t let fear destroy your destiny. Don’t be afraid to fail so much that you get stuck in today’s circumstances. Venture out. Don’t be afraid of the loud threats, the thundering announcements of more dread ahead, the shocking unexpected flashes of lightening that destabilises your peace. Above all, don’t give up hope.
Don’t give up trying again. There are better days ahead, if you don’t quit on life, if you refuse to believe that change will never come. Soon the thundering quietens down.
Look up, there will soon be a rainbow in your sky. Wait for your rainbow sky. Keep looking up. Keep moving forward. Change is coming.
There are declarations of love, words spoken, words whispered, words in a promise, words in a beautiful card, whether from a man to a woman, a woman to a man, a parent to a child, words between friends that sound so perfect, so thrilling, so emotionally satisfying because they centre around love and how valuable and precious the people in a relationship are to one another.
When it comes to practically backing up those beautiful words, many are found wanting. It is amazing how the greatest portrayals of love cannot be fully captured in words, or on any card.
They are seen through actions taken on behalf of others. They are seen by what we physically do for others, especially others more disadvantaged or more vulnerable than we are. Others who may never be able to pay us back. Greater love than this has no one, that a man, a woman, a boy, a girl will lay down their life for another.
Kindness shown through sacrifice often undeserved – that is the true measure of love, not just words, not even words spoken so passionately and powerfully.
Hope is the invisible fertile soil which makes the seeds of long held dreams grow no matter the drought and famine conditions that exist. Without hope, the most luscious green fields cannot keep a budding tree alive. It will shrivel and die from the inside out. Life is like a tree. Hope for its future keeps it going. Hope makes the soul tenacious, enduring the impossible and staying alive and growing nevertheless. Hope will make a tree grow out of a rock. Anything is possible if we learn to hold on and not give up. Miracles happen. Somehow we do come through if we learn to keep hope alive.
