||Motivation Time|| 💪⏰Isn’t it ironic, I’m just about to head to bed, but thought this is worth a share.
Today I drove past an old worn out chair sitting on the side of the road, it was dilapidated! You could almost see the contures of the owner chiseled into its mangled carcass. The first thought that popped into my mind was, “How much time did they spend on it?” With thinking the best of the people and taking into account many different scenarios; It’s picture didn’t pose as a judgment to be made on the owner, instead it posed as challenge to me. A pair of worn out shoes then popped into my imagination. They signified distance and a doing, persevence, courage & accomplishment.
I know the couch is a place of rest and as a mum, wife & friend, it can be a close companion, but suddenly I saw its negative side. It suddenly presented as a place of complacency, procrastination, dead dreams and fear. I pondered further; if these two items were shown to my children when I died and the question was asked to them; “Which best describes your mum, the Seat or the Shoes?” How would they answer? What would I have wanted my life to remembered by? As you have probably perceived; The Shoes. I want to have not taken my liberty and permission to rest as an excuse for lethargy and to give into fear of failure. I want to inspire my children and those around me that your destiny is a YES away. That courage is in you to be unlocked. That hard work is necessary but grace is sufficient and support available. That there is an intentional body, mind and spirit pursuit warranted to fullfill your purpose. That the terrain can be rough but the tough give timely response to its beckoning.
Can I encourage you, that those dreams that you carry are there for a purpose and you have a call to walk it out in your lifetime. GO FOR IT. For those who are in the thick of your pursuit, KEEP GOING, don’t give up, the best is yet to come. It’s not just your personal success that is on the otherside of your YES, it’s everyones! Be the inspiration you are called to be.
