Hello and welcome back to Second Chance to Live my friend. I am happy to see that you decided to stop by to visit with me. Thank you. Earlier this evening I was going to share some thoughts on a radio program, however due to events that were out of anyone’s control I did not have the opportunity to share those thoughts. I feel led to share them in this article.
It is important to not give up regardless of what has happened to you. It is not as important as what has happened to us, but how we respond to what has happened to us.
Do not give up on hope. To give up is to say that hope does not exist. Reality is, hope never dies, unless we deny its existence.
Look for ways to use your passion — to follow your bliss. Only you can live your life.
Don’t despise the day of small beginnings. Once a seed, then a spout, then a shrub and then a tree. Trees need deep roots and that takes time. Do not give up on your miracle. You will bear much fruit. Be assured of this reality my friend.
Keep looking to develop and grow as an individual in your body, soul and spirit. The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Keep walking and before long will see how far you have come on your journey. Be encouraged with each step – figuratively or literally.
My Sensei shared in one of our classes, “Learn some thing new each day.”
You will learn how to combine the pieces of your experience with time. Don’t worry how the pieces of your experience are going to connect. They will!!!
