Life is a never ending lesson. Just when you think you have it all figured out, it throws something your way that shakes your foundation and you find yourself tilting, if you have a good grip or you fall down, face down on the ground. You never stop learning, that’s what I have learned so do not be too hard on yourself if you have not as yet mastered the art of living. Like Jordin Sparks sang, just take one step at a time; live each day as it comes and celebrate the little victories at the end of every day, knowing that when the sun rises, you will have new wars to fight and so it is important to celebrate every victory because it is a never ending war.
I had gone on a break from writing. I felt I had somewhat lost myself (don’t we all, from time to time?). I have learned something here and there but the biggest lesson must be that when you are on a path and you feel lost, do not quit the journey altogether. Find tree and rest under its shade and reflect on what the journey is all about? Why did you embark on it? As long as the purpose remains clear; the vision; you will always know what the next step to take is.It fully dawned on me what the Bible means when it says that where there is no vision people perish. A life without direction or purpose can be quite depressing. Where you wake up in the morning and you do not know what to do with yourself until night fall comes. Very dangerous. Times you may have something to do but you do not enjoy it and that as well is very risky, because you find yourself asking ‘What is it for?’ ‘Why am I stressing so much?’
Begin with the end in mind. Know what the goal is; where the finish line is and this way, no matter how many bumps you get along the way, you will be able to go over them because you know what you are going for. And let the goal be bigger than you.Let it be so much bigger than you that when you think of quitting, the goal can keep you moving. It can be the wind underneath your wings.
And so for me.Why did I start blogging?What was the reason behind Imperfectous?Is the vision bigger than me and if not, how can I revise it so that it can become bigger than me? What is my goal?My purpose?I believe once I answer these questions, I will always know where to look for strength and motivation, when I feel lost and dry.
