Can you see how one path is getting
darker while the other path is getting lighter?
Which path will you take?
As the weeks wind down to the end of summer it would be wise to ask yourself how did you spend the past 6 weeks? What did you learn about yourself that can help you be the best you possible?
Simple yet profound questions. Whatever your answer there will be a consequence. Consider, if you make the wrong conclusions about what you have learned you are bound to stumble and fall with potentially serious consequences.
However, if you come up with the right conclusions on what you have learned then you will know doubt grow by leaps and bounds. Remember, to seek out counsel from WISE people. People who REALLY want you to succeed. Be forewarned that just because a person smiles at you and says nice things does not mean they like you or have your best interests at heart.
There are many people looking to take what you have earned and sabotage your works out of envy or jealousy. We defined the differences between those two words in previous discussions.
So, STOP……REFLECT…….MEDITATE ……and ask the questions on who, what, where, how, why, when, to fully dig deep into your inner most person.
You may or may not like what you see. But that is all part of the growing up process from adolescents to adulthood. To quote my Aunt Susie you don’t need to be a rocket scientist to see that “the world is going to hell in hand basket”. But when you think about it and look around and watch the news and do some deep research you will come to the same conclusion. Everybody is just tra la la la laing all the way to the grave.
So this is not Johnny Rain Cloud, trying to dampen your dreams! This is Mr. Sunshine trying to help you push those dark clouds away.
You have half the summer left to do some real growing. Be courteous to everyone. Be thankful for the beautiful sunsets that are painted for us each evening. Be grateful that our creator made us so we do not get tired of seeing blue sky and green grass. When is the last time you woke up and said, Oh, I am tired of a Blue Sky and Green Grass? NOT GONNA HAPPEN.
Its summer, we all look forward to this every year.
So enjoy…… and always remember to BE THE BEST YOU.
