Have you ever had someone accuse you of thinking something that was totally untrue, and which on reflection you think is likely to be a negative trait of theirs? I have, and it’s relatively easy to see in someone else.
We’ve all been wronged at some time in our lives and it isn’t always easy to forgive.
All too often we think that we will find happiness by position, promotion, possessions, or perfect houses and families, but when we get one thing, we want more.
We can never be what others want us to be, no matter how hard we try. There will always be those in life who attempt to define us, and put us in the boxes that they want to keep us in.
I love that line from Mother Teresa’s ‘Do it anyway’ words.
Sometimes it takes a challenge to motivate me. For many months I have only written when I absolutely have to.
We all get frustrated when things don’t turn out how we hope, or when our needs are not met.
It feels good to be trusted to do big tasks, talk to important people, or take charge of entire projects, but the real proof of our strength is in our ability to do small, seemingly unimportant things well.
I don’t know how others feel, but I really don’t need teaching facts – I can read those for myself.
We all have opportunities in life but not everyone embraces them and runs with them.
