“The moment you wake up in the morning is the most wonderful of the 24 hours. No matter how weary or dreary you may feel, you possess the certainty that, during the day that lies before you, that anything may happen. And the fact that it practically always doesn’t matters not a bit. The possibility is always there.”
I was thinking that each day should begin with hope but be prepared for some unexpected challenges. We should be confident that we can rise above and defeat almost all of them at some point and at a minimum, end up in nothing less than a stalemate. I just cannot accept that we should end up on the losing end even if bloodied in the battle.
Very few things are insurmountable if given enough effort, thought, time, and sometimes creativity (think beyond the box or outside someone else’s beliefs). Also don’t be too proud to admit that you are temporarily stuck or lost and need some help from your vested allies (i.e., your Dad) to get back on track. That’s why God did not put you on this planet alone! You have been provided with invaluable company by virtue of the existence of your parents who will help guide you home when you are lost. Just don’t neglect those simple challenges in those 24 hours; otherwise they eventually turn out more than simple and become an unwanted occupant of the next 24 my child! Again, I was just thinking.
