“Are you green and growing or ripe and rotting?”
― Ray Kroc
Stagnation will cause you to rot when you were once ripe and flourishing
Life can sometimes be just like the images you see when you don’t take the time to take what’s inside and bring it to the outside to give it the opportunity to thrive. Stop sitting and waiting for someone to come pick you up out of a basket, and create your own basket. Nothing comes to a person who sits but a stench and a rotten core.
Replace your existence with persistence and watch how your stench becomes a scent that is a pleasing aroma to you and to those around you!
Say it with me: I commit to dismiss every urge to just exist!
As I wrote this years ago I decided to reevaluate some of the words. Did I see a change? Am I just still sitting and rotting or using my fruit to allow more seeds to grow?
“In the serenity and quiet of this lovely place, touch the depths of truth, feel the hem of Heaven. And when you leave, don’t forget why you came…”
― Oksana Rus
One Sunday morning she arose and dressed in her finest clothes and headed to church because she wanted to experience peace on Earth just a little bit longer
She smiled brightly at me and whispered softly in my ear “I love you” because she knew words had power
Never wanting anyone to feel less than special when they were in her presence she treated them with kindness because she knew why she came
Her time was approaching and she knew it but she wouldn’t leave the cage until the right wind could take her to the place she needed to be
As the key slowly turned and the gate began to open she began to feel the freedom of letting go…. and she slowly began to coast like an eagle
Her take off was slow because she was fighting the current to make sure WE were alright however slowly the momentum began to pick up as she went from coasting to soaring
Never forgetting why she came
So I leave you with this thought an eagle knows the purpose for which they have come
They know when to coast and they know when to accelerate…….
Today “our” eagle we celebrate your acceleration !!!!!!
