Sometimes I forget how blessed I am.
I forget that God has allowed me to be where I am, at this moment, with the people I am with and to experience the things that I experience. I lose sight of that blessing at times.
I received A Spark Mail from a new member yesterday – Brand-Spankin-New, she is and full of energy and commitment. She asked if I knew where she might find a series of exercises to help her with some physical issues she’d encountered. No problem!
As I read the rest of her letter I became more inspired and impressed. She’d overcome a number of challenges both physical and emotional in her life and was looking forward to being part of this amazing community.
As I prepared to answer her I thought of something the late Zig Ziglar once said.
“There are people who live their lives creating excuses by always saying “Yeah but……” Then there are the people who look out each morning at the world before them, hitch up their pants and say “Yes, IF….”
As I typed I asked myself how many times throughout my day did I use the “Yeah But….” Excuse. Probably more than I care to admit.
Life is a transformation, a process, and amazing journey. My new friend here taught me a valuable lesson through her life story.
I choose, even if it’s only for today to be a “Yes IF” sorta guy
