Our lives, we live them like we are in control. We think we can make a difference. Or worse we think why bother why even try, it is what it is.
How many times have you heard that? It is what it is? And it seems like it will stay that way.
Well, however much credit we do or don’t give ourselves, it is all in vain.
The only thing we seem to be able to control is what comes in or out of our mouths. And those are the two things I struggle the most with. Over eating and over talking.
We are little ants, sorry for those who think more of themselves. But really we are teeny tiny, we are the little pieces of a much bigger puzzle. But do not let that news get you down. Could you really accept and do justice with a bigger role? I know I couldn’t, I blow my little plan every single day in some way. Whether I sleep too long and miss my morning walk (time with God and friend) eat too much sugar or bread, or loose my patience with my kids. Plus many other ways.
We are all human and make many mistakes, but we are suppose to be. We are not suppose to be perfect, but that is not an excuse to not try, try to be better than you are. Do not try to be better than others. Be better than yourself, the self you were 10 years ago, last month, and even yesterday. We need to be hard working, self improving, striving for excellence little ants.
The next time you have an issue with someone, remember they are just an ant. Don’t say it, but remember they are no bigger or smaller than you. And their opinion is not the one that matters.
When we know who we are, and where we are going, the rest of it does not matter. The little disagreements, past mistakes, I urge you to let them go. We should not be shaken, we know the end of the story.
