Life is a Journey Not a Sprint

Life is a journey not a sprint.  You can’t win overnight but neither can you lose.  Once you realize that although life is short in time, it is abounding with possiblities.

Begin each day with the attitude of gratitude and refuse to allow the negativity of circumstances to get you down.  The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step and you win most battles in life by taking the next step.

Since life is a journey we can slow down and smell the roses, and taste the fruit of life.  If you try to race through life you will end being first to the top of the mountain but will not have anyone to share it with.

That is why the climb is the most important.  It is here where you meet friends, build relationship, form unions etc.  So when you reach the top you reach it with those you love, those who company you enjoy.

The old saying that it is lonely at the top is true, but it doesn’t have to be if you slow down and help others reach their dreams too.  May this Thursday find you not speeding toward the weekend, but reflecting on just how many blessings you really have.

Once you see the big picture, you will not be so stressed over the impossible situations you face now.
