Wanting and Receiving…

“You get what you give”

Do you ever feel sometimes that life has passed you by?  You know, what you often witness in the happiness of others.

Could it be that you have settled?  Meaning, you have stop making difficult decisions in personal growth.  Those areas of personal relationships, physical fitness, financial independence, personal enlightenment, etc.

Yes, it can seem comfortable where you are now.  That is the magic of youth; seemingly endless opportunity and time.

If you are true to yourself, only you can know this; you will find that you have cheated yourself for greatness at many levels where one day, you will relish with profound pride or like many, regret!

The graduation picture, which I guess most will understand is a major milestone in a young Army persons career, bodes a great example where the hard decisions to push past ones challenge is so revealing.  Viewing this will certainly give notice to some values you might have placed on a shelve; my hopes, to be awaken and nurtured again.  It is my belief, you have a Ranger like Warrior waiting for your orders to Lead the Way!

Granted, not everyone will pass the extremely high and demanding selection process; but, I share this with you because of the heartfelt similarities I’ve witness in the many displays of your life’s struggles and triumph here on this social media all to give you some hope. I was the shortest and lightest of all and somehow, I made it! 🙂

In short, it is my humble opinion that you get out of life what you give into it.  Enjoy!
