There is a magic to accomplishing a person’s ‘daily must do list’, a forward movement and achievement from a thought without action – to one of success! raw thoughts

When you take a moment to reflect on all your successes and failures you will find riddled the building block of the basic must do’s we all make. Like getting out of bed, out of the bathroom, out of your home and all those smaller steps leading to each successful day..

Balancing my checkbook comes to mind!

But, the travesty emerges when we only complete each day doing just that, tasks to maintain a level of satisfaction, meaning, just enough to get by.

Hey, there is nothing wrong with getting by! But when that is all you do for an extended period, well, a new level sets in, a lukewarm existence.

I read somewhere that an acceptable productive decision day is centered upon either a yes or no, not a maybe as you go about completing tasks. Risk comes to mind on the first and latter, no risk on the maybe or lukewarm position, at least what I have experienced.

Maybe that is why I have found no real personal growth in a life of just maintaining? Maybe if your momentary goals rests on just surviving??

A scripture comes to mind..

(Revelation 3:16 KJV) ‘So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of my mouth’

I felt compelled to share this thought with you especially during this time of ‘forced seclusion’. Easy to be lukewarm, to just maintain. The underlying truth is scary if our awarenesses is waiting for a back to what was normal instead of a new found personal truth, can there be growth in this direction?

A personal thought?

Not here to take you off your course; but only to raise your awareness that the maintenance of life is only the beginning. Personal happiness for me was always one away from a perceived comfort zone. Only you know the possibilities that await if you finally risk what lies beyond your ordinary.

To you and your journey!
