She’s not your competition; Day eleven

blog headerMore and more I have come to believe that it is in a crisis we find out how much we have within us (capacity of human spirit, endurance, skills) and so often we end up surprising ourselves.

Yet when we have a chance to set out own course, we plan and pray for an easy life devoid of challenges other than those we can carefully script and manage.

When we see life as a quest to live a life of ease then competition is one of the pressure cookers we seek to avoid.

Don’t choose this path! Let the life of others, and the quest to find more within yourself, cause you to keep looking around for challenges to life.

Don’t settle down, don’t drop out, don’t retire to a life of ease…
