Drop At A Time

When we live in Truth, we understand that what other people do, say, think, and are doesn’t have to influence us unless we let it. That means we don’t have to compare ourselves with others. Being true to yourself never involves competition with others or any form of comparison. When you live in Truth, you know you aren’t supposed to be like others. You also know that each of us has a distinct path that is all our own. It doesn’t matter what other people are doing or how far along their path they are. Being true to yourself means you learn what you can from others without comparing or competing.

Fulfilling your destiny is not about being better than anyone else. Fulfilling your destiny is about being better today than you were yesterday. And it doesn’t have to be a lot better. Life is a process. One drop of water at a time fills a bucket, and being one drop better today than you were yesterday brings you one drop closer to your goal! Rejoice at every drop instead of sulking about not having a fire hose!

Life isn’t a race. It’s a journey. It isn’t about how fast you reach the finish line. It’s about how much you learn and grow along the way. Look around to see what there is to see. Learn what you are supposed to learn from your situation. And enjoy every little drop of growth.

I think this is one of the most important lessons we can learn in this life. This was also a very well-written post--and a concept most of us need to be reminded of often. Thanks! :)
