Enjoy the Quiet Time

When you’ve heard so much noise. You will want to appreciate the quietness. It’s good to enjoy what life offers. There’s so much to see and so many things to do. It’s a blessing to be able to enjoy that “family time.” Having the second oldest home and hanging out with his brothers is such a “joy” to witness. They’re happy he’s home on break. We all our. He’s trying to relax a bit and he certainly deserves it. Taking the time to breath in and out. Sometimes you have to go in “silent mode.” It can be a bit irritating having to deal with chaos and noise.

We’re chilling out for now. Perhaps watch a good movie later and see what happens after that. We did get to laugh a play around a bit. Spent time with the “King.” The road may be rough but when there’s a whole lot of time invested. It’s best to see what kinks can be eliminated. There will be those days when you don’t feel like saying too much but that doesn’t mean that one is in a bad mood. It’s just that we all need some downtime. Who doesn’t want to enjoy that “quiet time?” I certainly can appreciate and I thank God for it.

This would’ve been a good day for a movie but watching one on television will do. I’m thankful for the communication that took place and decisions to try to improve things a but. A little reading later on. Getting some of that word in me. That will help bring things to where they need to be. There’s nothing wrong with sharing our “testimonies” but sometimes we just want stand on the other side of the crowd. We’ll especially feel that way when there’s been a whole lot of head banging.

Challenges Generate Improvement

Could you imagine if we never faced challenges? We would probably stay in the same position, there would be no changes within us, and we would be miserable. Why? Because we wouldn’t be fulfilled. People are sent to us to challenge us. To motive us. We would slack off if no one or nothing challenged us.

Without struggles there would be no “growth.” There’s a lot of people who have been through the fire. Without that fire, they would stop moving, they would settle for less instead of “greatness.” We can’t go through life taking easy routes. Of course we need to take breaks but we shouldn’t ever consider giving up.

Sometimes you have to start from A to get to Z. There’s no silver spoons, no easy way outs, there’s challenges. We have to be brave and face them. Life is full of adversities. We may feel weary when facing challenge after challenge but that weariness wears off. When we think about how far we’ve come. We won’t mind being tired. Accomplishments don’t happen overnight or should I say, “greatness doesn’t happen over night,” it takes time. Sometimes we become disappointed because we expect things to happen right away. It doesn’t always work that way.

There’s always room for improvement. We may not want to hear others criticizing us but not all critics are uncaring people. Some are there to make sure we live up to our potential. If we didn’t have them then we would probably do the minimum. Why settle for less when we can have the best? We should be thankful for those challenges. They make us better.

Some people may want to give up and in because they’ve faced toughness. They may not consider that the challenges won’t last always. We will reach a destination. One must be willing to accept that the road won’t be easy but it will be worth it.
