Why Do It?

haiti_workHard

A sad reality is we are likely to continue promoting buffoonery and B.S. rather than the hard work God’s children are doing to lift humanity to its highest levels and to make the world better. Once we come out of these dark ages, the contributions of these angels will be recognized and even memorialized. Unfortunately, it will be long after these brave souls have passed away.

So why do it? Why continue working hard to make the world better when you know your efforts will barely be recognized during your lifetime? Why work hard to become the best at what you do, when you know someone of lesser talent and more individual minded ambition will hog the limelight and bask in man’s glory?

You do it, because “it” is what God sent you here to do. You do it, because you know this limelight, that is essentially man celebrating man, has nothing to do with how you will be judged when all is said and done. You do it, because you would go crazy doing anything else. You do it, because you understand instant gratification is not the end goal, change is. ~ Sean King

Thought #1
Sometimes we get so focused on following our ambition, so caught up on trying to get our piece of the pie, so busy trying to reach that dream place, and so dedicated to trying to accumulate all the spoils that are promised when you make it that we forget to bring happiness with us.

Thought #2
Happiness for me, is being able to enjoy the current moment as much as I fantasize about the possibilities and smile about the memories. Happiness for me, is right now.
