Almost 100 posts and thousands of words later my great summer experiment is coming to a close with this post. In June I challenged myself to write or at least post to this site every single day for 90 days. I went past that day by 9 days and have decided that my post today wrapping it all up will mark a new change in my posting frequency, more on that later.
From time to time we might find ourselves caught in the storm of life and crying out to God and asking Him why. Truth be told God places trials in front of us to strengthen us and make us concrete in our faith and beliefs. We must be tested in order to realize how deep our faith really goes. So weather the storm my friends. God will be right there with you.
Keeping with the theme from the past few posts about empowering yourself I’ve been thinking about what it means to go the extra mile whether in our personal or professional lives. The above quote speaks volumes to me as I feel like there aren’t enough people who decide to take that extra step in whatever it is that they’re doing. Perhaps they think about it but something draws them away from jumping over the wall and going for it. I wonder why that is. Are you scared of the unknown? I’d make the argument that we venture into the unknown all the time, but a lot of the time it’s in such small fractions that you don’t even realize it. The times where it’s a big jump into the deep end is where we often stop and back away from the edge.
There’s something so special and powerful about the human brain. It’s also scary as all get out. The fact that our brains rule over us with so much force is astounding if you think about it. Though, we can control it and when we learn how we can move mountains. It’s such a powerful tool that in the right hands one can unlock the world that’s been in front of them. How many of you go through the day being fine with where you are in life and not truly considering how much greater you could be?
Whenever I take a Philosophy class and we get to the unit on Aristotle my entire body cringes. It’s not that I dislike the man in any way it’s just that for whatever reason it doesn’t speak to me and doesn’t interest me in any way shape or form. I’ve come to terms with that and understand that for the entire unit on Aristotle I’m just going to scrape by.
