Get out of your own way

In a recent conversation with a friend, he said: "You have it easy. God is always a constant reminder to be a good human being." While this notion has some semblance of truth, it does not mean that we are all absolved from understanding that we are free thinking people and are the owners of our actions. Having spirituality of any kind is an excellent signpost for how one should live their life, but even if spirituality was absent from one's life, it should be clear that the treatment of people should be done in the same way in which one would want to be treated.


Life is what we make of it isn't it? How often have we heard this statement and rolled our eyes at someone just being cliche? But what if we took those words to heart and believed them? Would we live our lives any differently than we do now? What if every step you made was your choice?

Isn't it though?

How fast are you moving that you don't realize even for a second that the life you are living is yours and doesn't belong to anyone other than you? Sure, we could get into the conversation about letting Jesus light the way and lead us down the path we're supposed to go down, but at the end of the day, it's still up to you to walk down that path.
