Isn’t it amazing how mowing the lawn is a lot like life? You give a good yank with the plastic handle connected to the string which is magically connected to the engine in the mower and VROOM! Away you go. You’re off to a great start walking along and CLUNK! The engine was shut off because too much debris was being fed into the mower. So you clear away the debris, restart the engine and away you go.
But then you notice the grass is too tall so the mower keeps clogging. You realize taking smaller sections allows you to walk at your own pace while still keeping the mower chugging along. Finally, you’re done! And the lawn look beautiful! Your HOA is happy. LOL! But isn’t is fascinating how life is the same way. We start our engine raring to go, we start walking and KERPLUNK – we’ve stopped. But we don’t allow this mountain to get in the way our success. We figure out how to move forward. We remove the temptations, regrets, rejections and doubts that start to cloud our mind. We start again because we’re worth it gosh dang it!
And sometimes we bite more than we can chew so we walk a little slower to our goal and then we speed up again. But no matter your pace or the time it takes for you to get to your goals, when you get there the reward is very sweet. So sweet that you jump in the air with a fist pump and exclaim, “I DID IT!!!!!!” with a beaming smile ear to ear. Yes, you did! It wasn’t always easy but you held strong and didn’t waiver. Happy Friday everyone!!! And yes, I mowed the lawn today and no, I didn’t get a notice from the HOA (this time). Hahahahaha!
