As I get ready for bed,
My mind starts doing that habitual thing,
It couldn’t have found a better time
than the time I’m getting ready for some good rest?
My mind starts thinking of these 5 words:
Live, Fail, Learn, Grow and Excel
To break it down,
This is what came to mind...
I’m living right now. Huuh!!!
I’m alive and well thanks to our Father in Heaven.
But He created us for more than mere living:
He created us for a purpose.
Some find that purpose at an early age,
Some take a life time before they can figure it out,
But in our journey of finding that purpose in our lives
We fail miserably.
We fail miserably! We fail in the worst ways possible to man.
We get hurt and discouraged. We at times feel lost.
We want to give up. We fail time after time.
When we have the courage to get back up and try again,
We drop again and again.
But in all these failures, we are presented with a God-given gift
to learn from our mistakes.
We learn from all our failures.
We learn from every single little mistake.
We learn to talk, to walk, to sing, to write.
We learn to love and to hate;
We learn to fight and make peace.
We learn from all our mistakes and set backs,
and that’s when we start to grow.
We grow when we are able to learn from our previous setbacks.
We grow when we are able to look at our past as a time of training.
We grow when we are able to see our mistakes and move beyond them.
We grow when we are willing to admit that we were wrong.
We grow when we have the desire to develop and a strong will
to become a better human being.
When we have reached that point in our lives,
Wow!!! That’s everybody’s favorite spot in life.
We want to excel at everything we do, at times to be recognized by others,
We want to live the life of excellency where everything is perfect and comfortable.
Now, there is no such thing as a perfect life,
but the feeling of accomplishment is very much worth living for,
In order to be at the top of the peak where the excellencies are
You must want to live.
At times we want to stop living,
but we dream big, we dream of the great unimaginable.
It is time you start living and make the unimaginable view-able.
You must live. Fail and learn in order to grow into who you are meant to be.
It is then that you will excel and live on the mountain’s highest peaks.
