What are we doing? How are we doing things?
All we have in life is work. Work. Work.
That's it. When it all falls apart. When you lose it all. When you are at the bottom, the only thing you have left is work. The work you do during the day. The work you do at the gym. The work you do to better your relationships.
All of it. Work. Work gets you up off the pavement. It gets you out of bed, out of the gutter. Gets your legs lifting and pushing forward again.
Work. But just work to work is BS. You're just gonna work for the heck of it? Go run around the park because you think you should do it? Then what? Then you finish, and where is the satisfaction?
Who's proud of you? The people who you think will be proud of you for accomplishing the run? Nah. What about you? Are you proud of yourself? Was there more that you could have done?
That's the extra we all have. We have the extra. The extra oomph. The extra inch. We all have it.
Where does it come from? Where? It comes from inside. It comes from deep, deep in our souls. And we have to listen. We have to listen. Listen. Listen. What are we being called to do?
What is that voice telling you to expend your precious, precious energy doing? Your energy is precious. It's important. You can't do everything. But you can do YOUR thing. Your thing. What is that thing? What's that thing only you can do? What can you do in the best way possible?
The only way we figure that out is by work. Not by sitting in a room all day watching mindless TV. No. Once we start working, the ideas will pop up. Work is rewarded. No amount of hard work is ever wasted.
No matter what. Never. Never was one iota of work ever wasted in the history of mankind. What was put in, from the beginning of time until the end of time, was gotten out. What you put in you get out. Period. That's life.
Maybe you have to take little steps. Inch by inch. But you are working. Moving. In the right direction. YOUR direction. Your direction.
Little by little, inch by inch, work, work, work, and it will all be revealed. Just don't stop.
