From the saint and goodly woman herself, Mother Teresa.
She definitely had life figured out to a science.
Many spiritual people do.
The truly enlightened hold a lot in without ever really sharing their innermost thoughts, feelings and pain with the outside world.
The truly brave document it and share it with a select few.
It is through continuous reflection, meditation, soul searching and ‘communion’ with our Creator that we obtain true wisdom, discernment and healing to attain our zenith and purpose in this world.
I am of the view that you can never serve two masters if you want to get to the other side of the mountain.
If you do; it may seem that you have arrived on the surface, but the rewards may be fleeting and its nectar not as sweet as you continue your search for ‘more’.
True happiness, success and contentment comes when you define your goals and desires; without looking outside of yourself, or using the perceived success or happiness of others as a yardstick for measurement.
It is only then that your rewards can be fully appreciated and seem effortless and blissful.
Are you up to this tall order in 2018?
The new year is moments away; waiting for us to discover, conquer and ‘win’ our own race with our former self.
It has been a crazy, painful, albeit fun, thrilling, fulfilling and cathartic journey.
Can’t wait to do it all again and serve you better in the years to come.
Be safe. Be thankful. Be faithful. Be courageous. Be of good conscience.
Most of all; be good to yourself and one another and goodness will always follow you all your days.
