Life is going to break your heart. That I promise you. A job will be lost. Love will grow cold. Kids will disappoint. To live in this life, there is no escaping pain. But be on the watch for the suffering you create...
The next time you have a train of thought that leaves you feeling let down, less than, left out...DON’T RIDE IT.
The other night i was at dinner with my grandad, checking in about life, it’s struggles and my strategies to get to what i would call, “the next level.” Midway through my explanation, he reached into his wallet, pulled out a light blue card with what looked like a worn plastic covering and slid it to me across the table. The words above, “be still and know,” were written on it. He said his mother gave it to him 20 years ago when he felt like nothing was going right and thought he was losing himself. If im real, i couldn’t speak for a minute, all i could do was stare at the card . All i could think was, you’re so good at all these explanations, you got all these plans, but when are you ever “still” enough to hear and know? So i was tempted to keep this moment locked in my journal for me, but i kept feeling this urge - like other people needed to read the words on the card my grandad passed to me. Maybe it’s you? #ps4610#happymonday
