"Press forward. Do not stop, do not linger in your journey, but strive for the mark set before you." - George Whitefield
Each of us have an ability to move beyond pain, grief or disappointment. We can move beyond the circumstance we find ourselves in. So much is possible if we just press forward and speak the future out loud to ourselves. We can find a way to see beyond what blocks our view.
We can get beyond what is holding us back.
There is an old story about a bedouin within his tent wondering how he would ever achieve all that he wanted. A friend told him to look up at the ceiling of his tent.
"What do you see" he asked the bedouin?
"All I see is the ceiling of my tent" responded the bedouin.
"Come out of the tent and see my ceiling" said the bedouin's friend. "What do you see?"
"I see no ceiling but a sky full of countless stars" replied the bedouin.
Exactly as the bedouin saw, your life has no ceiling above it.
The possibilities are as endless as the stars in the night sky. The paths you can choose are as vast as the eye can see. All it takes is moving beyond the present.
Do not let the past hold you firm in its grip. Break free to reach for a star or even the seemingly impossible.
Step out and look to the night sky. Find a star and begin your journey.
And stay inspired my friends.
