Finding Life's Value: Pt. TWO





In the simplest task that many of us may take for granted daily of making the bed, I strove to have a good attitude about changing the bedsheets. However, in the back of my mind, I was like, Lord, when did making the bed become difficult?





Key number one: You will become happy about how far you have come:


In the simplest task that many of us may take for granted daily of making the bed, I strove to have a good attitude about changing the bedsheets. However, in the back of my mind, I was like, Lord, when did making the bed become difficult? And then, as I laid on the bed out of breath, panting profusely, I realized that within the smallest of tasks is often what we take for granted.


For instance, the next step, the next breath, preparing dinner, waking up, or even driving a car. Yet, once I completed making the bed or my version of it, I became extremely grateful. I immediately thanked God for how far I had come from removing the sheets, the comforter, putting on the new sheets, pillowcases, and all the other things that come along with making the bed, and although it took forever. I was a reminded of a most important lessons, remain humble during difficulty and be happy about how far you’ve come.


Key number two: Learn to stand on the shoulders of your conscious:


Although this lesson came a few weeks later, I reconnected to my higher self, the part of me where my value exists, in my heart, mind, and my relationship with God. Sometimes you need to stand on the shoulders of your emotional consciousness—your interbeing. It would be best if you became more self-reliant. Sensible in your ideology. Self-aware of your surroundings. You need to stop and listen to your heartbeat and what your body is telling you. Sometimes, your most tremendous sense of peace will be experienced during this phase.


Key number three: You will be in a state of reflection.


By remaining self-aware, you will recognize your growth. It will feel like an explosion. See, it wasn't all about changing the sheets. It was about changing my mindset about changing the sheets. It wasn't so much about finishing the bed as it was about the journey, the long road to my physical recovery. I wasn't frustrated about making the bed, the change in which my life had taken caused me to look at life differently and eventually embrace my path. See family, when it is your time to heal, finding life's value will teach you about submission, humility, joy, reconnection and reconciliation.


Here is your empowerment quote for today by T.W. Lawless, who once stated: "Too many people these days mistake humility for weakness when the ability to remain humble in today's self-centered world is a gift."


Until Next time,
