LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS A STRAIGHT LINE…Winnegrad

WHEN SOMETHING IS TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU, FIND SOMETHING ELSE. LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS A STRAIGHT LINE. “You can’t connect the dots looking forward: you can only connect them looking backwards,” Said S. Jobs. There are many different paths to the same goal, to the same heights of your DREAMS. There are times WHEN SOMETHING IS TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU and you find another, totally different, aspiration to pursue. LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS A STRAIGHT LINE.

 

It is so important at all times to keep your eyes and mind open to another path. The route should always lead to JOY (the highest blessing to receive), not just pleasure. JOY, which is a permanent feeling of PRIDE and GRATIFICATION. Whereas pleasure is a momentary feeling of satisfaction. WHEN SOMETHING IS TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU search for the path that will present JOY.

 

There are times when one, for years, has been pursuing a dream and for one reason or another that path is blocked. It is crucial for that person to EMBRACE THE UNCERTAINTIES and take their SKILLS and KNOWLEDGE and select a different path to discover their JOY. LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS A STRAIGHT LINE.

 

On your PATH OF LIFE always make the effort to ASSIST others. That is where you will discover your JOY. You will live with PRIDE and GRATIFICATION. A wonderful feeling that you were able to ASSIST someone to climb up the ladder of accomplishment. HERE is JOY, a permanent feeling to ASSIST another and observe their success.

 

WHEN SOMETHING IS TAKEN AWAY FROM YOU, FIND SOMETHING ELSE THAT WILL LEAD YOU TO A JOYFUL EXISTENCE. NEVER BROOD ON WHAT IS TAKEN AWAY, START A NEW PATH, A NEW PRESENCE, NEW REALITY, NEW BEING.
