THE WAY I SEE IT.

06 Jun

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post, and sharing is encouraged.

How people see us can sometimes come down to a single kernel of corn.

Back in the day, I use to visit a friend that seemly lived most of her life spooning out the bottom of cans until they were nearly clean, coupled with shaking bottles for every drop of liquid to fall. I watched her for about 5 years, and I can still see her in my minds eye guiding every morsel of food into the corner of a pot, a pan, a can, etc., until she had extracted every eatable parcel of food from it.

I saw this as a waste of time and petty, but as the years passed and I had to fend for myself, things changed. It was not until I left my parents home did I fully understand why she had to have every grain.

That move into adulthood was not what I was expecting. Now that I had to make and manage my own money concerning an array of bills previously taken for granted, especially the food. My friend’s frugal practices all of a sudden made sense.

It wasn’t long before I started to realize how wasteful I had been, and most of that waste was out of pure laziness that ended up costing me a pretty penny. As petty, or cheap, for lack of a better word I thought she was, I now know how valuable every morsel is, especially when you or others are hungry.

The moral of this story is, it just goes to show sometimes you can’t see your way clearly until it affects you personally. What I originally thought to be a waste of time was a learning point. I learned the importance of making every dollar count, how to minimize waste, and save more efficiently.

Years ago, my father invented a game that the family still enjoys today, the things is, now it is selling all over the World because someone else patent it. Until this happened, I had tried several times to have the game patented myself, but the times, knowledge and resources eluded me.

I knew I had a winner, but I failed when I didn’t actively do as much as possible to secure it, instead I took it to the park some twenty or so years later. By then it was within my graph to start some type of legal ownership, instead I had become comfortable, and was not pursuing a license, which cost me everything.

The moral of the story is, we are constantly praying to God for a way, but when He gives it to us, oftentimes we take it for granted, or not recognizing it as a blessing, and then we start to wonder why we didn’t receive what we were promised. After all, He did say, ask and you shall receive. I was angry when I didn’t get what I wanted?

Finally, I came to the realization that all blessing don’t come ready made, one size does not fits all, or in the form of money. Sometimes we have to work with what we have been given in order to turn it into something we want, including money or other worldly goods, but by now it was too late for that project.

What I learned was, A vision without action is a daydream; a daydream that could easily turn into a nightmare.

Just so you know, there has been more than a few people I decided to remove from my life, for whatever reasons, and there were those I found hard to just let go of, but, I found by doing so turned out to be proof that I could do better.

It took time, but I found some old friends to be exactly what I didn’t want, or need; I was being held back because I thought them to be real friends, even when I knew I was on the losing end of most things when it came to them.

But all wasn’t wasted, because I chose to extract the little good I found in some, instead of fuming or seeking revenge, which in turn motivated me to do more than ever to get what I deserved. I had come to terms with some people are only in your life for reason and a season.

I realized at some point we may not get all of what we think we deserve, or keep company with the people we want to associate with, even our wants can be unattainable. The good news is you do get what you believe, plan and expect if you work at it.

On the other side of the equation, there are ways and things that will make sure you never get to the level you deserve, for instance, if you’re too attached to things (and People) that don’t deserve you.

It’s Something to Think about!

Jesus is Lord!

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Bless you!
