Half- assed. Have you ever looked back on your life and seen that it is only half-assed? Have you ever really put your heart into everything you see and do with all of yourself? Or do you let the day to day life of family, friends, business get in the way? I think we are all guilty of this to some degree.
It is hard to put things into perspective sometimes and know how to balance it all. There have been times in my own life that I don’t think I balanced very well. Always putting something or someone in front of what I knew that I needed to be focusing on. But at the time it seemed more important to shift focus. In doing so, I also learned that sooner or later if you ignore it, the other shoe will fall and knock you back to earth.
I have honestly known for years where my heart lies. I know what I am supposed to be doing, but I also knew that I had much living to do, learning to do before I could bring it to fruition. Now is the time for focus, for hard work and for narrowing the gap. Time to stop half-assing. Stop waiting for the foot to fall because you know that isn’t what you are suppose to be doing.
Have you ever felt like you have run so far from where you are supposed to be that you have let the grass grow up on the path you took so that you can’t find your way back? There is always a way back, you may have to pick through the thorns, through the high grass but I promise that the path is still there. If you watch, people will come into your life to help you get back to the place you’re supposed to be. They will take your hand, clear you mind and path, they will support you in any way possible to help you keep on the path that you are supposed to be on. Let them in. Remember, you are never alone in your struggles there is always help even if you don’t expect it.
It is a beautiful day to start going full-hearted, to put my mind, body, heart and soul to good use. No more half-assed. Keep on moving down that road and making your light seen, your heart heard and always, always stop along the way to help others. To stop loving, living, seeing, feeling, and being half-assed. Stop being half-assed in faith as well. I think that is one of the big things that most people are lacking in. Yeah, church on Sundays and or Wednesdays is wonderful, but do you strive to live it? Do you actually bring it into you day to day lives? Or do you live it only when reminded or when it suits you. I try incredibly hard to live it in my daily life, to put my troubles to rest and have faith that it will work out as it is supposed to. To treat others with a sense of humanity and humility. Reminding myself with each person I meet that they are going through their own trials and hurdles and it is my job to help them along their way not to hinder.
