We all have a purpose and calling in this life.
You need to keep a positive attitude, by saying today is a new day, all things are new in it! AMEN! So, it’s a fresh do over or start over! Every new day, is a fresh new start, because you can never say it is tomorrow, because in reality it is today.
You can also choose to look and live your life in the rear view mirror, which means you won’t be moving forward. We must move forward in life, seeking and walking.
We will not be running, because hastiness will cause havoc, I know that all too well too. My father had a nickname for me, he would say slow down ‘Hurricane’! Because, I would never do anything slow!
Why follow directions? The answer is because you need a direction or a path to follow. If you have no direction, or you choose to not stay on the path your life may turn out like doorathee from Wizherd of Awhz.
Maybe that is why my life has been what it has been.
Do you want to live with a mentally thought process of saying “I should of” or “could of”? This is total misery! If I would have finished my college education. If only I would have listened to my parents.
I say this because your elders have detoured, their telling you this because of their life experiences they’re trying to save you the time. In life you will make many mistakes, these mistakes will cause you to make some you-turns, you may even hit bumps and chuck holes on the road and all because you didn’t want to listen to their advice, or see the signs.
Advise is knowledge from others experiences young and old!
