the long road

What’s that phrase about battles not being won or lost on the field?

So often we see a race as the span between when we line up at the start to when we cross the finnish. Yet we all know better; unless we invest our time and energy into conditioning, the race will be meaningless or even worse, disheartening. The key to reaching our goals is in the understanding that the race starts today. You don’t sign up for a 5 or 10 k, you sign up for every single kilometre you will log until you arrive at that starting line.

It’s so easy to ignore this fact. It allows us to be complacent; to choose temporary pleasure over long term satisfaction. And it applies to every area of our lives. From our fitness, schooling, personal development,  to spiritual growth and professional advancement.

Proverbs 13:4 tells us that “lazy people want much but get little, but those who work hard will prosper.”

The word lazy stings a little eh?

We have SO MUCH potential! But how are we willing to sacrifice to become the people we were meant to be?

About esmemerrie

I am a 23 year old, newly graduated with a BscN. I am passionate about change. In myself or in others, I believe that there is always room for improvement and I never want to become complacent. Even still, there is nothing more valuable then celebrating, finding delight in even the simplest moments, the smallest accomplishments. I never have enough time for my hobbies, whether it's sports/working out, reading, cooking, volunteering, thrifting, playing piano, singing or hanging out with my family and friends I sometimes find it hard to fit it all in. But really, who doesn't? At the end of the day, I want to be the type of woman, Christian, friend, nurse, athlete, cook... the type of person who never settles and always inspires those around her. I want to be real, honest and faithful. Be the person that leaves them wishing.
