Ted Guice, the fitness expert who is also a cancer survivor (I talk about Ted and his inspiring story in a previous post) is my personal trainer for my full THRIVING recovery. During our last work-out, Ted talked to me about creating a daily “list” of things to do. By keeping this “To Do” list in mind, and in context with the bigger picture of what I wanted to achieve, the lesson I learned was not to put off until tomorrow what I can do today.
Instead, jump in with both feet, knowing full well that what is being asked of you, if done well, may very well exceed your present talent and skills. Here is the biggie: Trust the Process. Ask yourself, If tomorrow is full of the things I was going to do today, how would I prepare to enjoy tomorrow? Trust that as soon as you get to the edge of all you can do, that which is greater than you, living in you, will assist you. Trusting the process is a beautiful way to know, at the deepest level of your being, that God exists and is THRIVING as a part of you.
The purpose of our lives is to give birth to the best that is within us. It is only through our own personal awakening that the world can be awakened. We cannot give what we don’t have.
