This is what I have always told my boys.
Sometimes life just doesn’t seem fair.
Sometimes life is just plain not fun!
And sometimes ya just gotta put in that little extra bit of elbow grease- a/k/a work.
But one thing is certain…God has allowed our situation and placed us in this moment for a reason.
Don’t worry about the negativity…don’t worry about the criticism (from anyone else, or from yourself!) for there will always be criticism no matter what you do.
Don’t worry about the heavy load or the road ahead…and when it gets to be too much or is just plain not fun anymore, you continue to be the best ‘you’ you can be.
You do you, and don’t worry about what anyone else does or says.
Eyes forward, pushing onward towards the goal for God’s glory (not for yours or any other man’s).
This season will not last forever.
Always walk uprightly and “Bloom where you are planted!”
“Whatever your hands find to do, do it with all your might …” (Ecclesiastes 9:10).
