Sunday Message - Hard work pays off

Well, it's been quite a day again. I seem to be having lots of those about you?  The kind that are "yeah, that was a good day" at the end of it but in the midst it's more like "****!  Will this day never end?!?!?"  Surely I'm not the only one that has days like that.  Right?

Getting straight into it tonight.  I'm about ready to turn in.



Work hard every day.  This doesn't mean that you should work your fingers to the bone and your body to exhaustion.  It means that at the end of the day you should look back over the events of it and think "yeah, I had a productive day" whether it was from physical labour, office work, spiritual breakthroughs, playing with kids, doing chores, all of the hard so that at the end of your day you have that proud moment when you know you've done good things and moved yourself in a positive direction along your path.  On the other side of this please remember that everyone has different limits and different paths and different senses of what a good day, well done looks like and it is not your place to take the wind out of their sails.  Should you see someone struggling with this small task at the end of their day (and you really should encourage people to do this for themselves) it IS your place to encourage them to think about what they've done in a different way because everyone always does a little better when they've had some positive feedback and if you start giving it to them then they will learn how to approve of themselves too.


That's it.  Fairly self explanatory this time I think??  The only thing I can add is that even when you have a "downtime day" for whatever reason you should be proud of yourself for noticing that you needed that day to rejuvenate.  It is just as important to feed your soul as it is to feed your body and these "downtime days" are the perfect way to do it.

not this
