“it’s never crowded along the extra mile.”
I always gave 150% of anything i did. on the extra mile I got lonely and felt that the 80% crowd was more entertaining. i got tired of giving more than was needed and started to blend again. That’s so wrong of me. Why compare myself, when i’m a 150% kind of person?
These days i’m reading a book by Rick Warren ( Say what?! i’m reading a actual book?! ): “purpose driven life” and this book is not only confusing me, but i feel ashamed of certain habits I adopted. i’m at day eight still, but his question ” what is your purpose for living?” is still unanswered on my side. The idea he want to create is that you should find your purpose- the purpose God has intended for you- and live by it for God.
So I realized not only have i forgot my purpose for living or gave God a chance to let me know what it is, but i don’t go the extra mile anymore. I can find lots and lots of excuses like : ” it’s not like the company i’m working for will build me statue after I die” or ” being helpful makes you vulnerable to thieves”, but at the end of each day i should stop looking for excuses and focus on what God had planned for me. If it means i will be surrounded with less people, wow i might enjoy that. I might not get a statue one day, but why do you want to be a pooping space for birds when you can be remembered by a few people who knew you and loved you?
Go the extra mile
Make some one’s day
have a purpose driven life…
