Don’t Just Tolerate, Celebrate!
When I was growing up, we lived in a little house in south county, Saint Louis. We were poor. Our bologna didn’t have a first name and we didn’t have Cheerios, we had O’s. Well, this kid named Johnny lived down the street. His Dad, who was welder, built Johnny a motorcycle. This motorcycle was primed and it was BAD! (In a good way.) So as you can see, I had a situation here where I was envious of someone.
I Gave New Meaning To The Phrase, “Off-The-Chain!”
While Johnny had this #chopper, I only had a 10-speed bicycle. Well, actually it was a one speed because when I switched gears it would jump off the chain. So I guess I should have #celebrated that I had a bike that was “Off-the-chain!” In my envy of Johnny, I wanted a ride on his chopper, but he said I couldn’t handle it on my own. So I traded my Frogger video game for a ride with him, all the while thinking, “I’ll never have a #bike like this.” Everything Good Is Out In Our Future
Fast forward a couple of decades. I used to speak into a friend’s life who was growing a business. His Dad always verbally beat him down, so I would #encourage my friend. Now, he has built up one of the largest powersports dealers selling more jet skis and #scooters than most others in the U.S. He called me to show me a motorcycle he took in as a trade-in. It was all chromed out and the type of motorcycle many guys dream about. My friend said that because it meant so much to him that I had spoken into his life, he wanted to give it to me. (It’s possible that I shed a tear.) Don’t Allow Envy To Invite Pride Which Makes Any Celebration Superficial
When I picked up that #motorcycle, I wanted to take a picture and put it on Facebook so that Johnny could see it, er, what God has done in my life. No, wait, that’s pride, that’s the flesh. Just because Johnny got his early, didn’t mean I wasn’t going to get mine. And you’re going to get yours but you have to allow God to bring you full circle.
It’s Never Too Late To Celebrate!
God will bring this into manifestation in your life. The business you want to start? TALK TO ME INSTAGRAM:) very least give me some emoji's.
