This morning sipping my coffee, I watched confident blue jays, Mr. and Mrs., monopolize the birdfeeder from my kitchen window. I don’t know what made me happier. Seeing the striking blue feathers or watching the swallows, 1/3 of the blue jays’ size, jockey for position.
Yes, there are times in our lives when the odds are against us. For the new job with more qualified candidates, the business client who has cheaper alternatives, the house you want in a sea of buyers who can pay cash – yada, yada, yada. However, all of that doesn’t matter when it’s your time.
When you have enough moxie to fill a stadium, a shit-ton of grit, relentless ambition, and an unwavering belief in yourself, it doesn’t matter who or what the competition is. Repeat after me, “It’s my time.”
The swallows won. You will too.
Faith is the belief in our capacity to create meaningful lives. – Terry Tempest Williams
