Superhero strength

This week I was thinking about the day I became a member of my church and more specifically why I wanted to join on this day. Now everybody knows I'm no pastor nor do I preach, but the message spoke on that day gave me a certain type of confidence in myself that I had never felt before. On this day I had a confidence in living again... a confidence that I could achieve far more than I had achieved up til then. This new found feeling of confidence was amazing! I finally believed that I had limitless possibilities. That belief felt like a tickle of the future, a strange essence tingling up my back.

I believe God whispered to me that that day, he whispered a promise that if I thought this was amazing to just wait. That day I felt I knew my future was really all up to me, my thoughts, my beliefs and ultimately my faith in myself. That whisper has lead me to this place, a place of peace, understanding, and patience, it is something new... but I like it. I went into work with the renewed feeling of confidence I was uplifted because today I knew I was unstoppable, I knew that whatever I wanted was going to come to me... eventually. This new super power is the power of patience, one of the most powerful qualities to posses. I mean if you look at it almost every religion feels patience is a quality that even the masters have trouble mastering. If you can control the virtue of patience, you will conquer whatever is in front of you.

Think about it if Michael Jordan didn't practice patience he would be running a gas station because he would've given up when he didn't make the basketball team in high school. If Barbara Walters hadn't practiced patience she would've quit her job on the nightly news due to the sexism and criticism she encountered. If Barack Obama wouldn't have practiced patience he would've thrown in the towel when the media found out about the Jeremiah Wright video's. Patience is kinda like that thing that super hero's must drink order to fend of the "Evil Side", it's the thing that you must posses, like a weapon, because if you don't you will give in to defeat.. and hell who ever wants that. The defeat of living an unfulfilled life, the normal, I mean I don't know about anybody else but I love my crazy, fun, off the wall, intensely passionate life! So lemme just drink myself a double shot of patience so that I can endure, enjoy and love right now, knowing that eventually I will capture my intended destiny!

Love & Blessings.
