Life Is Beautiful: Eden Phillpotts

The universe is full of magical things patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.

Eden Phillpotts

One thing I constantly hear from other people and feel myself is that we are so ready for something but we keep being told no, not yet.

It is incredibly frustrating!

It makes it easy to get down on life. You tell yourself I know I am ready, I know I want this, I know, I know, I know.


Hold on for a minute. Maybe, just maybe who you are right now is partially ready. Maybe the thing you want so bad isn’t ready for you. Maybe you have a little more growth ahead of you.

You probably are looking at people who have all the things you want and questioning why they got it so easily.

What I think we fail to see is the road that person walked down to get where they are today. We don’t get to see all the times they almost gave up and felt the same way as we do right now.

In some cases certain people will have got the thing you wanted effortlessly. Those people will never appericate it the way you will taking it for granted and not appericating how sweet it really is.

The waiting game is a long path filled with wrong turns, crooked signs, and obstacles. Each of those things is prepairing you for the thing you want. I believe God does not always give us what we want yet he prepares us for what we need.

My challenge for this week is to focus on growing myself in the direction of who I want to become. Asking God to help me walk that road and adjust as I need to.

Keep going. What is yours is already making its way to you. We all walk the path of life, we all get to the destinations at different times and in different ways. Keep sharpening your wit my friend. We are in the waiting game and I promise there is a beauty here.

Feel good. Pass it on.
