The Maze Of Life 2

I came across this poem in the last week and felt quite glad I was not far in my discovery on the maze of life.


Thank God for my shoes – they fit.

I woke up one day and I realized that there were many things
about my life I was not satisfied with or better still, there
were challenges that were threatening my soul.

And I said to myself, ‘why should anyone envy me and want
to be in my shoes. ‘They don’t know how far I’ve come, they
don’t know what lies ahead of me, and neither do they know
how dissatisfied I get with myself from time to time.

People don’t know the troubles that you’ve had or the price
you had to pay to get to where you are. All they want to know
is that they wish they were like you.

Why should you wish you were in anybody’s shoes when you
hardly know how they fit?

When you’ve worn your shoes for a while they take the shape
Of your feet and align to the way you walk. If you were to
wear my shoes, you will not be comfortable in them.

So I stopped wishing that I am in someone shoes because
it might not fit; rather I thank God for my shoes, because
they fit!

I have learnt to be the best in what I do, and I know no-one
Can replace me anywhere and in any sphere

I am an original, my God is not in the cloning business.
He makes originals!

Make the best of what you do; because you have this
beautiful life to live ONLY ONCE.

Live it to the fullest.

In essence we have different lives to live, different shoes to wear, different paths to take and knowing that helps us appreciate our individual uniqueness.

Who have you been negatively comparing yourself to? it’s time to tow the positive angle to comparison, for out of it comes a deeper appreciation of the other person, a challenge tomove beyond your comfort zone (to learn and do new things) and the realization that you too can live life to the fullest.
