Nate’s Monday Morning Message
Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…this week and every week we have the opportunity to make the most from our relationships. When you think of all the things that you have to do today, tomorrow, and the next day, please remember that each one of these presents an opportunity for you.
It is not the people around us or the things that need to be done. It is the attitude we have and the reason we do what we do. We are all blessed with tremendous opportunity. What we do with it is completely up to us. Yes, there will be challenges; there always are. Yes, there may be disappointments; there sometimes is. Yes, there will be tremendous happiness. There will be if you decide that is what you want. Let us have fun in all we do and let us make the very most of each and every opportunity that comes our way. Let’s make it a great week!
Give Me the Wind by Craig Nicholson
I am at my best with the wind in my face,
When overcoming the challenge, with pace.
The pace that requires more effort, more strength.
But once gained momentum, endures with great length.
It’s easy to sit back, placid and calm
Comfort is only a relative balm.
It seems an advantage, better than strife
But is dulled by stagnation, stifling life.
Progress needs movement, energy, drive,
No chance for improvement if you do not strive.
Nothing’s for nothing: cause and effect.
That which you work for, you’ve more chance to get.
So give me the wind, let it blow in my face,
The more I confront, the more strength I’ll embrace.
Steps are not mounted, nor challenge overcome.
Without certain courage or effort be done.
