I've been doing some pondering and realized life if like a stack of rocks. Everyday we add another rock to our stack. Sometimes it tumbles down and we have to start over. Sometimes the time and place isn't right for that particular rock. Sometimes we need another rock for support.
The most important thing, I think, is to have a firm foundation. Without a firm foundation, our stack of rocks will fall. Sooner or later...it will fall. And our life is like that too. We need a firm foundation. I'm not gonna get all preachy but think about what you are building your life on. Is it solid and steady and truth?
Another thing needed in rock stacking and life is persistence. If we don't persist, then our rock stack will never get built. And our lives will stagnant. We won't be happy or fulfilled.
I know it is hard to persist in the face of obstacles. But, as Andy Andrews says in The Traveler's Gift, we must persist without exception. If we do, we will find a way over those obstacles and create a life that has meaning and joy.
So, today...think about the foundation you are stacking your rocks on. And persist...without exception.
