Hello world, welcome to another new day. All glory be to the Lord for perserving our life again to witness another month. Let do our best to make our life count for good.
Here is my tidbit Do not ever underestimate yourself by comparing yourself with others. It’s our differences that make us unique & Beautiful. Many people have been trap themselves with self pity because they compare other people progress with their own flaw by this blindfold them of their own progress. Why are you focusing on what you are not doing right neglecting what you are doing right. Everyone on earth are design for different unique work so accept who you are and your flaw is your uniqueness, do you know that. Let me show you from this story A water bearer had two large pots, each hung on each end of a pole which he carried across his neck. One of the pots had a crack in it, and while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water at the end of the long walk from the stream to the master’s house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.
For a full two years this went on daily, with the bearer delivering only one and a half pots full of water in his master’s house. Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments.
But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it was able to accomplish only half of what it had been made to do. After two years of what it perceived to be a bitter failure, it spoke to the water bearer one day by the stream.
“I am ashamed of myself, and I want to apologize to you.”
“Why?” asked the bearer. “What are you ashamed of?”
“I have been able to deliver only half my load because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your master’s house. Because of my flaws, you have to do all of this work, and you don’t get full value from your efforts,” the pot said.
The water bearer felt sorry for the old cracked pot, and in his compassion he said, “As we return to the master’s house, I want you to specially notice the beautiful flowers along the path.”
Indeed, as they went up the hill, the old cracked pot noticed the sun warming the beautiful wild flowers on the side of the path. But at the end of the trail, it still felt bad because it had leaked out half its load, and so again the pot apologized to the bearer for its failure.
The bearer said to the pot, “Did you notice that there were flowers only on your side of your path, but not on the other pot’s side? That’s because I have taken advantage of your flaw . I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back from the stream, you’ve watered them. For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate my master’s table. Without you being just the way you are and without your help , he would not have this beauty to grace his house.”
Can you now see your flaw is your uniqueness, stop compare and compete with others. Focus on yourself and be best you can ever be… because you are important as you are and never underestimate yourself by comparing yourself with others. It’s our differences that make you unique & Beautiful.
God bless you.. Happy new month.
