#414~ You know those books you read that you actually bought? I mean the physical book? And it begins slow, or it's not your thing, but you continue reading anyway, because you paid for it? After all, it came highly recommended. In the end it rewards you a hundred times over, with you relishing the rich tale.
Movies can be like that too. You begin watching one on demand or on Netflix, and if you're not engaged quickly, you quit, just turn it off. But, if you specifically paid for it, you'll be more likely to continue watching. I just watched a movie like that. The beginning was not my kind of movie. But at the end I was bawling! Sign of a great story!
I am reflecting on how life is like this. How we get in these quagmires, stalls, spinning in circles where we don't know what direction we should go next and we feel like quitting. Or, where a new direction will take us in our life is unclear, perplexing or too difficult, and we want to abandon it. Yet, if we hang in there, we are amply rewarded. A thousand-fold. Blissville. The reason for our journey is revealed, in the end.
Therefore, we need to stick it out to see. Hang with it a bit longer. Don't give up. Start over. Take a deep breath. You will be rewarded. You'll see.
