In a world where everyone seems to be rushing around looking for their piece of whatever life is offering, this is a lesson that bares repeating for us all. “There is plenty…even for me.” This is not a lesson that was easy for me to learn when I was younger and sandwiched in the middle of a 3 sister family. There always seemed to be a rush to the new cereal for that coveted one prize that rested somewhere at the bottom of the box….or a run to the car to claim “shotgun!” so you didn’t end up in the middle seat…or camping out all night to get concert tickets so that you could make sure that you were part of the 10,000 chosen few to enjoy a unforgetable day. Back in the day (yes, I did just say that) it was hard to understand that there was plenty in life…even for me. In the excitement of taking in as much as you can when you are young, you often rush to the front of the line to make sure you get there. But as I’ve grown older, I realize…there’s no need to rush. There is so much of life unclaimed out there…that there is plenty for everyone to experience. So, even while you might not get that coveted prize at the bottom of the cereal box, know that there are plenty of prizes out in life and all around you. So don’t worry…there is plenty for everyone…including you.
