My blog has never been political correct and will never be. Writing has always been my saving grace in the mist of my pain, and continues to be to this very day. The title really tells it all. The path of a good man. I have never been a person that just thought about himself, but I just loved to see others shine and rise. I mean I have always been that way, even to the point I thought it was my curse that I cared for others the way I do…really. But recently I had a talk with someone very close to me, and some parts they were right and some parts they will never understand. But then I start to think to myself what the bible said about kings, men, and those that were lead. Some times the path of a good man is a hard one. Do we really move on our own accord, or are we just playing our part in the game of life?
We always say its me, myself and I that achieved this accomplishment and so on. That is just the way of the world now. But most of us fail to understand that we needed help somewhere down the road. I’m not among the foolish, because I know I need help in my accomplishments. Which brings me to another point, it doesn’t matter how big the achievement in your life, or how others perceive your achievements. As long as you are happy with yourself…DON’T ever let someone determine your happiness in your achievements. Always be you regardless of the others in your life. I too, had to learn this same principal in my life.
Now why is the path of a good man so hard? Because we as human want to do our own thing and some time dislike direction. Even though we say often, “We need direction.” That’s a lie for some people, but we are program to ask for something that we really don’t want. Another reason why it is hard for a good man is very simple, because there are many followers but only a few leaders. Some times the word “wait” is not an answer we want to hear.
Do I question some of the decisions that I made? Heck yeah I do all the time, but with all my decision that I made there has always been a lesson learn and some good came out of those experiences whether academic, relationship, family, job, or family. For me personally, I have to contribute that to God. Because there are many things that I do not know the answer to, and I not going to play that I’m Mr. Know-it-all. But there have been some things that have happen in my life that I cannot explain…it just so happen to be in my favor. So for me, when I let go and let God handle my situations. My situation always turned around in my favor. and another thing to remember…trust is key to a good man.
As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.
