Every morning I have the same routine… lemon water, coffee , Jesus Calling then a reflective read! Today’s read has me recalling a life lesson from my Dad. I wish I would’ve recorded my fathers voice as it was one that was very stern, strong, compassionate and regal! And I just miss hearing my Dad talk and his wisdom! Today I drifted back and recalled one of my many conversations with my Dad.
I recall asking my Father when I was probably 10 years of age, what does it mean to be successful in life? My Dad said “ Kitty , let me think about that for awhile”.
My Dad a few days later told me “I have an answer to your question Kitty“.
“Kitty, there are many tools in life that you can have to be successful and there are many avenues I would like to see you take to further your mind and education ! But true success in life will never be material things or degrees… it may seem that way but if you want true success in life… be the girl that makes people feel like they own the world !!! Truly care about others and please always stay grounded … never forget your roots! That girl will always be the most successful in the room!!! And don’t bother to be with others that compete with others or themselves . That isn’t success Kitty it’s just exhaustion! Keep your heart good Kitty… Keep your heart good… and well! “ Thanks for the reminder today Dad… I don’t always succeed but I’m trying to keep my heart good! Or is it well? None the less…. M Wayne’s Words of Wisdom are a good recall and a good base line for life! Thanks Dad♥️😇 thanks for your many life lessons… wisdom and love♥️
