On Solid Ground

Updated: Jan 3, 2020

You don’t need to be an engineer to figure out that you need to build your house on solid ground.

Only when you get the foundations right, can you build something sturdy enough to brave all of the elements.

Strong winds, storms, hot or cold don’t matter; you’re still standing tall.

Your life works in a similar vein.

You need to build it on solid ground, because if you don’t you’re unlikely to be able to weather the storms.

My point is, when you experience hardship, when your identity or very character is challenged, will you be able to stand tall or will it all begin to unravel and cave in on itself?

Because even the smallest crack in the foundation, can see the greatest of castles come tumbling down.

So, what is it that you base or stake your life on?

What makes your life worth living?

What do you stand for, what do you believe or believe in?

What are you NOT willing to compromise?

And at the end of the day, the question you need to ask is; will it be enough to see you through the strongest of storms?

If the answer is yes, then that’s a pretty good start.
