On Tuesday night after dinner, my son suggested we watch Lord of The Rings / The Fellowship of the Ring together.
I’ll never turn down a date with my son!
And I certainly didn’t think I’d be posting tonight because of it.
That is one, long, intense, but awesome movie! And I saved money, because I won’t be needing a manicure anytime soon. 🙂
But I couldn’t pass up not sharing this quote with you…
Frodo: I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.
Gandalf: So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you were also meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought.
I love this quote, because we’ve all wished at some point and time in our lives to have differently than we do now.
Every time I’ve been through troubled times, it’s helped me to build a stronger foundation that didn’t exist before. So every time I jump through a new hurdle, I’m better equipped to tackle the next.
Difficulties never stop. They just reshape into different ones. Ever notice that?
It’s my belief that if you’re going through a tricky time, that just means your story is far from over.
As long as you keep moving forward.
Through my own hurdles, have come extreme blessings. My entire life changed. That’s how Funky Junk started. Through one big, impossible hurdle that should have shut me down.
But I chose to pick up a drill instead. This post kinda says it best…
