Building a Life

Could you imagine building a house with no plans? No checks? No assessments along the way? Could you see yourself getting up each day and pouring concrete, cutting timber, hammering nails, laying bricks, hanging plaster and building your new home with no reason, strategy or logical process? No blueprint? That place would surely look disastrous. It couldn’t function properly. It would be dangerous. Unstable. Sooner or later, it would fall down and if you happened to find yourself in the middle of it, you would be hurt. For some of us, that house is our life.

A successful life is not random or accidental and we don’t deserve it.

We create it.

Not sure I entirely agree with you Craig. A house is a very basic structure compared to a person. All the planning in the world doesn’t necessarily make for a perfect person(like what?) I embrace the chaos that life brings. One room collapses another forms. One door closes, another opens. Life is chaotic. That doesn’t make it bad.
Love you man.
