This morning I read a quote from Jon Bon Jovi in my Guideposts magazine. It has stayed with me all day and I would like to share it.

"I can tell you this: It's passion, not pedigree, that can and will win in the end. Free yourself from comparison. Just because someone has fancy sneakers doesn't mean they can run faster."

It occurred to me that some people spend their whole life searching for something that is right in front of them and they never realize it. That is why I try to count my blessings every day and be thankful for this life I am living. Some days this is easy and some days it is almost beyond my reach. That is when I tell myself that it's not about me.


  1. I like the quote, & how you applied it. Some people aren't easily satisfied with their blessings, I guess. Too bad they can't make their eyes see.

  2. Thank you for sharing this quote and your thinking in response to it. I often wonder if I need to slow down and see what's in front of me...and usually the answer is yes. I'm never sorry when I do.
