How often do you hear people speak about their futures and what they will do, and where they will be, when things work out the way they want them to? How often do you speak or think about it? About that day, when everything will be perfect? Friend, you are not the only one wanting things to be perfectly in place and working out well, there are literally billions of people all around the world, across boundary lines like language, nationality, skin tone, social and economic standing, religious beliefs and political persuasions, who wants exactly the same thing. All or most people want things to go well, from the mother who just gave birth to a new-born, to a CEO of a billion dollar company, from a farmer to presidents, from students to professors, all want things to go well and work out perfectly, even you!!
And, because all people want things to be just right, most work very hard to try and bring about that "just right." They rise up early, stay up late, work long hours and rest very little, because they want to succeed at making things just right. And do you blame them? After all, who else is trying to make their dreams happen, who else is putting in long hours to help them succeed, who else is helping you? If they stop trying now, if you stop trying now, trying to succeed at accomplishing your "just right," who will do it for you? Who will rise up early and stay up late, to make your dreams a reality? Who will work long, hard hours, to make things just right for you? Who will? Do you have a name pop in your head? Do you have a dream chaser, working to make your dreams happen? Or is everyone else, just too busy trying to do it for themselves, just like you, they rise up early and stay up late, because they are also chasing their own dreams, just like you, they too are trying to make things just right.
Don’t you wish you were like Goldilocks, where you could just walk right into a place, where you can find your “just right,” your “perfect,” already prepared and laid out for you, ripe for the taking? Who wouldn’t want that “perfectly prepared just right” laid out for their taking? Who wouldn’t? No effort on your part, no sweat or tears of frustration. No long hours, no early mornings and late nights. Just a perfectly prepared dream reality, where everything is in place, and exactly the way you want it to be? You can just take it and move on, like Goldilocks just found her just right, and moved and found another “just right,” ripe for her to take and indulge in. All people want that.
That is exactly the reason why all, or most people, work so hard, they want what Goldilocks found. They want their “just right” and, because no-one else is working hard to make it happen for them, they work long, and sometimes hard and difficult hours, to bring about their perfect. Friends, there is nothing wrong with chasing your dreams or trying to achieve your “just right,” but sometimes, your hard work can be a little too hard. I am all for people who are achieving much, and seeing their dreams happen, I love good success, and I celebrate those who accomplish their “just right.” But let us take a moment, and let us forget about Goldilocks, and let’s take a look at the three bears. Where did that “just right” porridge come from? Mama Bear made it. She took her time to prepare it, and to make it “just right.” Let’s look at that little “just right” chair Goldilocks sat on. Who made it? Papa Bear made it. He took the wood, prepared it, and he made it “just right.” Let’s take a look at that “just right” bed Goldilocks slept on. Who made it so comfortable? Baby Bear rose early in the morning (when all baby bears arose) and he made his baby bed “just right,” like his Bear-mommy taught him. So when we take a really close look at Goldilocks’ “just right,” we can see, there was effort involved. A little sweat from the heat of the stove, where the porridge was prepared, and an early morning when Baby Bear arose to make his bed “just right.” Friend, there is another valuable lesson to learn from these three bears. Yes, they rose early, yes they worked and put in a little effort, and yes, each one had their own to-do-list in order to make things "just right," but they also made a very good effort to make time for each other. They went for a little walk as a family, to appreciate and enjoy each other.
The valuable lesson is, that in all your work, effort and endeavors, to make your just right happen, do make time for those you love and care for. After all, there is more to living than just hard work.
“I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live. That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil –this is the gift of God.” (Ecclesiastes 3:12-13 NIV)
