This morning while biscuits were baking, I sat down and watched some cartoons with the kids. We watched about 4 episodes of Popeye and while the kids were cheering every time he downed his spinach and came up with super powers; I was questioning why did he wait to the last minute every time.
It was always when things seemed the bleakest that he opened up his spinach and changed the outcome. Why wait though? Why not have spinach for breakfast and be prepared to face the day armed with what it is going to take to conquer the “Blutos” in our life?
All of us have some Spinach available to us. Whether it is prayer, meditation, a chat with a trusted friend or a call to our mom. It empowers us and strengthens us. Yet, why do we wait until we are crumpled in the corner with our thumbs in our mouth to seek help, strength and direction? What if we were to start our day with a good ole’ helping of “Spinach”? Starting our day with strength, empowerment and direction. What would the outcome be? It may not erase every “Bluto” in our life, but it would change how we deal with them and how we come out of the situation. I encourage you to try “Spinach” for breakfast for a week and see how you feel!
