Rachel wrote this post to start the new year and I think it is the perfect theme to start off the new year. Read the post before my thoughts so they actually make sense.
My thoughts: I think it applies to so many things. I have experienced the vinegar to get to the honey many times in the past. It is about taking the risk, surpassing the fear, and jumping; and the bigger the risk the better the honey will taste. Primarily for me, I think there is a lot of “vinegar” to taste when one lives a life surrendered to God, but it will ultimately lead to the best of “honey”. Sometimes you get a glimpse of the bliss or a small taste of the honey along the way to keep you motivated to reach the goal of happiness or to get to the whole jar of honey. May you all find your jar!
Since it’s the new year, I thought a motivational post would be necessary. I know it’s “cliche”; everybody will probably write that this year is a NEW year which means a NEW YOU!! And give tips on how to accomplish your New Years resolution. Whether it be eat healthier, work out more, be more optimistic, etc. But I wanted to write it from the other prospective. And you’ll see what I mean by the end of this (well I hope you do)
