We Never

We never grow
Unless we stretch
Ourselves to do
That which
We've never done before.

We never see
Until we look
Beyond our
Own little world
Into the world of another.

We never hear
Until we stop
Thinking about
What we will say
And truly listen to others.

We never lead
Until we leave
The beaten path
Of other's steps
And strike out on our own.

On the other hand, when walking through the mine field of life, it never hurts to follow exactly in the footsteps of the guy ahead of you. With an appropriate intervel between you, of course.

ABsolutely true.. we can't evolve or grow unless we stretch.

One of our favorite sayings is "Don't ya know, laddie, the Lord, He loves to stretch ya!"

Thanks for the words!
