All mankind is divided into three classes…

All mankind is divided into three classes; those that are immovable,
those that are movable and those that move.

Benjamin Franklin

The immovable (in my opinion) are those that are content with where they are in life. They have no need or desire to do anything different or go anywhere further. They are happy where they are at, and as far as I am concerned, I am happy for them.

The movable (in my opinion) are those that are not necessarily unhappy where they are at, they just see where someone else is and decide they want that. They are the ones that want to climb the corporate ladder and are always out to better themselves.  There is nothing wrong with being movable in this case

The ones that move (in my opinion) are the ones that take chances, follow their dreams, push the boundaries, think outside the box and charge into the unknown with both eyes open. They are the ones who listen to the negative but don’t take it to heart. Hear the positive but don’t drown in it and stay humble throughout life.

Move on UPYes, I could have taken that analogy another way, a lower way, but why would I do that? What would that look like?

I’m sure if you thought about it, you could come up with what I started to write next but I decided against it, and I suggest you take the same road.
The immovable doesn’t need to be the stagnant, arrogant type.
The movable doesn’t need to be the low self-esteem and bullied type.

Rise above that. See the beauty in every situation (or at least try to) and when you start to see that dirty stuff trickling its way in, hit the delete button and take pride in the smile you have and hopefully, you are helping to spread.

Have a blessed day!

    I think every day is a new day to reassess your life, your faith, your priorities. I just have to stand back from my own circumstances and see life as God would have me see it. Thanks for the post!!

    I appreciate your view point, but let me share mine as it pertains to our spiritual life. We need to be followers of Christ, that means moving forward has God directs. If we are complacent or focusing on what others have that we want, then we are not allowing God to use us to His glory. For me, when I was stagnant in my faith, I was compromising and living a life unpleasing to God. I share this in love, hoping that anyone who reads this will pray for God’s direction in their life. God bless you.
