Drink the Water

What should you do if you’re lost in a desert and someone brings you water?

Drink it.

Last week I wrote about my goal to “Be the Water”, and tonight I want to encourage those who need “the water” to use it when it’s given.

If you’re lost in the desert, don’t hope to find your way out.  Don’t wait for it to rain. Don’t be foolish and stubborn.

I personally have many regrets about hurting mentors, missing opportunities, and wasting “the water” when it was needed.  What a waste.

  • If you’re thirsty, drink.
  • If you’re dirty, wash.
  • If you’re a fish, swim.
  • If you’re a sailboat, sail.

No matter how strong we may be, there comes a time when we all need “the water”.  If we don’t take it, we may discourage those trying to help and delay the growth we need to help be the difference to others.

Drink the water!

Have a great night,

  1. Aaron,

    As water is an essential element for every living thing,
    it’s inspiring that you’ve written this series of posts in conjunction with World Water Day.

    As you note, in order for living things to thrive, a certain affiliation exists between the nourished and the nourisher, the water and the soil, the ebb and the flow, the gift-giver and the recipient.

    All living things need a complementary energy to successfully help them take root and prosper. Your emphasis on water is an apropos metaphor emphasizing interdependence as a reality of life.

  2. Thanks for the kind words sir. The older I get, the more I realize that it truly does “Take Two to Tango” in the dance of life.

    Thanks for sharing, commenting, and being a great all around 8pm Warrior.
