Inspiration from my Dear Friend, Jonathan

Personal Fulfillment through Delayed Gratification

Delayed gratification, is the ability to resist the temptation for an immediate reward and wait for a later reward

It’s one of those lifetime moments

When you have a natural ecstatic moment

Given by the essence of “being” and "persevering"

It is healing to the mind, body, soul and spirit

To finally have that moment of personal achievement

Sometimes, days, months, years gone by

The denial of some things that are too good to reject

But you had a vision of something more rewarding

For this one particular life achievement or moment

Personal sacrifices to the hilt, have been made

Waiting with patience and due diligence

And finally “the moment” has arrived

All the hard work, disappointments, is it worth it moments? fatigue, depression,
good days, bad days, really bad days, missing out on wonderful occasions

Have finally paid off

And sometimes magically and surprisingly, not in the way that you expected

While being able to recognize that a blessing is a gift from God

And often, it is better than what was expected

Oh, the experiences that came along with it

The lessons learned along the way

Coming face to face with extreme temptation

Yet, staying focused

Not listening to the naysayers

But holding onto the faith

Knowing that the fulfillment of each delayed gratification moment

Is a higher rung  

Leading to self-fulfillment and/or self-realization
