1. forward or onward movement toward a destination.
“the darkness did not stop my progress”
I’m reminded of the evolution of the human existence, when I think of the definition o the word progress; “forward or onward movement toward a destination.” Never, in all of our years of being human, has there been a time when progression was impeded. God may have flooded the earth at one point in time, but the earth and all the life left in it, kept progressing.
Time never ceases, seasons keep flowing, and humans continue to populate the earth, creating and edifying all that we enjoy on this great planet.
You see, what I am attempting to conclude is that progress is about continuance, continuity, and confluence. You may think that losing that job put a damper in your immediate success, but that loss was an integral part of your progress, though seemingly uncomfortable.
That’s why “boulders made progress difficult,” but not obsolete or impossible. You can never cease progress, because that is not how it was designed. Every loss, every gain, every pitfall, every triumph, is a stepping stone in your progress; one cannot happen without the other.
So, when you are feeling as though you have hit rock bottom, or you feel as though you have reached your ceiling in life, just remember that progress says there is more to come; more chances for you to have a ‘do over,’ and more chances for you to triumph again and again.
Always remember, that in this life, ‘boulders may make progress difficult,’ but never obsolete.
Keep progressing my friends…
