Today is National Cocoa Day. And no, I don’t know who decides these things, so we move on.
Speaking of moving on…
The secret to keeping moving is keeping moving.
American actor, singer, and dancer, Dick Van Dyke, was born on this day in 1925.
I grew up watching The Dick Van Dyke Show. I think was actually an adult before I saw him in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins. What an amazing career that man has had.
At 91-years-old he’s not tripping over ottomans any more. Or Turks, for that matter.
See what I did there?
But he’s right that the secret is to keep moving.
My arthritis tells me that every day. Sure, sometimes it hurts to move. It hurts more when I don’t. And I know that if I stop moving because it hurts I’m not likely to get going again.
It’s the same in life. When we think we’re stuck, when we think we can’t go on, when we think there’s no way out, the secret (which really isn’t a secret) is to just keep going.
It may seem like there’s no way out, but there always is.
It may not be pretty. It may not be fun. But things will change.
Your faith perspective may vary, but there’s hope.
And hot chocolate.
