SoCS: prize

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “prize.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use it any way you’d like.

Keep your eyes on the prize. Stay focused on your goals and don’t slip in any bullshit; heaven knows you’ll be plodding through a lot of it. Put on good strong boots and plow ahead.

Years ago I was with a group of people; disciples of a guru who had passed away. There was only a handful of us in Canada. We were in a small meeting and amidst the talking the room became silent. The feeling of love was so overwhelming, my heart felt like it could burst. It brought tears to my eyes. I can feel it now, just remembering it.

Someone broke the silence and said softly: “We won the lottery.”

I’ll never forget that. I remind myself of it all the time; ‘keep your eyes on the prize. ‘

And, of course there is always the earworm that sings along with my thoughts.
