Be present where you are. Don’t miss the moment.
How many times have you found yourself occupied with something or someone only to later realize how much you’re missed?
For those who are parents. How often have we found ourselves caught in the routines of our lives before we discover our child now don’t have time for you? You can’t be mad at them, because they’re only giving you what you gave to them.
When something reminds you of that lost love one, whether it is a parent, sibling, family member, neighbor, co-worker, church member or friend, but you were too busy with your life to consider the lives of those around you?
Take the time to talk to people; think about others, even when they don’t think about you. Seize the moment, because it may be your last.
Offer a sincere love, a genuine friendship. Let people know you’re thinking of them now, not later. Contact someone who has inspired you and encourage them. Thank the person(s) who made a difference in your life and let them know that you appreciate them. Have a conversation with someone you haven’t spoken to for awhile about whatever comes to mind. Give your child a gift of your time, attention, acknowledgment and acceptance.
Love someone for no reason.
The same goes for your spouse, girlfriend/boyfriend, parents, siblings, family, friends and anyone who offers you their time.
The point is to appreciate where you are today over where you’re trying to be tomorrow. There’s so much I want to accomplish in life and sometimes feel I may never get there, but you have to sometimes encourage yourself. Regardless of your belief or disbelief, tomorrow is not promised to you. Today could be your last.
Finally, seize the moment to forgive. Oh the things I could say on this, but won’t at this time. But I’m serious about this. Forgive. Forgive beginning with yourself.The countless mistakes I’ve made… quit putting yourself through Hell for the hellish things you’ve done. The things people know and those no one or one or two may know. Ask for forgiveness, be sincere about it. Then go and do good. I know it’s more to that and it’s not that simple, but you get my point. Before I conclude I ask that you seize the moment to forgive others and ask others for forgiveness. Don’t allow the opportunity to pass you by because it may never come again. Then what could you say when or if you did not forgive.
I can keep going, but I just wanted to share this thought with you today. Share it with others.
Don’t let news of financial recession be the recession of your mind. Stimulate your life by investing in the moment.
Love is Free. Spend it Today.
