“This is your life. Do what you want and do it often.
If you don’t like something, change it.
If you don’t like your job, quit.
If you don’t have enough time, stop watching TV.
If you are looking for the love of your life, stop; they will be waiting for you when you start doing things you love.
Stop over-analysing, life is simple.
All emotions are beautiful.
When you eat, appreciate every last bite.
Life is simple.
Open your heart, mind and arms to new things and people, we are united in our differences.
Ask the next person you see what their passion is and share your inspiring dream with them.
Travel often; getting lost will help you find yourself.
Some opportunities only come once, seize them.
Life is about the people you meet and the things you create with them, so go out and start creating.
Life is short, live your dream and wear your passion.”
― Holstee Manifesto, The Wedding Day
Seems pretty simple doesn’t it, the task of living. Sadly, far too many people forget that one purpose of living is to have life. Life with its joys and its sorrows. Its times of struggles and its times of ease. Life whose days were filled with laughter and tears and begin again fears.
Begin again fears? We’ve all had those times where our life season is at its time to begin again. All the graduations, from preschool through college, where folks are celebrating finishing the season they are in. Most of whom don’t look at it as a chance to celebrate the what is about to come! The new journeys of life.
One of my favorite passages from God’s Words is Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
3 There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,
4a time to weep and a time to laugh,a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
Take time to pray tonight, are you living or are you alive? What time are you in? Is it the right time? Talk with God. As the Master and Creator or both time and you, He has the answers and he’ll let you in on the answers, as long as you’re in the season for listening.
Peace be with you all.
