This was that day we were supposed to start going to the gym,to others that day we were to start working on a particular project, to others that day we were to book an appointment with the dentist, to others that day we were to draft the first chapter of a book,to others that day we were to get out of unhealthy relationships,to others that day we were to design our future home, to others that day we were to take that vacation,that day we were to recommit ourselves to our goals, that day we were to give ourselves one more chance and try something out of our comfort zones,to others that day……..
So why is this tomorrow so elusive;does it ever come to be?Is it that tomorrow is so weird that when it hears us mention its name it decides to disappear? Is tomorrow so biased that it chooses to show up for some people only?Does tomorrow exist?If it does why does it never come to be for some people?How many tomorrows do we have in a week?In a month?A year?
Where then shall we find tomorrow?
If you have today you need not look for tomorrow.Stop thinking that tomorrow you will make things right.Stop thinking tomorrow you will start working on your goals,stop thinking tomorrow you will start getting home earlier to see your spouse and kids,stop thinking tomorrow you will start learning,stop thinking tomorrow you will go see your loved parents,stop thinking tomorrow you will volunteer for that church work,stop thinking..do it today;do it now.Our time on earth is limited and tomorrow may never be.
You may be a very good and hardworking individual but lots of times you risk family hours working for your employer, then one day you get fired!
You may risk your marriage for an extra marital affair then one day they leave you with a broken marriage!
You may be very generous spending your income a good number of weekends on a few individuals,one day you lose it and they can’t step in and help you!
You may be hanging around people with no definite vision of where they are headed with you in life and one day,tables get turned and you no longer are in the picture;your time has been wasted!
So what,we don’t take risks?Absolutely not.
In life nothing great is accomplished without taking a risk.A lot of times though we are taking “small” negative risks everyday but overtime their impact can not be ignored. Get to know what REALLY matters for a risk to be involved.
My two cents though;take every risk to:
1.Live right with your creator
When it’s all done on this world and you no longer breathe,it’s unto Him you will give an account of your life.If you live right with your creator,you will also live right with the rest of His creation and do things the right way
2.Pursue your wildest dreams and make them a reality.
You have only one life.The worst that can happen is to be at your death-bed,time barred and making wishes.It will be too late.You are full of life now;take an action each day towards reaching for those things you always want to do/have.Even if you may not accomplish all of them,the process will make you a better human being and gift to humanity.
3.Enjoy your life;be happy
No matter the height and weight of everything you do,if you are not happy,you will not be fulfilled in life.Make your time on earth count.
