Imagine for a moment you have died...imagine you could come back to life for one day...what would you do? What would be your motivation for coming back just for 24 hours? Would it be - To see a loved one, to put someone's mind at ease, to right a wrong, unfinished business...to tell the truth...or to hide the evidence (lol)... Are we the same in death as we are in life?
My motivation would be to see the people I love, to hug them and tell them how much they mean to and ask them to live their lives in happiness (and to remind them to be kind to each other, for there is not enough kindness in the world)....also, to treat each day as if it was their last, to believe in themselves, to make every moment count!
The clock is always ticking...we're here to learn, to grow & to live by faith...every single day is a gift.
I hear so many people say 'I'm just killing time' or 'what am I going to do with the day.' Some are so busy running around chasing their tails that they forget to enjoy life... Time is precious, you don't want to kill it...embrace it, seize the day!
My Grandfather used to say 'Don't cry, life's too short to cry!' He was right...I don't have time for tears. As challenging as the moment is...it's not the worst of it...it's not the best of it...it's not fun...but it's not insurmountable! I am not beaten, I am not defeated, I am not licked, it is not over...the journey continues, just in a different way!
I know this challenge will bring me to where I need to be, teach me what I need to know, and give me the tools to achieve more things in my life. I know this is happening for a reason, and I am not going to shirk from experiencing it, or learning the lessons...I am not going to give up!
While I walk a difficult path today I know the terrain will be different tomorrow. It always is.
