This life will go by fast…

This Life Will Go By Fast
Don’t fight with people, don’t criticize your body so
much, don’t complain so much.
Don’t lose sleep over your bills. Look for the person
that makes you happy. If you make a mistake, let it go
and keep seeking your happiness.
Never stop being a good parent. Don’t worry so much
about buying luxuries and comforts for your home,
don’t kill yourself trying to leave an inheritance for
your family. Those benefits should be earned by each
person, so don’t dedicate yourself to accumulating
Enjoy, travel, enjoy your journeys, see new places,
give yourself the pleasures you deserve. Allow dogs to
get closer. Don’t put away the fine glassware. Utilize
the new dinnerware; don’t save your favorite
perfume, use it to go out with yourself; wear out your
favorite sports shoes; repeat your favorite clothes.
So what? That’s not bad. Why not now? Why not
pray now instead of waiting until before you sleep?
Why not call now? Why not forgive now? We wait so
long for Christmas; for Friday; for Reunions; for
another year; for when I have money; for love to
come; when everything is perfect… look…
Everything perfect doesn’t exist. Human beings can’t
accomplish this because it simply was not intended to
be completed here. Here is an opportunity to learn.
So take this challenge that is life and do it now…love
more, forgive more, embrace more, love more
intensely and leave the rest in God’s hands. AMEN
