I need everyone's help. Please feel free to forward and share.
This week, I have been informed of death, after death, after death. All were relatively young, which reminded me of the fact that time is short. Therefore, if you have someone you love, show them. If you have a dream to manifest, do it. If you need to forgive or be forgiven, allow it. If you need to finish what you've started, finish. Don't take for granted that the opportunity will be available later in time for anything that you are forfeiting to do now. It might not.
When we live in moments, it's impossible to have bad days. Looking at things from the perspective of moments allow us to let go of the last moment and live for the next moment with great expectancy. While it's true that negative things can happen to us in the course of a day, it's not likely that they are going to be the only things to happen. Sometimes they're just the most memorable.
The other day I wrote a post that had improper grammar. The title that I posted was "On It's On". However, it clearly should have read "On Its Own". Since I wrote the post while I was half sleep, I didn't even notice that the mistake had been made until about half a day later. I could have gone on and said nothing about the obvious mistake, but something told me to use the error as a learning tool.
I haven't worked out in quite some time due to chronic aches and pains. However, as a result, my body has changed in manners in which I don't approve. Needless to say, I had to make a choice to work through the pain. It was hard, but I did it and will continue to do so until I achieve my desired results.
Sometimes what you need to happen is going to happen on its own. I was reminded of that fact when I stepped across the grass early this morning, and felt the wetness of the morning dew. Nobody plugged up a sprinkler and watered the grass overnight. It was just supernaturally watered on its own.
For some people, no matter how good they have it, they never seem to develop the ability to observe the overabundance of good that exists in their lives. That's unfortunate because many times they end up losing out on good things and people due to discontentment or the inability to be appreciative. Some of us have good wives or husbands, a great income, an above average job, a thriving business, exceptional health, healthy children, a loving family, a top of the line vehicle, a higher education, and a beautiful home and still have the audacity to take it all for granted. Unfortunately, many suffer from a woe is me, or victim mentality, and act like the world is totally against them, when it clearly isn't. While it is true that we'll all face hardships at times, if we look for the good even in the midst of our less appealing seasons or situations, we'll find that a measure of goodness still always exists.
Don't let your big mad get you in big trouble. At all times, it is imperative to keep your peace and have your emotions remain in check. Unfortunately, if you don't, there's a great possibility that you could end up doing something that you will regret and can't take back. Even worse, it could lead to a setback that won't be easily overcome. Don't do that to yourself.
Last year, I enrolled in an online course to get current on a certification that is necessary in my field of work. I had taken the course online years ago and remembered that the amount of work required was excessive and took forever to complete. Because I thought that I knew what was required to complete the course based on my prior experience, I delayed taking the course. As a result, to get an extension to do the certification course this year, I paid an additional $150.
For the past few weeks I have been doing some serious preparing and praying on how to go about executing some things in the next phase of my life. God has clearly put some things in my heart to do, but I felt like I needed more clarity on what to do first, second and so on. I was concerned about which pathways would be most effective and most successful in this new coronavirus era. And of course, which things needed to be abandoned.
