I find it strangely odd that the older I get, the faster the days, weeks, months, years go by. I remember being in elementary school and the day just would draaaaaaaaaag on and on. Friday seemed so far away. Now is a different story, at times it seems like there is not enough time in the day to get everything I needed to get done. Life does go by at lighting pace at times and I have grown to love it. While there are times in which I have to “slow” down, I embrace the fast pace in which life is facing me.
I don’t know about you but I love everyday that I live, now granted some days are way better than others, I do love every day. I see how life brings its ups and downs but I realized something…My life has a meaning to it. I do not live a monotonous life. I have been created with a purpose, with a destiny and that purpose/destiny is slowly being revealed to me each day and that is what drives me.
2010 is closing fast and as great, as trying, as fulfilling 2010 has been; I look forward to 2011, to 2012, to 2013 (yes I believe we will still be here after December 21st, 2012). Now I am not so looking ahead that I am not grounded in the “now”, that is far from the truth, but I can see back in my life and know that I am walking in a path that GOD himself is directing. This is very exciting and very scary at the same time.
So what am I trying to say?
If you are living your life like the 1980’s hit “Working for the weekend” by Loverboy, then there is something wrong. Our lives shouldn’t be merely lived by just getting by, and it is a shame that many of us live that way…
Could it be that we haven’t found our purpose in life? Could it be that we don’t value ourselves? Could it be that we don’t think we are worthy? Could it be that we are just lazy?
What is stopping you from reaching your destiny?
