I stole this quote from a dear friend of mine and I hope that she doesn't mind. I had to...it resonated with me beyond belief. I often look at my life this way. I often look at my life and think to myself, I'll do better when I'm in this circumstance or this situation or I will be happier when this is the senario. Well, as I read this quote, I began to see it...I began to see that I am wasting it, my life, and if I'm not careful, tomorrow will not come and I will have regrets. By God's grace, each day will make sense and I will live it to it's absolute fullest and look at my life and realize it is a gift to be used. Not wasted! I am blessed!
For a long time it seemed to me that life was about to begin—real life. But there was always something to be gotten through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt still to be paid. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life. This perspective has helped me to see there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So treasure every moment you have and remember that time waits for no one.-Souza
