Life is too short to...

Recently I had a person that I knew closely to pass away. It was a shocked to everybody that this had happened, but it wasn’t a shocking to God because He truly knows our beginning and our ending. Over the last few months, I have been hearing about the death of many people I knew.  So in sitting and attending some of the funeral services, I started to think “life is too short to”, and then the list started. I see and hear so many stories of people disagreeing on this and that, and it’s not even relevant to anything important. Fighting. Killing. Gossiping. Back stabbing. Cheating. Lying. All of these things and more don’t make it worth it. Life is too short to do any of those things to anybody.  We are so quick in worrying about getting revenge on someone and that person is not even thinking about you or the situation. How can we go to God and ask Him for forgiveness when we can’t even get along with our fellow man/woman that we see on a regular basis?

If you sit and think about if I wasn’t here, I wonder what would happen? To my family? To my friends? To my job? To my church? To my car? To my house?  Guess what? It’s going to keep on going. Many of us stress over so much, I know I do, and don’t realize that it is killing us. Stress is a dangerous thing. I have learned now that I can only control the things that I can control and everything else I don’t worry about.  Don’t put yourself in a situation that you know that is going to be very stressful and you end up getting sick over it. It’s not worth it.

Take time for yourself and enjoy life. “Life is too short to” not enjoy your life.  Enjoy your family. That job is going to go on whether you’re there or not.  Go to a nice restaurant and enjoy dinner. Go to a concert of your favorite artist. Go on a nice getaway trip. Go get a spa. Go to the salon and get pampered. Go enjoy LIFE!! You don’t want to go on in life regretting everything you did just because you didn’t have the money to do this and that.

Until next time,
