My Sunday Quote of The Week...

“God has promised forgiveness to your repentance, but He has not promised tomorrow to your procrastination.”
~Augustine of Hippo

Time is on my side…. NOT really…

I read somewhere a long time ago, “Life is too short for those who live, too long for those who survive, too tough for those who endure, and easier for those who learn.”
We like to think that time is our greatest ally, and so we decide to not look at our clocks, because all the things that are done without a timeline, or without pressure, will be well achieved… or so we believe. We decide to hold off on taking stands, apologizing, and giving forgiveness because we count on tomorrow to be a "better" day to move forward, let go and change… but all the while we forget. We forget that time doesn’t stop or adjust itself to suit the rhythm of one’s life… time keeps ticking…

I have come to realize this moment, today is of the essence; time is of the essence and needs to be treated as a rare commodity. At the end of the day, all that you touch, all you see, and all that you have is all your life will ever be... today.
You have no guarantee but this moment, this day to make the changes needed… to make meaningful decisions. So put on your helmet and pads and venture forth! You may get knocked around a little, you may make mistakes but what's a roller coaster ride without a few bumps?

Life can be as short as today’s sunset but can be as long as tomorrow sunrise; so remember it should be worth something especially if it is short. If you're waiting to do right, you could end up with a useless, long, fruitless life…
