Have you ever slowed down from your hectic life and sat in silence long enough to take a deep look into the mirror?
What did you see?
How were you feeling?
Did you recognize the person staring back at you?
Sometimes when our lives get chaotic and we continue to wake up everyday and go through the motions of our daily routines, we tend to get lost in the people & things that surround us and lose our own identity & lose sight of our priorities.
When you have an overwhelming amount of priorities to contend to, do you still make time yourself?
Do you make time to be with family & friends, to spend with God, to exercise, to eat healthy, or to count your blessings?
Well, your unkept house will still be there tomorrow!
Your laundry and your dishes will still be there tomorrow!
The bills will still be there tomorrow!
Your money will still be there tomorrow!
But what I do know for sure…
You may not be here tomorrow!
Your family & friends may not be here tomorrow!
Your children will never again be this young tomorrow!
Your health may not be as good tomorrow!
Unfortunately, time does not slow down and money does not buy love nor happiness, but time is of the essence!
You can never get back the precious time you’ve wasted on things that really don’t matter.
So where are YOU at in your overwhelming list of your priorities?
If you are anything like me, you are probably at the bottom of that list!
Fortunately, it is never to late to change that…to make yourself a priority! Don’t you think you deserve that? Well you do! You deserve to slow down, exercise more, eat healthier, be happier, be at peace, spend more time with the people you love, work at a job that brings you happiness, take up a hobby or sport that brings you joy, or spend more time with God.
God wants you to enjoy the life that He has given you! So, what are you waiting for?
Take that leap of faith, conquer your fears & go for it!
If you are too busy for God, yourself, and the people whom you love, then you are way more busy then God ever intended you to be!
Slow down enough to enjoy your life and learn to love yourself enough to be the best you that God intended you to be!
Blessings & love….
