…name that song!
Life is a gift. Don't waste it, or fake it.
Too often I find myself just coasting through the day, totally unaware of the beauty all around me. When you take a minute to look around, and soak up your surroundings, you might be surprised with what you see. I also take for granted my situation in life way too often… as in all the time. I think the saying "You don't know what you got til it's gone" is very true, i might add "you don't know what you got 'til you get shaken up a bit…"
Unfortunately, even after these revelations come and slap me in the face, I eventually slowly slip back into complacency. Ugh, no. I want to remember all that I've learned. Sometimes being human is just plain maddening. Do you ever feel that way?
The good news is that I am learning, growing and being molded into who I was made to be- not by me or anything by my power, but by the one who made me and knows me better than I know myself. He alone is writing my story, which is great because he is a best-selling author. Yesss.
Question of the post: What is your favorite piece of classic literature?
