Time To Take Your Life Off Hold

Getting Married

When we first heard about COVID-19 back in 2020, I new two couples who were to be married just a month after. It was right before the lockdown. My heart goes out to does that had been planning for their big day for so long, and then everything had to be put on hold. As of today those same couple that were to get married, are still not married. Yes every girl wants that fairy tale wedding with all the glamor, but that is no what being married is about. It is about the person you will be spending the rest of your life with. So if you truly love your partner, know that God present is all you need at your matrimony, and all will be well.

Expanding your Family

These are for sure scary times we are living in. Even before COVID there are so many disastrous thing happening around us. I know a few married couples who decided they did not want to have children. Some because they did not want that type of responsibility. Others because they do not want to grow a child up in this destructive world. Both reason are understandable. But don’t let COVID hold you back from expanding your family. Have Faith!

Life Around You

There are always situation in our lives that will arise, when we will stop to think upon our end response. When COVID hit, we were all so caught of guard. Everything revolved around COVID that we kind of forgot about a different way of living. We try to take control of everything happening around us. If things are not to our satisfaction, we try to change the outcome, or postpone the inevitable. The saying goes “Life is short”. We do not know when our time will come to an end on this earth. So make sure not to put your life on hold, or you may not be granted the pleasure of holding something dear.

Time Apart

If you have not heard “Hard to Say I’m Sorry” by Chicago, have a listen!

This post is about loving your friends and family, but knowing when you need some time apart for each other. Believe it of not, time spent apart can build a relationship stronger, and have more meaning than it did before.

When you are living with someone; be it your spouse a parent or even a friend, conflict will arise that wouldn’t have if you were not living with them. Not major conflict, but little things that we all like to nitpick about. Especially when everyone likes things done their own way.

Which leads us to communicate with others about the people we live with. That would be fine……if the whole conversation was not about how annoyed and frustrated you are feeling at almost all the time.

It is easy to find yourself continuously complaining to other. When in fact, communicate to that individuals would be the first rout to take. By turning away from the person you should be speaking to, builds a huge bridge which leads to separation.

At some point, the realization will hit that people on the outside seem to know more about what is going on in your life than the people who seem to be the closes to you.

Which brings me back to the song. There is a line that says ‘Everybody needs a little time away, far away from each other’.

Family time is the best time for myself. Keep in mind for those who have children, or older parents that you share a home with, time is most definitely needed for yourself. Others can say what they want, but do not let them make you feel guilty for wanting to find a short time for you. For in that moment will you see how thankful you are for all that has been given. Rather than not have a minute, and have regrets for all the negative thought that run throw your head daily.

Find time to Mediate! Pray for Strength and Guidance.

Loneliness

At one point or another, I am sure everyone has experience the feeling of being in a room full of people, but having that sense of loneliness. Yes it is true if you do not know anyone in the room, then for sure you will feel alone.

However, how are we to explain it when there is a room full of friends and family, and still there is a feeling of not belonging.

I believe there is a life after we leave this earth. I believe there is a GOD up there. If you do not believe, then how do you wake up in the morning and get through each and every day?

We come into this world alone (unless you are a twin, triplet ect.). We go through life with so many people coming and going. Even to the point when we find our significant other, there is still moments when we can not shake that feeling that there is no one to talk to, no one to turn to.

Of course anyone on the outside looking in would say, ‘you have so many friends and family, how can you ever feel there is no one to talk to?’

But to understand it, you need to live through it. It does not matter how many individual there is surrounding you, loneliness is something everyone will experience. Some will say this is what leads to mental illness. I say let this lead you to GOD!

Procrastination

Everyone can say life is a cycle of non ending tasks. Just when it feels that you have accomplished all that is needed, something else arises. Be it something stressful in life, or something joyful like planning a party, or booking a vacation. It is still a task that needs to be looked at and dealt with accordingly.

I know some individual don’t care much to plan. And then there are the others who can not seem to get anything done, unless they have a daily schedule on what needs to be completed.

It doesn’t matter which category you fall under, the same is true for all of us one point or another…….we waste time. Every moment is precious, yet even knowing that we don’t use our time wisely at moments. There are important task at hand, waiting for our attention, but we would rather spend our time watching/doing foolishness.

When we do this, we fail no one else but ourselves. Because when the time comes that you are not prepared, the only person you want to kick in the a*$ is yourself…..but what we do, is look for someone else to blame instead.

I myself am guilty of wasting time. There can be many reason why we do it. However, please do not let this take control of you. For sure we all need a break from life, and are encouraged to do things we enjoy. Even so there will come a time when realization hits that all the useless ways you were spending your time, does noting to help you get through this life we are living.

WASTE A FEW MINUTES HERE AND THERE, BUT BE CAREFUL NOT TO WASTE YOU LIFE AWAY
