“The greatest moments in history”. Notice how it doesn’t say, the greatest things that happened over the course of a couple of weeks in history. Life changing events, World Changing events. Those happen in moments, one minute your life is going by as normal, nothing new under the sun. Then BOOM, those dreams you’ve been praying for every night come true. Treasure those moments in your life defining moments that come, good or bad. They happened for a reason and its going to change your life.
Nothings is new, but everything is relevant.
I can’t express to you how excited I was for 2014, I had all these plans, ideas, dreams! I knew exactly what I had to do and how I was going to do it. It would be calm, planned and organized. I hope you got a good giggle out of that, because as I’m sure you know better than anyone else, life doesn’t work that way. Never has, never will. I met an amazing lady this month, now were dating. I’m about to start an internship program, while still trying to maintain my normal job and make time for this awesome lady. This is not the way I pictured any of these things happening.
You can’t always get what you
want , But if you try sometimes well you might find, You get what you need.
Great song right? Such simple lyrics, but yet so powerful if you really just listen to it. Honestly, I love the stuff happening in my life right now. Trust me if I had a choice, I would have chosen not to have certain things happen just yet. I would have held somethings off until I felt I was ready for it. I wonder if George Washington was ready to become the first president of our nation, Was Jesus ready to go to the cross? I don’t believe any of us are really ready for any big change in our life.
Will you adapt? will you die?
Life never asked us to be ready, it asked us if were willing to change. I’m terrified of these new things happening in my life. 40 hours a week at my job already seems stressful enough, how am I going to handle working 60+ hours and try to maintain a healthy relationship? I want to run into a hole and cower under a rock, you know what that place is called under the rock? Complacency. If you find yourself under that rock, you might as well start picking out your outfit for your funeral. These important moments only come our way a handful of times in life, don’t let them slip by you. Your life will change, whether you like it or not.
Complacency is just a fancy word for death.
