Quote of the Week

Hey folks,

I hope everyone is well. I’ve missed not blogging for the last 2 weeks and everyone’s been asking where I’ve been. As some of you are aware, I’ve been having a few difficulties with my eye sight for a little over a week now and was advised by the opticians to not go anywhere near a PC/Laptop and avoid watching TV also to give my eyes a rest. Things aren’t 100% but I feel good to continue blogging and connecting with you guys.

This weeks quote is influenced by the recent experience I’ve gone through and I feel a lot of you can learn from it also.

Go for it now. The future is promised to no one.”

How true is the above quote – The future is promised to no one!

So many times in life we put things of until tomorrow, next week or even next month and we’ve all done it at one point in our life.

It could be the smallest thing, from cleaning your bedroom to revision/coursework, reaching a deadline or even starting a new diet plan.

As humans we have a tendency to either live in the past or  the future, never really in the present – What do I mean by this?

Let’s use setting goals as an example. Far to many times I see people setting goals (which is a good thing by the way), however, their focus is on the end result too much. Rather than them enjoying the journey each day (the present) and learning from their experience on that journey, they get to wrapped up on tomorrow. When this happens, you take the fun out of reaching your goals and it becomes task rather than something you look forward to doing each day.

Let’s now use past relationships as an example – If you’ve ever had the misfortune of having your heart broken or been through a painful experience with a previous partner, this is an experience which happened in the past right (yesterday). However, you could move on to meet someone new but because of the pain you’ve gone through previously, you automatically go into autopilot and your guard is up to protect you from any hurtful feelings.

This is understandable and a natural defence system as a human being, however, imagine if that person was right for you, but because of the past, you was blocked yourself from future happiness…It happens so often.

There is no manual to life which I think is exciting because, you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow. Further more, we don’t even know if where going to live to see tomorrow which is why “We must go for it now”

If you like someone, go tell them now, what are you waiting for you? They may meet someone else and your chance is gone. Take the opportunity when it is in front of you!

If you plan to start loosing weight, don’t wait until the 1st of a new month or the start of a new week, go for it now. The sooner you start, the sooner you are to your goal which is a added bonus.

I’ve said it before, “The present is a gift” – If you’re alive right now, your more blessed than you know. No matter what you are going through, God (and I use that term loosely) never throws anything at you that you cannot handle. You need to remember this when you are going through hardship and real pain. The saying, “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” could never be more true.

It’s like a boxer in a ring, he may loose every round and eventually loose the fight, but if he continues boxing, he hasn’t really been defeated, he’s just become a stronger more advanced boxer as he has that experience to learn from and move on to bigger and better fights.

Life is way to short and the way time is flying these days, it almost feels as if we “must go for it now” rather than waiting for tomorrow (which may never come)

Like I always say, spend time with your loved ones and tell them you love them. Share gifts with those who don’t have. Smile with that old man you walk past every morning. Act from a place of love for we all share the same energy and hate for another man is really hate for ones self on a deep subconscious level (but that’s another topic for another discussion)

Remember, if you have the opportunity TODAY, go for it TODAY, as tomorrow isn’t promised.

I love you all and Stay Blessed
