Rejoice in the Time You Have Left
It’s sad to think of our lives ever coming to an end, but that’s the reality of being human and living on earth. We are only here about a hundred years or less and unless we live it to the fullest, that time can be spent in struggle, misery, and pain.
November is a time for thanksgiving to rejoice in all the blessings we have been given from our abundant creator. Regardless of your personal beliefs, this planet didn’t just fall out of the sky nor did we or all the things that make life wonderful such as family, cotton, air conditioning, good food, or music. Being grateful for what we have now creates positive energy that attracts more of the same. The practice of appreciating everything we have, love, and hold dear as well as everything we take for granted helps us create a grateful heart that is awake, aware, and available to the mystery and magic of life unfolding in each present moment.
Letting others know how important they are to us now, is vitally important to cherishing our relationships because it acknowledges the love and affection that is at the core of life and connects us to each other. Furthermore, when we show our emotions we give others permission to do the same and allow a natural flow of energy to occur unencumbered by unresolved issues, doubt, or regret. Many people at the end of their lives say that regret was their biggest enemy that robbed them of a more wonderful life filled with opportunities for greater joy, happiness or real love.
To counteract regret, we must live each day as if it is our last and seize the moment! Life is an adventure; that must be experienced. Stop sitting on the sidelines allowing it to pass you by or else it will and all you’ll have it regret. Rejoice in the time you have left on this planet and in this earth suit called our physical body. Celebrate all of your working faculties and don’t take anything for granted as any portion of it could be taken away in the blink of an eye. I am reminded by an old saying, “life is fragile, handle with care”. When we take heed this advice we’re reminded of human frailty and our need for gentleness in the form of compassion and nurturing.
I am grateful for all my readers as well as my family and our beloved puppy Buttercup. Thank you for your support.
Affirmation: Today, I am grateful for all of the loved ones in my life, for all the abundance I’ve been blessed with and I celebrate my health so that I may enjoy it all with grace and ease.
