Don't miss it

‘This world is made up of two kinds of people: ones who live for perfect moments and ones who takes moments and make them perfect.’

How many opportunities do we brush by?  How many chances do we take for granted?  How often do we not realize exactly what’s in front of us?  How many times do we settle for something so much less than what we deserve?

We all have regrets.  Things we wish we could’ve done or said.  But right now is the best time to never make the same mistake twice.  

‘How much I missed simply because I was afraid of missing it.’
- Paulo Coelha

Don’t miss it.  Don’t miss the moments.  Don’t miss what you have right before you.  You’re alive.  You’re still here.  There are still things you need to do, things you need to accomplish.

Maybe there’s someone you need to forgive.  Someone you need to reach out to.  Someone you need to get back in contact with.  Someone you need to say ‘I love you’ to.

Take risks.  Do the things you wish you could’ve done years ago.  Learn something new.  Become who you’ve always wanted to become.

Life is full of moments.  You can miss them, or you can take them and make them precious memories.  And not just memories for you, but for others too.  

Learn everything you can, anytime you can, from anyone you can, there will always come a time when you will be grateful you did.'
- Sarah Caldwell


'This is the day the LORD has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.'
- Psalm 118:24

  2. You have such words of wisdom! I shared your post two different places on Facebook - I hope it will bless others as much as it blessed me :)

  3. Don't try so hard to move past the moment
    These days go by and they're gone before you know it
    So come on, open your window
    Let the light shine in
    This is life, don't miss it.
