I often wonder how can people allow their lives to pass by without purpose or reason.
When I ask a youngster what is he planning for the future and he tells me he has no idea or has never thought about it, quite honestly, I feel like asking him how much longer will he waste his days?
Have you ever thought that when the clock strikes midnight, this day is over and you will never have it again?
You may have similar days … you may have better days, but you will never have this particular day again.
The day I realised this, I decided to make every one of my days count. I cannot accept that I can live one day without making something special of it, without touching someone in some way, without growing within myself or without leaving some mark.
I cannot accept letting a week go by without seeing changes or improvement in myself or in the situation around me because, the truth is, I will never ever live through this very same week again.
And this realisation has made me value even more this day, this week, this month, this year.
Life is too short and precious to be ruled by complexes, insecurities, depression, low self-esteem and a heavy load that tends to pull you back instead of pushing you ahead towards your dreams.
See the butterfly -- the most enchanting insect we have. Most live for a maximum of a month while other species sometimes have a lifetime of nine months.
Still, they don’t waste time and they quickly make sure they mate so that their species will continue on earth. They have a short lifespan but they use it to guarantee the future.
And how they display God’s glory in this world through their beauty!
In the same way, use this day to build your future. Do not be chained by words and feelings meant to knock you down and out.
Make each and every day count in your life.
