Life is such a precious gift granted to us and we don't have a whole lot of time to live it.
"Looking at the hand of time we've been given here
This is all we've got and we've gotta start picking it
Every second counts on a clock that's ticking"
[The Script - Live Like We're Dying]
"We've only got 86 400 seconds in a day toTurn it all around or throw it all away"[The Script - Live Like We're Dying]
A lot of people spend such an incredible amount of time being depressed and "in the blue" and forget that there are others around them who care for them. It's understandable to feel a little down when certain events occur. It's unreasonable to
believe that there's something so wrong with you that you believe your existence is nothing but a hindrance in the life of others.
"He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out of the mud and mire. He set my feet on the solid ground and steadied me as I walked along"[Psalm 40:2, NLT]
Death remains a mystery. Does one really get the freedom one looks for in death? Or does one suffer much agony if one takes one's life? I'm in no rush to find out.
"We never know a good thing till it's goneYou never see a crash until it's head on"[The Script - Live Like We're Dying]
There are so many great things on Earth to live for. Adventures, mysteries, sights and wonders of the earth and universe in the sky above, goals, family, friends...even strangers. It is my goal to become the best person I can be to help others...friends and strangers alike...because the life of another means the world to me. Sometimes just a simple "hello" is all the comfort a person needs.
What happens next? No one can really know. But I look forward to it each step a take, over the good stones and the bad.
So tell me, what are you living for?
