"Better to live in a tent on the beach with the person you LOVE, than to live in a mansion by YOURSELF."
~ Jim Rohn
We spend more time making a LIVING than making a LIFE with our loved one. We spend more time TYPING than TALKING. We spend more time looking at screens than into ourselves' and each other's eyes, and hearts and souls.
We spend more time and effort on that PROJECT in the garage, or shed, or office, or craft room, or job, or computer, or gym than we do our own personal development; and especially more than on the man, woman or child we SAY we LOVE.
The Bible says, "What profiteth a man to gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?" And yet, we see people make this poor trade all the time. And WE do it, too; and justify it, the whole time.
We openly and verbosely obsess about making our THINGS perfect, while our most valuable relationships slowly deteriorate and quietly crumble from within.
What is really going to matter to you at the end of this life?
In those moments when you take your last breath; when your eyes close for the last time here on this earth, where will your attention be?
Your project, golf game, car, house, hobby, fishing, the sports team you spend hours following, the weekly night out with the boys or girlfriends?
The pile of papers you still have unattended to?
The dishes in your sink?
Your perfect house or manicured lawn?
We aren't promised tomorrow. We see it every day with those around us; and yet, somehow we think, or choose not to think, that our LAST moment here or with that person we SAY we love won't REALLY happen sooner than later.
We'll have time to get that relationship on track, right? We'll have the opportunity to say the healing words. We'll get another chance to say "yes", to our loved one, instead of, "I'm sorry, I'm hooked up" with something that means NOTHING in the grand scheme of things.
Take a few moments to think about what you REALLY love. Think about how you would feel if he or she was gone, or if YOU were gone with words unsaid, and with actions undone?
Your STUFF won't love you back.
YOU know what you need to do.
So, DO it.
I MEAN IT. STOP what you're doing RIGHT now.
Go do that thing. Go say those words. Go hold that person. Go kiss those lips. Go make it right. Go say you're sorry. Go rebuild what is breaking. Go resusitate what is dying. Go forgive.
This cannot wait for "someday".
Do it NOW.
The other stuff can wait. I promise it'll be there when you get back.
No one is promised tomorrow.
PLEASE DON'T WAIT.
