The past couple of months have caused me to reflect a great deal. Explosions at the Boston Marathon. Tornados all across the country, the worst of which may have been in Oklahoma. My goal here is not to bring you down. Rather, it's to relate to you that it's time we all take stock in what blessings we really have. The blessings that we largely take for granted. I have been so very guilty of this myself. I have spent too much time complaining, thinking negatively, and generally not being the man that I know I can be. The man I believe God knows I can be. Life is short. Tell everyone you care about how you feel about them - not just once - but every day. Better yet, show them. Make them feel it. It doesn't have to be some grand gesture that costs a ton of money. Little things matter. Do not let the next moment turn into the next day, or the next year, until it's too late and you didn't get to say everything you wanted to say to someone. Life is precious. It can end as quickly as it began. In a heartbeat. Do your best to truly live it every day.
As we head into June, I want to hear about how you are living this out. I need inspiration and motivation to do this myself. Inspire me! Show me what you've got. Post it in the comments of my blog, or my Facebook page, or message me on Facebook. I want to hear about how we can turn this world around, one person at a time. And don't text the person to tell them. CALL THEM! Or better yet - GO SEE THEM! Isn't that a crazy idea?
Hopefully my next post will be longer and more insightful. But until then, hit me with your best stories of how you are going to live your life in such a way that the people around you know how much they mean to you.
Have a great weekend! See you next month!
