Thanks to student loan payments getting the better of me, I decided to return to the real world and get a full time job outside of the home. So far it’s been great and the job itself has been a blessing, so no complaints. However, there was no way that I would be able to not write or pursue my real passion of inspiring through literature or motivating those who follow this blog.I truly believe that my destiny is tied into helping others reach their destiny, so I don’t plan on straying away from that or negating this blog any longer. It’s totally hypocritical for me to encourage others to pursue their purpose in life while I ignore mine for the sake of doing what everyone else wants me to do. That’s not right.
However...there have been great lessons that I’ve learned over the past few weeks since I’ve last posted an article for you all:Love will make you do what you have to do, in order to do what you want to do.
Simply because I know that I love my family so much, I give up some things and swallow my pride for other things in order to get to what I truly want in the long run—a happy life. So many of us have yet to learn that it’s not always about what we want. It’s not about what we think pleases others. It’s about what will guarantee us a happy life. If that means doing what we have to do in order to do what we want to do, then so be it. Don’t be selfish, be selfless.Love from your Family is the most important thing in the world.
We should always keep that in the forefront of our minds as we wake up each day. We never truly know if that special someone will be around before you get to see them again…whether it's a mother, father, spouse, child...so we should always treat our family members with the love that God treats us to. At the end of the day, what they have done in their past or how much you wanted him or her to change…if they were to pass away in the next moment, life wouldn’t be the same. So we should cherish our family; every single day. I learned this when my stepfather passed away almost two weeks ago. I never got a chance to see him again, but I’m glad that he knew I loved him and so did my siblings.Overall, I’m glad that I was able to reevaluate some things and rearrange some priorities. At the end of the day, we should always pursue our purpose but we should always make sure that we’re doing it selflessly instead of selfishly.
So...keep love at the center...until we meet again.
