The duration of life is limited, as we are aware. But we often take time for granted. We live as though we will be here forever or we will be young forever. No one will ever master life and perfectly avoid the pitfalls that are set in our path. But if we live like we should, those pitfalls will not deter our path to having a healthy life. If we live with our brothers and sisters as we should, our lives will be more prosperous. We pour our focus into trying to outdo each other. We compete, compare, tear down, criticize and hate on each other, when we should be building up, empowering, encouraging and complementing each other. We live our lives based on what is trending and not on what is real. This type of living is not only trending in the secular world, but in the church as well. Pastors are more concerned with the numbers rather than the needs of those attending. The current state of the world, have folks running to and fro, seeking validation from a variety of sources, but end up feeling emptier than before. A popular celebrity recently stated that “life is lonely”. It is lonely when we use things to give us happiness, or we seek happiness from people. We must dive deeper within ourselves and seek a deeper understanding of life, through a conscious effort of connection with our Creator. Until we do so, we will continue to experience drought in our lives, a feeling of hopelessness, emptiness and loneliness.
We often say life is a mystery, but it only becomes a mystery when we try to go beyond where God wants us to go. We must remain where He leads us, so that we can fulfill His perfect will and purpose for our lives. There we will find true peace and eternal joy.

We all have high and low points in life. The key to keeping them in check is balance. Maintaining balance and having a structure, can help you whether those moments. Do not over extend yourself during the high moments, because eventually the highs will lose its steam and can become significant lows. Keep a calm demeanor and incorporate an atmosphere of meditation to counteract the lows.

Let go of whatever is no longer serving you. Stop holding on to non-existing relationships, relationships you have created in your mind, relationships standing on one leg, relationships that pull the life out of you and drain you. You cannot blame anyone but yourself when you decide to create something in your mind that does not exist in this realm. Stop bringing people into your peace, when they don't take a minute to consider you and your existence. They are life drainers. It is not about being selfish and self-consumed; in order for us to bring our best and give our best to each other, we must take the time to do self-improvement. To give our best, we must be our best.
Stop looking for fulfillment and joy in people. Search yourself and remove the toxicities that has you grappled with low or no self-worth. Rise up and realize your worth. See yourself through the eyes of our Creator and allow Him to redeem you. Like a slingshot, Christ can catapult you to another stratosphere, where you are rooted and grounded in the deep love of Christ and His redeeming grace. Give Him the authority to design the life, the man and the future you deserve. Feed upon Him and His words instead of feeding your soul with thoughts that are not based on reality.
You deserve the best, so go ahead and get it at Jesus' feet.

Explore, be creative, live, love, be the free spirit you know you are. Dream big, reach for the stars, travel if life and opportunities allow you to. Don't turn your back on anyone. Forgive often and let go of past hurt and pains. Freedom is letting go, so let go and live in freedom. Give love a second, or third chance. It is never too late to open your heart to love and to be loved. Don't live a life buried in despair or regret. Appreciate your past, for the lessons and blessings, knowing life is filled with imperfections, and you are here because you were capable of dealing with those lessons and you still are.
You are here because you are blessed and you have some wise insights to impart to others. Smile through life, but cry when you need to. You are the best by far.
