Morning Cup of Joe – Gone Tomorrow

Imagine waking up to the thunderous roar of falling concrete and twisted metal only to find that the building that once provided shelter and safety was suddenly collapsing on top of you. Your extremely loud screams seem to fall on deaf ears. You are essentially entombed like an Egyptian mummy awaiting your fate. What would you do if you lost everything tomorrow? No one can predict when disaster will strike which is precisely why we must live for today.

It is imperative that you shift your focus from the pursuit of possessing worldly things to the appreciation of the world around you. Most people surround themselves with “stuff”, inanimate objects, hoping that a lifeless item will give them life. Although some people may argue differently, things cannot provide happiness. Maintain the understanding that your happiness is solely dependent upon you. It is essential that you not invest precious hours into futile pursuits.

Whether it is an unexpected earthquake that violently shakes and rattles an island, a powerful hurricane that claims the lives and worldly possessions of a state, a mudslide that reduces a multi-million dollar home into a pile of bricks and wood or a stock-market crash that turns a millionaire into a homeless person, no one is exempt from experiencing loss of any kind. With that in mind, appreciate what you have because it could all be gone tomorrow.

To The Top!
