Morning Cup of Joe – Expiration

20131018-072317.jpg

When the end is finally here and you face your final curtain, before you exit the stage, what do you want to be remembered for? That is one of the toughest questions to think about especially as it relates to passing on. What do you want others to say about you when it is all said and done? What will they say? What are you going to do about it now to ensure that your memory lives on?

Some people are very comfortable talking about death and I must admit I am not one of them. Yet I would be remised if I did not help you understand the importance of living life the way God intended you to live. Since the inception of this new understanding, my principle focus has remained on how I can improve my life and the lives of those around me while I am still here to do it. Simply, how can I make every single day count and use my limited time wisely. Each day presents another opportunity to provide answers to these questions.

Please understand that while death is inevitable, living certainly is not. Just because you were born doesn’t mean you’re living. In fact, just because you are alive doesn’t mean you are living either; there is a distinct difference between the two. Understand that people are perishable items with expiration dates much like the items on your grocery list. The goal should be to get maximum use of those perishables prior to their expiration date; your life included. Maximize your full potential and do things you have always wanted to do; visit places you have always wanted to see; commit yourself to experiencing new experiences and learning new things. Your life is worth living; start living today.

Life is truly what you make it. Be sure to make it what it should be before your expiration date.

To The Top!
