Life. Without a doubt, it can truly be a whirlwind. We find ourselves hustling and bustling about, worrying and fretting over what seems to be a hundred things at a time—all of the time. The sun rises each day and it seems like before we know it, the sun has set again. Time is flying past us and we are breaking our necks trying to keep up.
Is this really what it boils down to? Is this really all it is about?
So often we get caught up in the daily routine and bombarded with stress that we fail to realize all that we are missing. We sleep on life—thinking that we have all the time in the world to do the things that we have been dreaming of; when the truth is that no set amount of time here on earth was ever guaranteed to any of us. If we continue to go and go and never take our chance for fulfillment, we may never get the chance for it. If we really want to experience all that the world has to offer, we must cease from being weighed down by the hold of our careers, families, and schedules and step out to take full ownership of our existence.
Alternative artist Jason Mraz demonstrates this subject with perfection in his song and video, “Make it Mine”. Smoother than silk, he delivers a message of becoming more aware of how you spend each moment and doing whatever that is needed to ensure a life lived to the fullest–whether it’s taking a chance on something big or simply taking time to steal away to relax. He shares the reminder that life only goes around once, and we cannot afford to wait—we owe it to ourselves to enjoy every second, minute, and hour of each day while we can.
Now is the time to take total claim of your life. Own it, show it, and no longer hold back from getting the very best out of every moment.
