I’m not a big Dr. Seuss fan, but I like this quote.
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
Life is a constant moving forward from one thing to another.
You’re only sixteen for a year, and then one fine day you wake up, and boom, you are forty something.
It happened. You grew up. You lived through your days and you can’t get them back.
Don’t be sad.
Forty will lead to fifty and on from there. Take the advice from Dr. Seuss, and smile because it happened. Time marched on and you were a part of it.
Be thankful for all the days you’ve lived.
Life is all about living in the present moment. So, when you’re nineteen don’t wish for twenty-one, or if your fifty don’t wish for thirty again.
Because today is it, this moment is where the action is, don’t just put in your hours, live your life.
One way to do that is to stay open and dependent on God.
How often do we forget that God will provide all that we need?
Isaiah 58:1-9a reads, “Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer, you shall cry for help, and He will say: Here I am!”
A new beginning with God awaits all who hear His voice.
There is no reason to be sad. With God life never ends.
God loves you.
