Don't wait until it's too late
Hi guys! So it's a short but vital point today.
One thing I've learnt in this short period of my life is that I shouldn't wait until it's too late. I can't live my life waiting until things get better before I grasp laughter and joy. I can't live life working until I drop without finding the time to live and enjoy life. Life is too short to wait for a better time.
I don't want to be the one to say it, but let's be honest, unless you have complete surety in Christ, you never know when your time is up. We're supposed to live our life daily as if it's our last.
You will never know if the opportunity to do a certain thing is the last time you'll get that opportunity.
Or whether the chance to say what's been on your mind, is the last chance to say it.
The past two years have shown us that the most unexpected things can happen. The world has been left reeling from Covid-19 and I don't think anyone was prepared for it. Who would've thought that life would change so drastically? So many people have lost their lives, family members, friends and livelihoods. I promise you that some people have thought "I wish I had". I know I had moments when I wished I'd done something or taken a chance before Covid-19 happened.
Anyone who has ever found love or made money has taken a chance. They've made good use of the opportunities they were given. Now don't get me wrong, I'm talking to myself as well. I'm not the best at trying new things and taking chances. I like to evaluate and evaluate and evaluate things before doing them. This means that I don't always grasp opportunities when they come my way and sometimes I miss those opportunities.
I met someone on Instagram and it was my discussions with this person that helped motivate me to start this blog. I'd wanted to do something for a while and I felt like I needed it to be perfect before putting anything out. The issue with that is the fact that nothing is ever perfect on your first try. So I kept procrastinating until this friend of mine told me that I'd never start if I kept waiting for it to be perfect. So I set a deadline and once I set a time, I have to do it. So regardless of how perfect my website was or not, I started this blog and God has been so faithful.
Perfection is attainable, yes. But it's not attainable until you actually start. You have to make the move, say that thing, live your life, take the first step before you can actually attain perfection. If you keep waiting for the perfect moment or the perfect circumstances, you may never do what you need to do.
It's important that we learn to live in the moment and grow bold so that we don't miss out on life. I know that I've missed out on a few things, but I'm currently working on doing what needs to be done when it needs to be done, and I'm also working on living and not just surviving or existing. I really didn't come to this life to suffer. I cannot come and kee myself.
Guys guess what? You may be willing to wait, but that person or that opportunity may not. So how will you feel if you lose anymore opportunities and stayed timid in life because of fear or because of what society demands of you.
Fam! I've learnt to live my life to please God and myself. I genuinely cannot come and kee myself. I'll never please everyone and that's okay. The one being that I want to please at all times is God, so in this period and in this moment, I'm going to take my chances and do things my way (with God's direction). I'm not going to follow the timing that society has set for me and I'm not going to keep following the norm while losing parts of myself because I'm not living life or taking chances. Or because I'm waiting for the perfect time. Nah, not anymore.
So please don't wait until it's too late to apologise, say that you love him/her, take that chance, meet God, show love, enjoy life etc. Life is too short to keep waiting for the perfect time or for someone to do it for you or to do it first.
Anyways, guys, it's a short and sweet one, it's been a really busy two weeks for me, but I really wanted to stay consistent and true to myself.
Please remember that I love you and God loves you.
