Okay, like seriously! I just checked my blog stats and realized that my last post was over a month ago. Seems like it was just yesterday (I know, so cliché). Another prime example that time waits for no man/woman! The reality is we get caught up in the daily rat race, and tasks that we deem lesser priority get pushed to the back burner. I know I am very guilty of saying “I will do so and so tomorrow, next week, or next month”. Taking for granted that tomorrow may never come. I have experienced the regret of putting things off. Here is a poem I wrote when my dad passed away.
I am speechless, words don’t come to mind
Where did this time go, the days I let slip by
I’m dealing with the regret, wishing I could hug you one more time
You are my daddy, oh father of mine
I’m so sorry and this pain I have to deal
I wish we had more time, but our tomorrow was never revealed
I treasure the memories and will see you in my dreams
I will hold you in my heart until we meet again
Love Always and Forever, Tashia
As you can see, I let time slip away. With the recent realization that I let a month get away from me, a change has to be made. What do I do now?
It means that:
- I have to laugh more.
- I have to tell my family and friends how much they mean to me and that I love them.
- I have to spend more time with my family and friends.
- I have to be more spontaneous.
- I have to spend time each day addressing or completing a task that will get me closer to living my purpose.
I can no longer say I will do it tomorrow – now is the time. From this day forward, live in the present – it is a gift. If you are blessed to see another day, be thankful and make the best out of every moment!
