For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin–real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.
-Fr. Alfred D’Souza
It’s so easy to fall into that state of mind, waiting for something to happen, so we can begin the life that we want. It’s as if we put our life on pause or brush it away because things aren’t happening the way we want them to. We have a set focus of how we think our life should be causing us to waste away into the future. You could be going through a divorce or are not happy with your body; no matter the reason, we lessen the value of our life when in reality this is our life. We were all given a beautiful opportunity, a NEW YEAR. A new year to start fresh and love the beautiful gift of today. Today, you are beautiful. Today, you are loving and today, you are loved. I’m a true believer love is what makes the world go round. We all have so much love to give and we all are given something to love. It could be your children that you love, your puppy or your husband. Whatever it is you choose to love, love with all your heart. Love passionately. A life that stands for love, is a life worth loving.
