Life isn’t everything, the only words uttered during Elton John’s “Song for a Guy”, a total of five minutes and that is all that is said, how prophetic is that?
When one thinks of life we always tend to focus on the things we have, the material possessions and the inconsequential things that at the end of the day mean absolutely nothing. We don’t focus on those little moments in time that mean the world to us, the small gestures that people do, the happiness that one smile can bring or the heat of a sunny day on our backs.
When we wake up in the morning we do not know if it is our last, we do not know what heart ache could come our way or what disappointments lay in wait for us. If we go through out the day expecting them we may miss the things that we store in our hearts for the rainy days. If we are negative all the time how do we build up the winter storage within our souls to enable us to get through the dark patches?
Life isn’t everything, there is more to life than meets the eye, if we open them we shall also see the beauty that surrounds us and the hearts little treasures that lie waiting for us to pick up and store. This is my message to you today, do not store the things that mean nothing in reality. Rather, put a smile on your face and actively look for the things with meaning for they will be the very things that pull you through a dark day, not a shiny new toy or the petty argument you just had.
Life is short, live it…!
