Let me explain...
Time is the most valuable commodity a human being has. That's why you need to allocate it with conscious intent. That's also why I spend so much time
on everything I'm so passionate about. Every single day I know I'm spending it wisely (some days I do better than others, but I reflect on that too).
Spend your time wisely.
Value yourself, your passions, the people and places and memories that you love so dearly. As I learned a few months ago after the tragic loss of my
older brother and idol, your life can be over in an instant. Now I have even more reason to challenge myself, pursue my dreams, inspire others, be a
good person, and discover new
passions and dreams that I must also pursue.
We all have dark times and "bad" days and low points in our lives, but what's important is that you cherish the essence of life, your love and the
light you can share, and (presumably) one and only life you have to live. I'm not going to wait to find out, I'm treating every day as if it's "MY
day to accomplish whatever I can".
I even have an alarm on my phone about "What if there is
no afterlife? Be the best FamCore that you can, TODAY. Do good in the world, try your
best, and stay true to your principles."
And although I don't always read every single word in that alarm, because it's early in the morning and I'm delirious and have to get moving, I know
the words by heart and that's exactly how I try to live my life for that day.
So many things in life are discouraging and disheartening. Sometimes you've just got to dead that friendship or sacrifice your comfortability and
happiness to call someone out or stand up for yourself, but it's better than being your own greatest oppressor. I know my worth, I know what I'm
capable of, and I know that I show people a lot of love, encouragement, and support in life. If the way I do it isn't good enough or to their liking,
they might be having a bad day, or they might just be acting like a selfish a**hole. Either way, I've learned in my almost 3 decades of unfathomable
situations and heartbreaking incidents that I have more than 1 choice, and I believe in my purpose while I'm here. I will live according to that
purpose and my principles, and try to lift up anyone I can along the way. If people want to share the experience, they are welcome to. If they have
their own issues or choose another path I respect that as well.
I guess something important I've learned is that you need to stay true to yourself, and always keep moving forward no matter what.
As Martin Luther King Jr. Said,
“If you can't fly then run, if you can't run then walk, if you can't walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.”
