As you whiz past time, remember to stop and smell the roses. Life is a journey and there is no destination. You may have set goals. But those are temporary in nature. Once you reach them you have another set, which you set out to achieve. And life goes on like that, from one possible destination to another. Some of you may be living without goals. That’s also fine, as long as you are happy. Enjoy the journey. Many a times you will come across situations which are difficult. Do not avoid them. Face them with full courage. God will give you enough strength to do so. Remember the saying in the Bible ‘And it came to pass.’ There is no situation put in front of you, by destiny, which you cannot tackle. You have been given enough strength and perseverance to face them. So like I said, however heart-breaking it might be, you have got to live this life and face your worst fear. Rest if you must, but don’t you quit.

Another thing about life – It’s a short one. So be graceful; treat people with respect and spread joy to others. Be their Santa Claus. Do not let undermining emotions get in your way. Even if they do, shake them off as fast as possible. Always be in an optimistic positive mood, despite anything. Cheer up, treat yourself to a cookie or a drink whenever you feel that you have done something right. Do not waste life in petty emotions. Stand up and claim your life. That’s the only one you have got. Remember you attract what you are, and not what you want. So raise your vibrations.

Even if you miss an opportunity, do not worry. God keeps sending them often. But don’t miss them all. Latch on to a couple of them. Steer your ship by your inner compass. Let no one else do that for you. Remember it’s your life after all. Even if you make a mistake, you will be happy because you and only you, are responsible for it. Do not put off things, because if it has snowed today, chances are it may, tomorrow also. So do not wait for the sun to shine or an auspicious time. There is no such thing.

The greatest life is that which takes us towards God. Although, subconsciously we are connected, we have to witness His/Her marvels in the light of our conscious being. That life which takes us towards God, step by step, is a life worth living. God always will love you, no matter what. So be confident of that, however bad you screw up. And in the end, treat failure as a lesson. You have to take it that way. Learn the lesson and then toss away the past. Begin a new future. Live life in the present. Fully. Don’t forget to smile – because you are special.
