This isn’t an article on religion. Stay with me! Today is a short pep talk and return of Unlifer. Sorry about the break!
Everyone has some sort of God.
You do. I do. Your Mother does.
Be it an idol, money, or even your spouse, all of us consume our life and energy with something. Your God can be defined by what you spend most of your time thinking about. It could even be food. How many of us are obsessed with fried foods and soda? Seriously think about this. What do you spend your time thinking about? You think about something. You have to, or you wouldn’t be reading about this.
But what happens when that one thing is torn away from you?
Sometimes… things just happen. The world around you seems to crumble. Someone dies, something tragic happens, or you just can’t seem to get up and do something. Maybe it’s depression. Maybe you’re just going through a rough time. A storm could tear away your home. You could get fired from your job. Your spouse could die. Well, you get the point.
Whatever you do, you can’t let this loss ruin you because there is still hope.
Whatever that is, whatever you’re going through, it’s not worth your life. You may need to grieve or work through your issues for a while, but you can’t give yourself to it. You can’t let it consume you.
You’re worth more.
Your time, your life, and your energy are worth more than left being consumed by what is keeping you down. You can make a difference still. You will live on.
This too shall pass.
…but more importantly, what are you making your ultimate in your life? And is it really worth it?
