There are 5 things things in life that we know are important, but do not treat with much importance. You see, simply knowing is useless until what we know is applied and manifested in our behavior or actions.
Let me give you 2 simple facts:
1. OUR TIME ON EARTH IS LIMITED. The average life expectancy of a person is 78.8 years according to CDC (Center for Disease Control and Prevention)
2. WHAT YOU PLANT IN YOUR EARLY YEARS, YOU WILL REAP IN YOUR LATER YEARS.
Some people would see our life as a book, and we’re the authors.
For this time, I want us to picture our life as a garden and we’re the gardeners planting the seeds that we will reap later in our life.
For today, let’s talk about the first seed that we need to plant and I hope that you will ponder on it like I do. 🙂
“For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you” -Jeremiah 29:11
I want to believe that God did not put us here on earth merely to exist. We have a purpose. And this purpose in embedded to us when we were born. Aren’t you wondering sometimes why people should have different personalities, interests & skills? Unlike other living creatures, we are the only ones who have unique preferences and potentials. Could they be clues to God’s plan for us? Could they be the hints to our purpose?
What is your Dream?
What skills are you good at that you also love doing?
How will you profit and how can you serve others with that dream?
I know I love to write.
And I also think that I have a skill in writing (please let me know otherwise so I’d immediately kill my delusion of becoming a writer right away!)
How will I profit from it? On the financial aspect, I do not know yet- but I know that it makes me happy, it nourishes my soul, it uplifts my spirit, and it also helps with my mental health.
When I started this blog, I planted my dream seed.
I also have a more personal dream. I dream of a happy family.
I want to stay in-love with my husband.
I want to have a closer connection with my daughter.
I want to have a close relationship with our family (our parents & siblings).
And so I plant seeds for this dream. From a simple ritual to making sure to kiss & hug to spending quality time- one on one and as a family. We’re not a perfect family (believe me when I say we do have our fare share of disagreements and fights) but we do our best to do daily acts of love and have fun together.
I read from a book that “If you want to keep your family home, make it a happy home.”
What are your dreams and heart’s desires? What do you do or have done to make it your reality?
