Don’t give up…
You can’t give up.
You can’t give up on LOVE because
others are hateful. You can’t give up on
believing in one another because
you’ve been let down. You can’t give up
on hope because pain came your way.
You can’t give up on kindness because
some people are cruel. You can’t give up
on peace because war surrounds you.
You can’t give up on dreams because
they don’t always come true. Life isn’t
about everything being in order. Life
isn’t about bliss. Life is about
learning to live, love, hope, and
believe in the midst of perfect
imperfection. Life is messy,
complicated, confusing and beautiful
all at the same time. Life is the single
best gift you have ever been given.
You can’t give up.
~Sheri S Bessi
It’s pretty easy to get caught up in the day dream of having a “perfect life.”
Always hoping for MORE.
More love, more peace.
Always wanting more money, and more friends.
A bigger house and a different car to drive.
Deeper feeling relationships. The kind they show on television all the time.
Those perfect sit com type of life styles.
Those never ending get away’s to tropical islands, and buying brand new cars.
Those romantic romance novels that every one reads because they don’t like their own life all that much.
Let’s admit – that isn’t real life.
Real life can contain a little bit of all of those things, but there are also a lot of not so glamorous things mixed in also.
Things like pulling weeds to keep your garden tidy.
Doing the dishes and sweeping the floor to keep your house clean.
Making the bed every day.
These are not as glamorous at all.
But they are a part of what makes life worth living.
They are parts of life that we can all be grateful for.
Imagine not having a house with a floor to sweep.
Not even having a bed to make.
That really changes they way you look at things,
and maybe reminds us to be grateful for what we have instead of
spending our lives wishing for someone else’s life.
Making peace with what we have as we look for even more.
Making the best of the life we have right now, as we live it.
Enjoying our life right now with all of the complicated imperfections of the moment.
