“This life is the only one I’m given. I will live it well. I will do all I can to make the most of each day, each minute, and each moment. I will do the things I’ve always dreamed of doing and be the things I’ve always wished to be. Instead of sitting and waiting for the good things to come, I will stand up and create them.”
Most of us would agree that life has its ups and downs. Wise King Solomon believed this and reflected on our responses to fluctuating circumstances. In Ecclesiastes, he wrote: “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven… a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance” [3:1-4].
It’s hard for us to accept the fact that our priorities are not the same as God is. We attach too much importance to things like wealth and success. To Him challenges that often seem most important to us at the time are really not very significant. But God trusts us to make the best use we have and to make our lives meaningful and beneficial to others no matter where we are. Whatever season you are in right now or at the moment of your life each season should motivate us to seek the LORD and trust Him for He will help us to turn to Him not only in sadness but also in joy. And if we draw nigh to Him… He will also draw nigh to us and helped us through the good times and the bad because God loved us.
Every season needs faith to get us through it. No matter how sad you may feel at times, be confident that hope will awaken with you. Faith reach out to you; take hold of them, and you will find that you will be able to smile again and truly be happy once more. How we deal with life is really a matter of personal choice, so choose to be happy. Above all, trust in God’s handcrafted plan that He has made just for you. Let Him love you through life’s joyous and painful aspects; if you do you will find inner peace and joy. As the passage of Scripture in Matthew 11:28 writes, “Come to ME, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
According to Webster’s New World Dictionary. The defintion of Perfection means 1. the act or process of perfecting 2. the quality or condition of being perfect; extreme degree of excellence according to a given standard 3. a person or thing that is the perfect embodiment of some quality — to perfection completely; perfectly.
Perfection is just an idea, a theory. It represents flawlessness and completion. It is simply a perception. One person’s concept of what is perfect can be vastly different from what another person perceives to be perfect. Our eyes, may see the details, but it is our hearts and minds that ultimately decide what perfection means.
If you ask a happy person, why they are always happy, their answer may surprise you. More often than not, the gist of their glee stems not from anything measurable or material, but from a simple appreciation of life itself. You can spend your energy struggling over all the things that aren’t right in your life, or you can infuse your energy by understanding that you may not have everything you want, just the way you want it, but you probably have more than what you need.
Perhaps life feels so much less than perfect that we find it hard to bear. But even in the darkest hours blessings are abound… there is perfection in everyone’s life. Life is beautiful in its fragility, transcience and importance. So, let’s live life to the fullest. Laugh, love and be grateful. Life is wonderful… Let’s enjoy its wonders and perfection. If you understand what really matters — you will find its life’s beauty and perfection.
Your life is perfect. It is only when we take the time to look over our lives that we can truly see how some things came to be by perfection — reflection. Through reflection, most of us will find that we have a lot to be thankful for, and begin to understand how perfect our life really is. And we can try looking in these places…
*You. You should always be number 1 on your list, the mere fact that you have lived well this long is a testament to your own personal perfection. You are already whole, already complete. You are not going to get it all, you are it all already. Give this some serious personal consideration. If you are not enjoying your life right now, with what you have accumulated, with your current state of health, and in your present job and relationships, you will not appreciate and enjoy new or different life conditions. Our ability to enjoy life comes from how we choose to process life, rather than from externals. Nothing outside of ourselves has the power to bestow happiness or fulfillment on us. What determines the quality of our life is our choice to be fulfilled or not, based upon how we think, how we view ourselves and our place in the universe. Consequently, if you are a person who needs more in order to feel complete, then you will still feel incomplete when you have acquired more.
You may have that feeling of being not perfect but you are perfectly you. You have a great gift and that gift is yourself. Feel really good about who you are and all the things you do and the things you have. Appreciate your uniqueness. Realize what a beautiful soul you have. Understand the wonder within.
*Your Health. Give thanks for everything that you are and everything that you have. That’s right — give thanks, but not in some meaningless charade. Truly appreciate the miracle that you are. The fact that you are alive. That you have eyes, ears, feet, and that you are here right now in this marvelous dream. Make an effort to begin focusing on what you have, rather than on what you are missing. When you begin to focus on being thankful for all that you have — the water you drink, the sun that warms you, the air you breathe; and everything that is a gift from God — you will be using your thoughts/your entire essence to dwell on abundance of this perfect univesrse and your humanity.
However you may not be in perfect conditon by scientific standards, but if you are getting through the days, you are doing something right — and creating the opportunity for improvement. Whatever you do with it in a positive way will help it to expand. You will expnd what you focus on. If you focus on how great you feel, you will expand wellness. How perfect is that?
*Your Friends and Family. If you are a type of person who prefer with just a small circle then keep it that way… You don’t need a large number or plenty of people in your life to look your environment more merrier, what matter is the strength of your bond with the people close to you . After all, it’s not about quantity — it’s about the importance of quality.
A few trusted – good friends and family are most important. During your most difficult moments and exciting triumphs, they stand beside you. Keep them with you always. They will make life’s journey much more rich and rewarding, not to mention fun. Also, the most memorable times are those spent with loved ones and good friends. The warmest moments in life are those where you feel valued and can celebrate in the joy of sharing a connection with someone else. Nothing can compare to that. It is what enhances each one of our journey.
*Your Life. Marvel at how a world of such chaos can keep evolving. The flow of the changing seasons, the warmth of the sun, the chill of the wind. Human and nature always seem to be at odds, and yet somehow we continues to evolve and survive. While the coexistence may not be everyone’s ideal, it doesn’t make it any less perfect.
But then, it is the way you look at your life that makes the difference. Your life is a matter of perception; you can search for sunshine behind clouds or look for rain hiding in blue skies. And you can create a life of joy. Feel love from the people around you. Feel the sun on your face and the wind through your hair. Live for each moment, and enjoy every gift life has to offer.
Is life perfect? Your life is perfect? Our perfectly imperfect life is perfect… As Vladimir Horowitz once said: “Perfection itself is in imperfection.”
