Your heart is still beating


Do you ever have that morning where you are facing a daunting day and you find it difficult to roll over and get out of bed? You know that you have to, but that work or personal situation is weighing on you so heavily that it almost makes it impossible to lift your head off the pillow. Yet, somehow you muster the strength to pull yourself together and set off to deal with whatever the day is going to bring. How and why? Because in all things there is a purpose.

Every gift of another life minute is ours for a reason. Although we don’t always know exactly what it is at the time, there is a purpose for us getting that next minute and therefore we have the responsibility to make the most of what it has to offer. Not all things that we endure are going to be easy. But when you think about it, it is those difficult times that we deal with that give us the life lessons that we need to move on to the next chapter. Heaven knows that they are not always pleasant and often downright awful. Yet, we endure them and carry on because we know that we are alive for a reason.

It is the point when we give up that renders it all meaningless. It is the perseverance to get through the ordeal that builds the strength that we need to carry on. In doing so, we gain knowledge through life’s lessons that help make us stronger, while enriching the life that we have been given. When we have purpose and commitment, our soul is nourished and we have the resolve to make our life even better than it was intended.

One of my favorite things at work and in my personal life is to take “no” and find a way to make it “yes”. During that search for life’s purpose I tried to never let walls block my way without finding a way around them. I strived to never let people be the reason that I didn’t succeed simply because they told me I couldn’t. I knew in my heart that I was alive for a reason and it was because of that reason that I chose to never give up. When I go to sleep at night I often place my hand near my heart as a reminder that there is much to do as long as those beats keep going on.

Have a great day and remember to be the reason someone smiles today.
