It was recently pointed out to me that it has been a while since my last post. Now that Summer 1 is complete and more importantly Sport Finance is finished, I find myself with some free time to jot down some thoughts.
I am currently sitting at my computer in the Bahamas waiting for my family to get back from the store so we can eat and hit the casino (I know I’m blessed). Meanwhile a few things were on my mind on the flight over here and I thought I might as well share.
The flight over to Nassau was fairly rough and gave everyone on board quite a scare, including myself. It was during this time that I realized how alive I felt! I thought about how unfortunate it is that it takes the fear of losing your life to truly appreciate life. My day, which had been very dull to this point, consisted of a bunch of half-hearted conversations and a nagging headache after a uncomfortably early wake-up to catch our flight. As the plane bounced around in the air, I began to deeply regret how I had lived what in my mind could possibly be my last day.
Why hadn’t I seized every moment of it?
Why hadn’t I relished the conversations with my family and loved ones?
These questions raced through my troubled mind as my emotions went from dull to determined.I was determined to never take life for granted. I was determined to show my friends and family how much I loved them. I was determined to prove to God that I was worth a second chance at this thing. I promised myself then and there that if this flight landed safely I would never be the same again. I would no longer settle for mediocre.
So now that I’m sitting here safely I have to live up to that promise and I have the upmost confidence that I will. Each day is a new opportunity to change your life and the life of those around you. Stop settling for average. Go out and seize the day.
Soli Deo Gloria
