You Don't Have To Die
So today I want to talk to you guys about something that has really been weighing heavy on my heart and my mind for a couple of weeks now. I was pacing around in my house a few days just stuck on a couple of thoughts. One of them is this: There is somebody in my house that is going to be the last one standing, and while I pray it is not me, I know that eventually life is going to get to us. I know that there will come times where I have to live without somebody that I care about. Not just in my house, but in general. Obviously, last year, my mother and my grandmother passed away, but I want you to think about that for a second. Because when you really start to understand that and feel that in your heart and in your soul, you start to understand what truly matters. I know I have talked about this in different blogs, podcasts, and lives before but you have got to understand what truly matters in life, and a lot of people just do not seem to be clear on that.
If you are trying to live your life to impress people, if you are trying to live your life to get people to accept you then you are not pursuing what truly matters. Now do not get me wrong here. I mean I am the first person to tell you that you should make the world accept your greatness, but there is a difference between daring to be great and respectable and hanging every moment you have living and dying based on what other people think about you. As you go on your journey towards success I just do not want you to lose focus on what and who truly matters in your life. The people in your life that love you and care about you are what truly matters and for you to live to the fullest with them you have to accept and understand that they will not always be there. Eventually one of you will be gone, because forever has an expiration date. A lot of us are out there living like what we have right now will last forever and we have no sense of the value of just how precious the things that matter in this life really are.
It is not the followers that matter. It is not the money in your bank account that matters. I remind you of that right now because when you go through your hardest moments I guarantee that the house will not be able to heal you. When you go through your times of suffering or your times of depression, the money in your bank account will not be able to heal you and neither will the followers you have on social media. Maybe it might bandaid it. Maybe it could offer temporary relief, but the only thing that will really keep you afloat is focusing on what really matters in this life. Don’t ever lose that focus.
It all starts with you.
