Love Today

“Can't spend my whole life wasting'

Everything I know I've been given

'Cause you've made for so much more than

Sittin' on the side lines

-Mandisa "Waiting for Tomorrow"

That song is #1 on my running mix right now.  It reminds me to make the most out of the day I’ve been given.  Even if life is not exactly the way you want it to be, you gotta make the most out what you have. 

This weekend I had an empty calendar day.  I’ve got two more weeks before my 3 sunshines come back from their summer break with their Dad, so whenever I get one of those “free days”, I do something that I couldn’t possibly do with 3 little kids in tow. So, a girlfriend and went Stand Up Paddleboarding. Loved it!

During the course of the day though, we were unloading on each other.  We talked about our worries about our future as single women, our complaints about life, and helping each other through.  Until it hit us; why are we spending this time complaining and whining?

Worrying so much about what's next, our future. When we had a beautiful free day that God had given us to enjoy.  

I realized I had to stop whining about waiting for tomorrow.  Just love the life you live today.

Reminds me of these lines from her Good Morning song:
Slow down, breathe in
Don't move ahead
I'm just living in this moment

I heard what you share on the radio about being unappreciated.  Very true,  I've been an RN x. 32 years even you work hard do the right thing follow every protocols at times I felt unappreciated at times but I've had patients show appreciations in a heartfelt way.  They lift your spirits even though your boss,co -workers don't. I know that I 'm doing it FOR GOD'S GLORY!! Not for men. I'm finishin school to be a nurse practitioner & can't wait what,how God will use me. Ineed prayer in my studies, family& finding work part time.Thanks Amanda for uplifting words! God bless! Psalm 37:4 for you!
