“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.
