A Leap Forward

Posted Tuesday, September 6, 2011 by deehan1914

Yes, like many others. I am guilty of over using my body.

I sleep too late and I am usually up at around 5 am. I am still awake when my friends are in deep slumber and I am then awake even before they finish their wonderful trip to dreamland.

I have this crazy notion that if I will ever remain stagnant for a day. I will be a day far from my dreams.

Obviously, when my students are absent, I take time to write my wrangling thoughts (just like now)..I know I will not live forever and I know how I can make my thoughts eternal beyond my vulnerable frame.

Today, I was able to talk to a trainee in our company. I was deeply impressed.

I love the fact that she found time to give special children free lessons . I admire people doing this not   because they are just after of the certificates that could be of great help if they will soon seek employment but because they are genuinely thinking that these kids are "special". I love the way her eyes sparkled when she talked about how pretty her student is.

The conversation made me think about my own life.

Who am I now? Is my onward march plan still up? am I able to show much love to the people around me?

Today, I decided to have a leap forward.

I know that my sole reason of existence is to praise and glorify God.  I should not fall prey to those evil beasts. I decided to show more love.I sent messages to my college buddies who do remember to send me text messages almost everyday. I am guilty of not responding to their previous messages. I called home and bought Mom a gift for her birthday.I must show my love to my family, friends and church mates even more.

I should be more active in the church.I must love God above everything.

I am working hard to balance my schedule for my family, work, education, friends and social life.
I think the real leap forward is to realize that church things must be at top of all my 'things to do'.
