Mt 5:10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the Kingdom of heaven.
You know, sometimes, you just need toss refinement into the refuse pile.
Let's face it. Life on the third rock from the sun is one brief blessing in the big scheme of, well, it all.
And I, for one, don't want to be the gal who saved the nice hand towels (tags and all) so long that they wind up getting donated to Goodwill by my great-granddaughter in 2051, Capisce?
No ill will to the fabulous folks and mission of Goodwill, BT Dubs. I love #Goodwill, yo.
But you get the point. Every day should be a celebration; at least a small one. In fact, it's time to STOP.
*Stop storing up vacation days that are going to roll over into the abyss and never be used.
*Stop denying yourself bread. Real, honest-to-goodness white bread with its carbs and gluten and calories. [I'm speaking directly to me on this one, FYI.]
*Stop waiting to zip off for that long weekend or that even-longer European adventure.
*STOP, STOP, STOP putting off spending quality time with your children ... your Grandparents ... your folks ... or your BFF. You will come to regret it at some point. #ImSorryGram&Nonna
Order the big Belgian waffle with extra whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles. Get a side of bacon with that bugger. A large milkshake with a cherry on top, too. And make a happy plate, you dig?
Oh, and give a little. Helping the other humans makes for sunny, happy times, especially when you're sad yourself. Focusing outwardly in some charitable way has HUGE secondary benefits for the soul, ya know what I'm sayin'?
Within reason, people, live life to the fullest at every opportunity. Not in a glutenous, unhealthy or selfish way, but in happy human existence fashion.
Every day; indulge, just a little, in the joy that is around you: your faith, your family, your friends, your favorite pasta, yo. We're all gone way too quickly to fit in any coulda shoulda woulda nonsense.
Grab life by the horns, look right into its face and scream, "We're having a great time today, ding dang it!" And then, do.
