Celebrating Life: Every Minute Matters

Today I celebrate Life once again under the theme every minute counts.

Indeed it does! I have not been here in an official capacity for some time but I am happy I was able to check this blog and my stats throughout! Thankfully we got through the challenges we were faced with knowing that God has been with us and continues to be with us. My family and friends have made my fight easier and as I always say I am a fighter (not one down for physical blows but I do not give up) and survivor (yes, I do not give up).

Each moment is an experience, and an opportunity for learning. More so, it is an opportunity to be thankful for.

We never know when is our last or when life is going to change or we hardly know when things might go wrong or not as we planned or somethings might knock us off our feet! Each moment is precious- a new birth, a new dawn, a new beginning, a fresh start. How? When you find the positive in every negative!

You know that feeling when you feel you have hit rock bottom, remember this- there is only one way to go and that’s UP! That’s something I remember Dad and I talking about years ago and it remains with me! True enough it’s one of the many things Dad has taught me and that has remained with me. It’s something you should think about too and I hope you can see how true it is!

You know sometimes when you feel no one is listening and no one knows- remember this, God is always looking over us and giving up is not an option- keep YOUR faith in HIM.

You know sometimes when you think the world is being unfair, remember this: LIFE is a cycle- what goes around comes around- You are one of GOD’s children, just as I am. He takes care of us and does not let His children suffer. Why would He when He is our Loving and merciful Father? He won’t and all you need to do is to believe this!!!

As my husband asked, “Rachael, when have you let anyone stop you from achieving what you want? You never, so why now?” He was right! I never do so why now? Sure enough I haven’t stopped and I am on the move!

Enjoy this video! It may be exactly the pick you up which you need:

Sometimes you feel so tired you feel like giving up and you feel there is no more fight! Something you can relate too right? Allow me to share something my Mom said to me some weeks ago, “If you start, there will be an end, but if you don’t start there will be no end and this is something you have to do so don’t put it off!”

This is something you should also keep in mind! Sometimes you need to take it easy, sometimes you need to breathe, sometimes you need to feel. Don’t deny yourself any of that and do not forget what it isĀ  to focus on YOU sometimes and making a little YOU time! Sounds good doesn’t it? Celebrate Life- Every Minute Counts!!!
