I have been reflecting on all of the important people in my life and those that I have been able to watch and learn from. I am grateful that they have taught me so many things, often, without saying a thing. For example, my grandmother who has had severe back trouble for some time now. She still gets up and moves around… maybe not as fast as others, but she is yet mobile. I remember sitting and talking with her and she said something very powerful... "It hurts when I move and it hurts when I stay still, so if its gonna hurt, I may as well go on and do what I gotta do."
She must have said that to me about five years ago and it has stuck with me. Sometimes we allow pain, inconvenience, hurt (emotionally and physically) cause us to stop our lives from moving forward. What I mean is that we are still here and existing, but we are not living. We must live our lives to the fullest, regardless to the ailments that we deal with. If we focus on the living and not the pain to live, we will find that the purpose that we have found in living will alleviate the pain of being alive.
So what the Life Empowered Moment for today? Live Life!!!
