Awake for Life

You’re alive so you have been given the gift of life, but it’s up to you to be awake for it so when you reach your final destination (the end of life) you can say, what a ride…

Everyone who is alive is on a so called journey. No one remains in a state of stagnation. Life is always moving forward whether we are aware of it or not. It’s like when you take a trip that requires a plane to get to your destination, after the plane takes off it’s as though it’s not even noticed that you are moving. This is how life is and before it’s realized the journey is complete and you are at your destination. During the journey if all you did was sleep you missed the entire trip and you cannot go back and recapture it because you have reached your destination.

When you have reached your so called destination and your journey is complete, it’s only because you’re asleep that you missed what occurred on your trip. You can either be awake for your journey or you can be asleep, but it will go on either way and once your destination is reached the trip is over. The key is to not be asleep for the trip and only be awakened when you have reached your destination because by then your trip (life) will be over. The greatest misgiving of life is when it’s realized you have been asleep for most of it. This is how far to many lives finish up. There will come a time when it’s realized the journey is now complete and that you were asleep for most of it; there is nothing that can be done to go back and redo what has been missed. Don’t let this be your journey with this end result. You’re alive so you were given the gift of life, but it’s up to you to be awake for the journey so when you reach your final destination (the end of life) you can say, what a ride…
