I am not long for this world

I am not long for this world

So I choose to live and leave it

Full of peace, hope, joy and grace

“I am not long for this world” – Its not a pessimistic statement, just a factual statement. How long do any of us have? We simply just don’t know. If you spend all your time dwelling on the past. Past issues, past failures, past trails, past successes, you never are fully present. if I am not fully present NOW then I have come to realize that I missing the greatest opportunity I have available to me…namely today.

What was done to me has never defined me, it has refined me. I will not leave this world filled with memories of pain, but of peace, not filled with old years of sadness but new years of joy.

I don’t have tomorrow, but I do have today – Dr John A. King

    That is beautiful. It’s hard to get past that label of “victim.” But, once you do, and you realize that you are so much more than what was done to you and the pain of it all, the whole world is open to you. That’s a good feeling.
