Looking For Anything Specific?


Have you ever found yourself wishing you were in a stage higher and far better than where you are at the moment? Wishing the future you imagine is now? The answer is yes I guess. We all do this, wishing we were in another place, achieved this or that, be married if single, wishing we were doing a job other than the one we are doing at the moment and so on. We always want to wish away the present moment and live in our fantasies in which we see and wish we were happier, more successful, things get better, easier and less stressful.

We most times defer our happiness for today in view of the happiness for tomorrow. We want to wait for a certain time in our lives before we can be happy in the fullest form of it forgetting life can still be fun at every stage of our lives despite the challenges that accompany each stage. For instance, we want to wait till it's Christmas before we eat a special meal, the single lady wants to wait till a guy takes her out before she gives herself a treat.
We must try to find relaxation and joy in every moment we find ourselves and not just on special days or occasions. Find happiness in the now. If you can't find happiness now, you can't find it where you want to be. Don't halt your life now for the fantasies you have.

Our lives are in stages and in chapters written by God.  He is the author of the book called life and in each chapter, He has planned and written what will take place in our lives. Every chapter of our lives come with processes to pass through before we get to the next stage of life.
If you haven't achieved a thing yet, its because its not time yet. You ain't married yet because you haven't gotten to that chapter of your life. You are in your present job because that's the life for you at the moment.
"Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day" Psalm 139:16

Always know that what ever you are going through, what ever you are and the things you see at this stage of your life are all temporary. Even the people in your life and the place you are at the moment is temporary. When you understand this, you will appreciate every moment of your life because when you look back as you move higher and forward in life, you will appreciate every moment in the past. When you finally achieve your dreams and ambitions, you will appreciate and see the importance of the rough and tough roads that led to the victories.

Stay within the chapter of  life you are in now. If you try to jump any script, you miss out a whole lot. It's just like reading a story book or a novel. When you get impatient and jump to the end to see what happened at the end, you get to miss out what led to the happenings at the end. So is life when you try to fast forward the stage you are in for a better stage, you get to miss the experiences that will help mold and shape your life for a better tomorrow.

There is nothing wrong in wanting a better life and wanting to live that life. It only becomes wrong when you run out of patience waiting to get to that stage. Learn to be patient and follow the process of life. These processes in most cases come in form of challenges that help to refine you and make you a better person in life Always know that there is a reason and a purpose for every stage you get into.

If you have a dream you want to achieve in life, then have a work plan towards achieving your dreams by writing down your goals and the modalities towards achieving your set goals. Work towards achieving your set goals with the modalities put in place
"And the Lord answered me and said, write the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it". Habakkuk 2:2.

The life you want to live and dream of is achievable. Its a process that is achieved over time in transition. Planning the next phase of your life with set goals keeps you focus.
Running from the present into the future makes you to always want and not having, putting your present life on hold for the imaginary life that you might never have. We forget about the people and their importance in our lives as well as the precious moments that take place in our lives.

One reason why we tend to drift from the now into the kind of life we want is lack of contentment. In order to be contented in life, we need to find joy and happiness at every stage of our lives with what we have and who we are.
Always remind yourself that right now is the best moment of your life even if you are passing through a rough time because there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. The rough times bring out the best in you and paves the way for a better tomorrow.

Appreciate the struggles and the people who in one way or the other contributed in your life. Some people must have made the road tough and rough while others made it smooth, still appreciate both parties.
