We have come to the end of the second month of 2022. So much occurred and continues to; it is almost impossible to comprehend some of it, but there is comfort in knowing nothing stays the same, and the only constant is life and death. Each day, there is a new birth, while life takes an exit. These two opposites, life and death, are reminders that we should put everything into prospectives and be good to ourselves and others because the pendulum of life is ever moving, and ‘Time’ the master gives us little control-if any? Therefore, our life should provide us with a sense of a heightened purpose at this juncture of who we are and hope to become.
This past Friday, I started my day with such enthusiasm, but by the end of the day, I was reminded of how fragile and codependent I am; life has a way of reminding us. So I spent Saturday in solitude to reflect and become more intentional and meaningful with how I use my time. Of course, our experiences differ, but our lives pivot on similar stimuli with commonalities that mirror each other in so many ways.
Most people have the best of intentions, but sometimes it becomes so easy to get sucked into the daily grind of life. We can easily lose sight of the bigger picture within the vacuum of circumstances bombarding us. It is good to pause introspectively and ask ourselves, “What is the essence of life,” our lives? This phase of desiring to know and wanting to engage life on a level that advances with a purpose initiates discovery-with true meaning and a clear purpose despite those obstacles.
On February 1st, 2022, the world we knew isn’t the same world we are seeing this 27th day of February 2022. So, in reality, it is incumbent upon us to aim to make our efforts go beyond the ordinary. And each of us has something to offer another, and it might be simply a word of upliftment which is like oxygen for someone who is about to throw in the towel on life. At all levels of this journey, “Life” is something that all should have the meaning of. So, as you indulge me in the state of contemplation, your input is a gift, and you are the difference that adds worth and meaning to this complex, yet magical experience, life! Share your life objectively, knowing you are what makes life worthwhile. Marjorie Delores
