One faithful day, I was standing in a hallway awaiting someone’s arrival. Now mind you, I wasn’t the only one waiting—and I wasn’t the only one standing. It was a rather crowded hallway.
Within few seconds of waiting, there comes the dancing guy. He was literally dancing his way through the crowded hallway while the bystanders made way for him. With his music loud enough, he smiled from ear to ear while dancing as though he’s the recipient for the mega million lottery.
When he made his way through us, we all smiled and murmured “it must be his birthday or something!” Because we couldn’t fathom how someone could be so happy and in such a jubilant mood at 7:50am. The day barely started, so what else besides his birthday could make him this excited?
After reaching his destination and accomplishing his task, the dancing guy returned back our way–this time even more excited than we last saw him. His moves were larger and his grin bigger. To our surprise, He stopped in the middle, perhaps he had read the perplexed look on our faces and said: “live your life because if you don’t eventually you’ll die!”
That was the message for the day: LIVE YOUR LIFE! It wasn’t his birthday, he didn’t win any lottery–he was just simply glad and happy to witness yet another day. And dancing at 7:50am was his way of living life. He was unapologetically happy—one that was contagious.
Look unto the things that you do have and be less worried about that which you don’t have. Rejoice for what you do have while still working towards that which you don’t have. Don’t let the lack thereof to determine your demeanor and outlook for each day.
Dance. Sing. Rejoice. Be happy! Because all you have is now, and once it’s gone you’ll never get it back! Dance your way through the day—whatever it takes to keep you going.
Love & light.
