So many times we get so caught up in life and the drama around us that we fail to see the blessings of one another. This past Fourth of July I came across a fatal motorcycle accident on the freeway. This accident really got me thinking about everyone in my life that I tend to not remind that I love them. Life can be taken in an instance and the regrets that some are left with are sometimes unbearable. I know that family and friends don’t always get along.
That we go through seasons where we don’t talk for a long time or we have a bit of bad blood between us. People on average are stubborn and want to be right so they choose to let relationships fall to the wayside rather than proactively encourage and nurture them. I just want to encourage everyone reading this to make it a priority to tell all of those around you that you love them as often as possible. Never go to bed angry at someone over something that really does not matter. Life is a beautiful thing, but when struck with tragedy it can be a hardship.
In order to not have regrets you have to risk your ego and be the one that shows by example. It is NEVER too late to do that. It is never too late to restore relationships of any kind. It just takes a forgiving heart and kind words to build it back up. Making amends may seem hard at first, but trust me when you go out of your way to try to do the right thing, you will be blessed, but most importantly you won’t have to live with the fact that someone you loved may pass and you did not do anything to fix what was broken. God has a beautiful way of opening doors to healing and forgiveness when our hearts are in the right place.
