Invitation To Live

Enjoy the day.

Invitation To Live
Emily Tilano via Odyssey

Do you wake up in the mornings ready to live or just get by in life?

In his inspirational book "Love Does," Bob Goff says, "I get the invitation every morning when I wake up to actually live a life of complete engagement, a life of whimsy, a life where love does."

Let's be honest, do we accept this invitation every morning? I know I personally declined this invitation every day for a year. My days were lonely, and I was unhappy. I was not fully living my life. However, one morning I woke up and decided it was time to turn my life around.

Instead of looking for the negatives in life, I started looking for the positives. Let me tell you, there are a lot more positive things happening around you than you think. I started to not take life so seriously and just enjoy every moment. I let myself feel what life was meant to feel like.

It's easy to decline the invitation to live your life fully, but accepting the invitation can change you forever. Even if you aren't a morning person, I encourage you to wake up and see all the great things waiting for you. God wants your life to be filled with happiness, success, and peace. YOU just have to willing to accept the invitation to actually live.

Ecclesiastes 3:12 - "So I concluded there is nothing better than to be happy and enjoy ourselves as long as we can."

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
