Adoption—Time Waits for no One…

“Hours are like diamonds, never waste them. Make every day a joy filled with anticipation. Radiate some personality flair that fulfills your purpose and provide what the world lacks. Be alert. Show support for your inner self. Drink in the sunshine before the day passes away because you will never experience this moment again.” Judith Land

“Statues immortalize the flavor and essence of people we care deeply about and want to be remembered by future generations for their personality, innate characteristics, and quality and substance of thoughts and actions; people who create an unwavering guide that help us discover moral truth, and understand the difference between and right and wrong.” Judith Land

Don’t be afraid of growing old, be afraid of standing still. Never procrastinate or delay because time won’t wait for anyone. Human events and concerns cannot stop the passage of time or the ebb and flow of the tides. Some things are inevitable, such as birth, death, the sun rising and the passage of time, so chose a path and get on with accomplishing whatever you’re supposed to do because the river continues to flow on past, regardless of what we do.

Sometimes we forget why we are here on earth. We forget that there is a reason for all the pain and struggles. If you are determined to do something, find a way to accomplish it, regardless of the number of obstacles in your path. If there is a chance in a million that you can do something, to keep what you want from ending, do it. Build your own rising tide of enthusiasm. Learn to do the right thing based on moral truths, traditionally held beliefs, right conduct, and knowledge derived from common sense and experience. A common person is not concerned with the calendar or the passing of time, but the individual on a mission is driven by it.

We build monuments of stone to someone’s passing, for fame everlasting. Nobody wants to be remembered for all the tidy little things they didn’t do, rather than the things they did do. If someone is curiously absent from your life, make a plan to reconnect with the missing soul before it’s too late, to make both of your lives complete.

  1. It saddens me when I see family members refusing to communicate with each other. Life is too short and time is so precious. As an adoptee, I treasure all my relatives–adoptive family and bio family! Thanks for the great post!

    You are wise. The more we interact with others the more enjoyable our lives become.
