Free-spirited

All my life I have never been able to really freely express myself.  The ability to really be free was a great challenge.  At home I really wasn’t allowed to express myself freely.   I barely had a voice.

freedomBut now when I look at my daughter and see how free-spirited she is, I wish I had been able to express myself so freely.  She is so free, that she would dress up just because she felt like it.  The full works of make-up, clothes, shoes, accent, everything.  She is creative, happy and full of life.  When I look at her, I see life itself.  I mean, no care in the world.  Not studying what others think of her.  Saying what she wants without being too rude.  Just simply expressing herself.  I don’t stop her or forbid her from expressing myself, because I know what it feels like to be prohibited.  I just enjoy her freedom.

If she feels like dancing in the streets, she will dance in the street.  If she feels like singing  whilst doing her school work, then sing she would.  If she felt like painting a picture, she would.  I mean she is just free.  So many of us are so uptight.  Always worrying about things and not being able to see the funny side of something.

Life is meant to be lived!  So live!  Be free to express yourself in anyway you wish.

The ‘Why?’ Of what you do.

Why do you do what you do? Do you do it to please someone?  Or do you do it because this is what you want to do?  This is something that you enjoy doing.  I have come to realize that most people usually do what they do to please someone.  Whether it’s their parents, their teacher, their boss, their spouse.  Whomever it is, it’s not about you, but the other person.  But it’s not always good to do such.  Firstly, we ought to please God first in all that we do.  Because He sees all and knows all.  So why try to please people?

You see, whilst people see what you do, God sees why you do.  So if people can only see skin deep and God can see the heart, then I believe that your intentions are worth more than your actions.  I know there is a saying ‘ action speaks louder than words’ but what good is your action if your intentions are bad?  It’s as good as deceit.

So the next time you think of pleasing someone, ask yourself, why.  Yes you want to respect and honor the person, but your why, would really determine if you would be blessed for it or not.  And for me, the why is more important.

 

 

 

Funeral

I went to my really good friends funeral today and I only realized what’s the real reason for having a funeral.  Although I have been to several funerals, this one today really opened my understanding.  Funerals aren’t for the dead!  Yes we share their life for all to see, to remember the fond moments we had with them and to lay them to rest, but a funeral is really for those who are alive.

The funeral is to bring closure to those who may have questions, to those who is in denial, to those who just want to see the person one last time.  If a funeral never takes place for someone who has gone before, then there really is no closure.  If we examine carefully, we would see that persons who may have drowned or murdered and their body is not found, their family have a very hard time in moving on because they still have a bit of hope that their loved one is still alive out-there.  Whilst this may not necessarily be the case, but because they were not able to lay their loved one to rest they will always have some false hope that things aren’t what it is.

We need the closure, we need the questions answered, we need to see our loved one for just one last time in the flesh.  Closure, because we need to say goodbye to the person in the flesh.  Answered questions because we sometimes need to see to believe.  See our loved ones because though we will always have them in our memory and we may be able to look at a picture to remind ourselves of the moment we shared, not seeing them in the flesh is painful.  So the funeral is for that one last look.

Though a funeral is very sad and full of tears in most cases, it is needed for all!

Do what you love!

Always do what you love.  You would find joy, happiness and peace in it.  No matter what people say or think, always do what you want.  It may take a lot from you and it could also be hard work, but once you love it, it would be all worth it.
