Building your youth
Once we become grown-up’s there is simply no turning back. You can’t take back any experiences you’ve already lived. In this world and time, kids are evolving entirely too fast in all the wrong ways. Their innocents vanish before the age of 12. Slow and steady always win the race. If you move too fast, you might postpone a value lesson you were in such a hurry to discover. I wouldn’t say you’ll miss out on the lesson because if any lesson in life is meant for you, it will eventually find you. These lessons and experiences help us improve and develop into who God truly intended us to be.
When these precious steps are missed, believe me they still get discovered. In some cases, most is explored during the young adult stages when something inside triggers that you are missing a very valuable asset needed in your foundation to properly advance. Whether it is something you missed when you were too concerned with growing up or just miseducated by the lack of. You will eventually seek it in your adult life.
Things to concern :
- When little girls behave like young women, people may approach them as such
- There is no childhood to reflect on
- No foundation for the future, going with the strokes, lack of structure - results in searching for it in society
- If more kids remain kids, society would have less kid-adults
- “Kid-adults” : adults that still have an immature mind and are incapable of making responsible decisions.
A child will learn, experience and discover just about all he or she needs in their time frame of life if they’re properly guided by parents. SO that once he or she becomes a young adult they then use those experiences to create a brighter future. Rather than improperly advancing to the next stage without the proper tools.
Living out your youthfulness
But what happens once you have surpass “the youthful age”? Is it now time to be an adult and cut out all the things you enjoy... HELL NO!!! That theory is a disaster waiting to blow up. A life without the things you enjoy is a miserable waste of time. Don't put yourself through that. I recently had a discussion with an 70 year old person who believed we lived to die. Now don't get me wrong I know that is the end result but what about the time in between. Do you just wake up expecting to die and if it doesn't happen you wake up tomorrow expecting the same thing?! No thanks. I'm fine with dying because I know this life on earth is just temporary. I wouldn't dare live my days as though I'm leaving in this moment. How unfulfilling is that?! I'm living to create and live out my purpose God gave me. All my talents and ambitions shining so beautifully in the world. Thats what Im living for to be used in a purposeful way. Maybe once you've reached a certain age that becomes your mindset. Seems very poisonous to me. Why allow those negative thoughts to take over your being. You're not dead, just old. There’s a difference, God is allowing you to continue serving his purpose for your life. So many people believe in strictly work, family, and no in between time for yourself. Of course all of these things I've mentioned makes up a great life but make sure you aren't using them as a procrastination for avoiding yourself or your true passion. Just because it didn't happen in the moment you expected it to doesn’t mean it’s not going to occur. You are allowed to enjoy the times that once made you happy, just not as frequently.
There is no greater time than the present. John Trusler, amplified it: “No time like the present, a thousand unforeseen circumstances may interrupt you at a future time”. So go see a show, hang with your girlfriends, start back working out! Simply avoid the excuses and make time!
