Life Doesnt Have A Sell By Date


Or does it?

Best on or before?.. Nearly everything we touch nowadays has a sell by date somewhere on the packaging.

When is your best before date? What's the date when you will be thrown away. What's the date when it has been decided that you are no longer at your best? What's the date when you are reduced in order to get you off the shelf?

We know. Life doesn't have a sell by date. Or does it?

Some of our friends run their lives as though there is a sell by date. They work night and day. They have all the gismos, mobile phone, BlackBerry, i-Pod, everything that is necessary to keep them in contact with the world. Everything to ensure they are available at a moments notice whatever the time. Day or night. They won't even go jogging unless they have those infamous 'white wires' in their ears. They are saying to the world. I have a sell by date. I am at my best now. If you don't buy me before?. then I will be thrown in the rubbish bin.

Just stop for a moment. Ask yourself.

Do you run your life as if you have a sell by date? Are you running your life at such a speed that you feel that you are the hot property now and in a few months it will be all over? Do you believe that your life is like a product that has a minimal shelf life?

If you are running your life in this way then there must come a time, as you get nearer and nearer to the sell by date, when you become less and less important. Your retailer will do anything to get rid of you. Your price is reduced so much that it is almost given away.

If this is the case, what are you going to do with the rest of your life?

We are just as capable of learning when we are 50 as when we are 15. So what's the problem? Why are you working yourself to death? What is it that makes you feel that you are on a short time frame?

People. You and Me. Limit ourselves. You stop yourself from learning. In other words:the person who suggests you have a sell by date is??? you.the person who makes you work excessive hours at an excessive pace is?.you. the person who stops you having 'prime' time with your family is???you.

Answer this question:What is it about yourself that you like?

We have been brought up to cherish that which you really love. To care for things you really like. So, when we have something that we like very much, we treasure it.

So why don't you cherish yourself?

Go on make the effort. It's worth it.

Good Luck
