How many times do I wonder about the future? What should I chase? What should I let go?
What do I have? What do I want? What’s important?
While thumbing through Netflix one evening, I saw a series called Chasing Life. The cover, which had a young girl sitting on a coffin, didn’t appeal to me, except to generate reluctance for its suggested content. I wasn’t in the mood for death or anything pertaining to it.
A few weeks later, after spending too much time trying to find something to watch, my husband happened to notice the cover. Why don’t we see what that one is about? So, tired of searching for something else, I clicked on the series, Chasing Life.
We were immediately caught up in the storyline and couldn’t wait for the next episode to air.
While I searched for time and listing for the next season to air, I found future episodes are abandoned. What? Four episodes to go and we’re finished. From a friend who had already seen the series, I understand the last episode ends on a cliffhanger. Of course, since in the beginning they most likely expected there would be more of the storyline to air, but that isn’t to be.
I suppose that’s the same as pursuing life. We enjoy the ride for a while, and then the road either takes us in circles or ends. And…roads have many curves.
Okay, so what do I have? Love, family, friends, my health, a comfortable life?
What do I want?
The list above covers it all.
The same list above gives me all the things in life that is important—important to me.
In the pursuit of life, the future is unknown. I can only be accountable for what I do in the now…but plan for potential growth. I can let go of areas I can’t control.
Are you chasing life? What’s important to you?
