Incomplete Days

~Hey Hey!! I pray you’re all making peace with the unchangeable elements in your lives. This week has flown by! I was supposed to inform you all, in last weeks adventure, there wasn’t going to be a journey this week… I completely forgot!

I’m still in licensing class for my job, we’re actually prepping for our state exam next week (pray for my success), therefore, my focus has been mainly on this class. I’m not going to go too deep this week (I have a lot of studying to do). I hope you’re still able to enjoy our journey together!! Ready? Indulge & Enjoy!!~

So here I am, sitting in this class. I’m stressed about the material because I don’t feel I’m retaining it the way I should be… However, I continue to try each day. My instructor is pretty dope though! She has a way of teaching the material while making it less boring. One of the main things I love about her is, story time is all the time. She shares so many intimate family stories and somehow finds a way to tie them to insurance.

While telling a story this week, she shared something her Mother said often… No sooner than she said it, my mind started to explore days I’ve felt incomplete…

Have you ever had one of those days? A day where everything seemed to go “right,” however, you still weren’t satisfied? I mean you did everything you set out to do, but, the day still doesn’t seem complete? As the sun goes down, you wonder what would have made the day better, however, nothing really stands out? Well, think about this…

3 Things You Need Daily to be Happy:

– Something to do…

-Somewhere to go…

-Someone to love…

(Quote from My Instructor’s Mom)

Now, reflect back to one of the days we were just talking about. The ones that felt incomplete. Was one of these things missing? Was there nothing to do that day? Nowhere to go? Or, maybe you just couldn’t find someone to love on for the day?

We, the human race, forget the importance of giving love as well as being loved. I feel just as good giving love as I do getting it. It has nothing to do with physical intimacy. Love can be shown in so many different ways…

Spending time with people you care about. Volunteering your time doing something in your community (literally covers all three). Intentionally, doing something nice for an un-expecting recipient.

For me, hearing this was exactly what I needed. I’ve had so many incomplete days, and, when I think about them, one of the three was always missing. It wasn’t always the same element missing either. The conclusion I was able to come to? By implementing this small guide to my day, I’ll never have an incomplete day again!

As always, feel free to ask questions and/or leave feedback in the comments section.
