To everything there is a season

Why can’t you have it all?

Why can’t you have all of your dreams?

Why can’t you “be all that you can be”? The military thinks so, if you believe the slogan, so why can’t you embrace all of the possibilities in the name of peace?

I can make newspapers and books and music albums, and I have over the years. It’s a long life and there is time enough. It’s a big world and there is room enough.

Dividers like to pump up the stress and resentment and declare impossibilities, but they have their own reasons for doing so.

What if the purpose is to live life to its fullest, all of us? Where’s the stress in that? What’s to resent?

If there is a season for everything and a time for every purpose under heaven, then it’s time for something right now. Let it be your thing.
