Wise Words From Pope Francis: We Can All Take Something From the Pope's Inspiring Advice by Dawn Lantero
Reading these words from Pope Francis inspired me to be a better mom and a happier person. Here are the wise words from the Pope:
"This life will go by fast. Don't fight with people, don't criticize your body so much, don't complain so much. Don't lose sleep over your bills. Look for the person that makes you happy. If you make a mistake, let it go and keep seeking your happiness. Never stop being a good parent. Don't worry so much about buying luxuries and comforts for your home. Don't dedicate yourself to accumulating money. Enjoy, travel, see new places, give yourself the pleasures you deserve. Allow dogs to get closer. Don't put away the fine glassware. Utilize the new dinnerware; don't save your favorite perfume, use it to go out with yourself; wear out your favorite sport shoes; repeat your favorite clothes.
"Why not now? Why not pray now instead of waiting until before you sleep? Why not call now? Why not forgive now? We wait so long for Christmas; for Friday; for Reunions; for another year; for when I have money; for love to come; when everything is perfect.
"Everything perfect doesn't exist. Human beings can't accomplish this because it simply was not intended to be completed here. Take this challenge that is life and do it now ... love more, forgive more, embrace more and leave the rest in God's hands."
