On Monday, January 30th, five days before the next biggest game of his life, #12, TB, the 🐐, 4-time Super Bowl champion and 3-time Super Bowl MVP of the New England Patriots, Tom Terrific, arguably the best quarterback to ever play professional football, revealed raw, sweet, and tender emotion at a pre Super Bowl LI presser as he responded to a reporter asking him who he considered to be his personal hero.

Filling Our Time with What Matters Most

We can fill our time and our lives with a lot of things. From noise to meaning and everything in between.

But we only have so much capacity, so much time. And although life can be very forgiving, time is not. The sand in the hourglass of life never takes a holiday and the amount of sand that we have left at any given moment is never within our view.

As Keith Urban sings, “days go by.” Games are played. Seasons change. Relationships begin and end. Dreams and memories both fade and are made anew. People die. And the hands on the clock never stop moving clockwise.

So we must fill our days and nights the best we can by doing what matters most. To us. Individually.

Filling ourselves full of that which most satisfies our minds, our hearts, and our spirits. Immersing ourselves in and with the people, activities, and experiences that we most enjoy. Living on purpose.

Filling our time with what matters most. While we still have time to fill.

Leave no doubt,

Jay

Sublime Plan - Blog Post

Life is not merely a series of meaningless accidents or coincidences. But rather, it’s a tapestry of events that culminate in an exquisite, sublime plan.

What a beautiful and visually-powerful reminder that life and all of its colors, patterns, and variations are individually relevant and collectively meaningful to our complete life story. That every thread, every experience, every stitch, plays a vital part in the creation and complete expression of the whole tapestry. Even if we can’t always see or appreciate the exquisiteness or sublimity in real time. Which is why sometimes – okay, more often than not – we need a reminder to be patient, exercise faith, and trust the process. Trust that our own individual tapestry is in the hands of the Great Weaver and that He does have an exquisite, sublime plan for each one of us. Trust that we are all exactly where we should be, are experiencing exactly what we should be experiencing, and that ultimately all of our life’s experiences will, together, weave and reveal a divinely-inspired and individually-perfect tapestry for each of us. Exactly as planned.
