Definition of a dash! “Dashes are used to separate groups of words, not to separate parts of words like a hyphen does.”

One day I sat and thought what is the purpose of a dash. In particular what makes a dash so important. So important that it rest between the year that we are born and the year that we are removed from this earth.The dash seems more than just a punctuation when viewed from that aspect.

Let’s call it the in between from here on out. Many things can happen , take place, and occur within that dash. From start to finish.
– We fall in love
– We lose loved ones
– We take risks
– We win we lose
– We change
– We grow
These are just a few of the things that happen during the “in between”. What’s important is what we accomplish between our dash.
– Did we leave this place better than how it was when we first encountered it?
– Who’s life did we impact?
– What kindness did we do?
– Were we selfish?
– Did we try a new task?
– Did we set a goal?

In life time flies. We rush, we get into a routine, and at times we forget the important things.

Slow down! Realize though at this very moment there may be just one date and a dash in your life, that a second date is constantly approaching. It is absolutely positively inevitable. Make the most of the in between. Follow your heart, mend broken relationships, get closer to your loved ones and most importantly seek ye first the kingdom of God.

Enjoy your dash! It is absolutely going to be one hell of a ride. Live and enjoy the in between! Have no regrets. Carpe Diem!
