2018 is just days away and most of us need something like the first day of a week, a month, or better yet a year, to get us recommitted to becoming BETTER.
No matter what happened in your past, or what is happening to you during this present time, there is great hope for your future. While history often does repeat itself, it does not mean that because something happened a certain way before it must happen again.
This is especially true if you are intentional in your plotting of a new course. Look, you can have a lot of self-pity and only think negatively about what lies ahead, but that will not do you any good. If you focus on the past for too long, then yes your future may seem bleak. At the very least you should think about what CAN happen — the good possibilities.
By seeking and actually committing to a future filled with peace and blessings, odds are you will do your best to make it happen. It won’t be easy, and you will have to work hard most of the time, but it will be worth it.
So start right now. Turn the other cheek toward peace within yourself and those around you. Your future is in fact bright. One right decision today is exactly what you need to have the opportunity to make many more tomorrow. The key to the life that you desire lies in your continued pursuit. You don’t just STOP when things are OKAY, AVERAGE, or FINE.
So go and make today count. You don’t have to conquer the world. Start with one good decision, lead your way to a second one and see great things happen before your eyes. It is all about perspective, and being intentional is in fact one of your greatest assets. You did not need me to tell you any of this today, but some of us needed a friendly reminder.
