What are your thoughts?
Saturday, March 17, 2012
Whatever your cultural background or your traditions, we all have something in common---We were born to eventually die. My thoughts are focused on my ability to make those years in between serve me rather than me serve them. So, how am I supposed to accomplish that feat? Well, I believe, that is part of my journey while on earth. I certainly do not know my fate or your fate, but I sincerely want to make every attempt to accomplish my end result with style. Now, you can create your own style---in fact we all can but the trick here is to reach your goal with smartness. So to make that happen, you need to start now to think about your life and what you want it to look like in 10-20-30 years. It is almost like looking at an insurance policy but in this case, the only investment you need to make to accomplish your desired results is to be consciously aware of your attitude, behavior and the environment in which you live-work and play. Believe it or not, it makes all the difference in the world if you function from a place of positivity not negativity.
Again, I will use those words that I say so often we all have choices---sometimes I cave into the weakest side of my choices but nonetheless, I know that if I choose improperly for me, I will pay the price. While you are in your youth, you do not believe it matters but some of those old wife's tales are true; like, you sew what you reap, those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it, the hardest work is to do nothing and it is no use crying over spilt milk.
So is it any wonder that from time to time, I spend moments thinking about my future and how it will end. Don't get me wrong I do not labor over death, in fact, I look forward to that event in my life because I know that I will be welcomed to the other realm hearing a choir of voices singing with joy and celebration welcoming me home. What I am concerned about is how smartly I will get from here to there without being in doom and gloom.
After spending time with Betty, I became very aware of what I do not want to experience that is why I am spending time focusing on the journey that is getting me from point A to that point B. You see, I do have concerns because, I like to cheat when I eat I enjoy my wine too much and I think I sometimes fail to exercise sufficiently to balance my diet of loving to eat good food. So where does this leave me. I am not quite sure. I will tell you though that I am more aware now then ever about how I want my life to play out so I will stay alert to the clues and warning signs when they arise and I will continue to be mindful of my thoughts, my attitude of life, my behavior and how it alters my world; finally, I will always attempt to keep the environment in which I live filled with laughter and joy. I think that is the least that I can do. How about you?
