I need to share with you all something that was shared with me last night at my Women’s Christmas Dinner at Church by the Pastor’s Wife. I found this so profound and if we could do this EVERYDAY in our lives BOY HOWDY we would be MUCH happier people! I’m feel like I am on the right path but still have room for improvement….don’t we all? That’s why we are here!
So it goes like the title….DO what YOU want! No, it doesn’t mean “Go on Girl, do whatever you want, whatcha waitin for?!?” It means, DO what YOU want, DO what YOU want done to you.
If you want for people to like you, then like people and make an effort to get to know them and their heart. “What we think we know about people keeps us from really knowing them.” -Kathy W (she is a friend of Jill’s who spoke before Jill did and was amazing too!).
If you want to reach that next goal, then do what you need to do to reach it, excercise, get support, eat healthy. “Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success.” -Stephen A. Brennan
If you want others to help you and walk with you, then put yourself out there for others and lend them a hand when they need it. “Never look down on anyone unless you are helping them up”
If you want to laugh, then laugh with people! “A sense of humor… is needed armor. Joy in one’s heart and some laughter on one’s lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life.” -Hugh Sidey
So, I am going to analyze my life, my friendships, marriage, and professional relationships. I am going to really think about what I want out of all aspects of my life and I am going to make a list of those things. Then I am going to DO what I want to be done on that list. So the bottom line is:
Make a list.
Read the list.
BE the list.
I don’t know about you but that seems like a pretty simple logic that will take us the rest of our lives to complete, but when we put our best foot forward and give it all we got then we are not just spinning our wheels, we ARE getting somewhere! We are ever-changing and always a work in progress but when we have little nuggets like this to live by it makes life so much more fun, positive, and encouraging!
Not a big Katie Perry fan, BUT I LOVE this song and it’s lyrics, Barney the Big Purple dinosaur could sing it for all I care! It is a beautiful song so I just wanted to share it! It has so much meaning to ALL of our lives! Let you colors BURST!!!
