Have you ever thought about the legacy you will leave. When they write on your tombstone, what will it say. You are the master creator of your life. You only have a limited amount of years on this great earth, so each year should be lived with purpose and direction. Sure, most of us flounder around for a bit. But it is important to get on a positive course. When a new year approaches, you can be proud of what you have accomplished the previous year and be hopeful about what you will accomplish this year.
It is so sad that many people live their lives unhappy. They are sad about many things in their lives. They focus on the negative and can’t even see the many positives in their lives. Unfortunately, what you dwell on in life, you actually create more of that same thing. If you dwell on sadness and depression, you will likely attract more of that into your life. If you truly want a happy and fulfilling life, practice being happy about the things that are good. If you take just a moment and look around, you will find good in every life. Even the worst criminal has something in their life to be grateful for. It is simply up to that person to find it.
All of us are created with special gifts and talents. Our creator was just and fair when he formed us. Your talent may be different than mine, but it does not diminish my worth. People get discouraged when they don’t appreciate the gifts they have and they covet the gifts of others. If you use your gift wisely, it will be a blessing to you and those around you. Every new year can be the start of increasing your influence and talent. Each year that you allow your talents to go unused..that is time wasted. We can’t get back wasted time. When it is gone, there is nothing to do but use the time we have left. The thing to remember is nobody knows how much time they have, so live every day on purpose.
