“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me.’”
- Erma Bombeck
You can so do and be that! You become, slowly and surely, the giver, the servant, the lover, and become the elder statesman.
Use it all up!
Focus on the frustration of the day OR on gratitude for your life.
Binge on Netflix - or on learning and growing.
Snack on carbs and sugar OR on fresh veggies or fruit.
In a hurry, avoiding folks as you quickly pass OR
...greet each soul you encounter with love.
Choose love today.
Think about the energy of your thoughts.
Think about how the thoughts become your actions.
Like, decisions you make.
Like, what you say in your conversations.
Like, what you eat.
What you buy.
Even what you hear.
Frame every thought, every word, everything in love.
Then, every action will be framed in love.
Your world will fill with love.
Like, what people say to you.
Like, what people feel when you are with them.
Like, what you feel no matter what.
Framed in love,
Acting in love,
The wise know all goodbyes are temporary,
that happiness has nothing to do with what others think or do,
that we are wisest when we know
that life is always right, even when circumstances are not.
Being wise is being at peace.
Today, let us go toward that peace.
