I would like to offer you my year end thoughts.
First, know that sun rises every single day even after the darkest night. Decide to be there to watch the sunrise.
Second, remember that the creator is benevolent. Look to this day for all the gifts brought to you that are seldom acknowledged. An exquisite flower, a crisp breeze, a star twinkling in the midnight blue sky , the scent of a pine tree, a purring senior cat, a bornfire to gather around, fresh sheets and pillow cases , water to refresh, and the ability to look and appreciate the all the extraordinary beauty the world has to offer.
Third, be in the moment, stay in the moment , moment by moment, the present is all we have. Longing for the past and worrying about the future are fruitless endeavours.
Fourth, cherish hellos and goodbyes . Neither is long enough, so make the most of each one.
Fifth, welcome change even if it is an uninvited guest. Know that you could be entertaining “Angels” unaware . Change is the one constant. Make friends with it. Sixth, embrace the real you. There is no one else like you in the universe. You are truly one of a kind and put here for a higher purpose.
Seventh, learn to love the mundane task . By polishing your skills through repetition, it will shine you with a 🌟 stars.
Eight, allow others to speak and you simply listen. This is good exercise in self control and personal development .
Ninth, Accept the inevitable because it always is.
Tenth, express gratitude daily for the acquaintance, friends, and loved ones the universe has gifted you with in your life . These are your true priceless treasures.
Eleventh, memories the following statement . ” Lett nothing disturbing you . Let nothing frightening you . All things are changing. God alone is changeless . Patients attaining the good”.
And a good thought to follow every day.
I shall pass through this world but once, any good therefore, that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any human being , let me do it now. Let me not deter or neglect it , for I shall not pass this way again.
