“Go home and be good to your wife, treat your children with respect, and do a good job at whatever you’ve been given to do.”
Well, your new years day is almost over.
How did you spend it?
When you woke up this morning did you do the same thing you did yesterday?
Was it just another day today or was there anything different that made it special?
How did you talk to your family today?
Were your words filled with grace or was there an angry inflection in your tone?
When you got frustrated, did you respond the way you always do, or was there something different about the way you spoke today?
What did you purchase today that wasn’t simply to appease the shopaholic inside?
When you asked someone to do something today, was it for your convenience or theirs?
How did you serve your neighbor today?
When you look back over your thought life today, was it filled with worry, anxiety or anticipation?
What did you eat today that will fuel your body well for tomorrow?
How much sleep do you plan to get tonight?
Who did you call today to tell you love them?
What simple act of kindness did you do to let those around you know you love them?
What did you do today to move closer to your dream tomorrow?
How did you passively let time fly by today that you can’t get back?
How do you plan to wake up tomorrow?
Today is New Year’s Day.
The Year has begun.
The simple act of living well begins here.
And don’t look back.
