The new year. Resolutions gone by the wayside for many by now. Jan 10. Visions of a fresh start…healthier choices, exercise, more discipline, full hearts, fulfilled dreams, extra kindness…fading on day 10. But wait! Do not lose hope. Trust the words of wise Maya and do your best…until you know better…and THEN do better.
Each day we have the opportunity to make choices in how we choose to live. Some of them will be good and others not so much. Do not beat yourself up over the “not so great” choices…reflect, learn and choose differently next time. Some circumstances are completely out of our control that we simply endure…and so we must move on, adapting to the curve balls that life throws us.
Life can be hard folks. I know people making tough choices every day…future decisions being made that are hard and heart-breaking…simple choices that can influence the trajectory of life. At times, the choice should be considered for a while…pros/cons…what ifs…AND at other times, the choice is an impulse-a reaction of the heart. It is all okay. Do your thing people. Do your best. That is all.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5
