With every New Year, people tend to begin with new and bold expectations.
Are you a person you makes New Year’s resolutions?
I am NOT a New Year’s resolution type person, but I am very into goal-setting and having a purpose for each day.
“It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.” ―Winston S. Churchill
“The best way to lengthen out our days is to walk steadily and with a purpose.” ―Charles Dickens
Your purpose (your vision) for the next days (weeks, months, years, decades) may be as simple as keeping a clean house so that it is a welcoming place for guests, daily making a point to show unmerited kindness to a person, begin to learn a new language, read a book a week, join a local club or organization… There are thousands of choices.
I believe that a person needs a reason to get-out-of-bed each morning.
It doesn’t have to be big.
It doesn’t have to change the world.
Doesn’t always matter how fast, or even if you need a little help.
But getting up every morning – with a definitive purpose for your day – will allow 2021 to be a year worthy of remembering.
