Taking Stock of Life & Things including 7 Lessons Learned So Far
Quote of the day:
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.
Happy August dear reader. Thanks for the great comments on my last post, and who knows a part two may just be in the offing. One thing I'd like for sure is to be able to travel more, see more of this beautiful world we live in, and learn about new things relating to people, culture, and environment. That being said, while away on my self imposed hiatus, from blogging, I took the opportunity to glance at my goals for 2016, my attempt to accomplish each one so far, my failings and successes, and my outlook for the coming months. I took stock of things, like when you check your supplies at home before going grocery shopping -is the ketchup low enough to warrant buying a new one? Not a great analogy, but you get the picture.
What I've learned so far
1. Although its good to make lofty goals -actually following through is the hardest part.
2. The bigger the goal, the more work and research that is required.
3. The inevitable may occur.
4. Plans may have to be modified at the last minute.
5. Taking stock is necessary, it helps to be aware of the true position of things.
6. Don't do anything you feel uncomfortable doing.
7. Nothing is impossible.
So, when was the last time you truly examined your life, thoughts and goals? We all want to be happy. And even more so, we want the people we love to be happy too. It then makes sense to pause at some point, to focus on the more important things that get us through each day -the moments, friends, family, and dreams. Those things that we hold dear, and which translates into having a more meaningful and purpose filled life -those are the things we should value the most.
Have a purpose filled week!
Peace. Love. Light*
