with the end in mind!
This is Habit #2 from The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey.
I truly only have a few regrets in my lifetime, not because I haven’t made my fair share of mistakes… because I have definitely made plenty. But because I choose an attitude of gratitude with which to view my “mistakes” as effective life lessons.
As Melody Beattie says in her book of daily meditations The Language of Letting Go, “Life is a gentle teacher.” She will continue to provide the same lessons again and again until we learn them.
Among my few regrets, digital scrapbooking via social media is NOT one of them.
The reason for that is Habit #2 noted above.
In this way, I can be CONFIDENT that my kids will continue to have me talking with them (should they choose to listen) well after I’m gone from this world, until we meet again in Paradise.
I take great comfort in that powerful notion.
What does “Begin with the end in mind” prompt you to take action on today?
Additionally, the latest video in my virtual scrapbook is THIS message:
Wherever you go, there you are!
Sounds simple enough… but if you continue in the definition of insanity “repeating the same actions, expecting different results” — you only have yourself to blame.
It’s a Wonderful Wellness Wednesday and I pray you discover eternally satisfying peace and joy in The Art of Well-Being in your own life.
