9 Lessons For a Better Year

  • 3 of 9

Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed. Convince me that you have a seed there, and I am prepared to expect wonders. – Henry David Thoreau

Lesson 3: Your dreams are your plans. Live them.

We all want our lives to make sense. We want to feel like we’re making a difference. Still, I see people searching and searching for what they are supposed to be doing. What are you good at? Do that. What makes your heart sing? Do that. What was the thing you did that cultivated the most dramatic results for you and the people you were serving? Do that again. The answers are not “out there” somewhere. Your answers are within you. Look within. Ask questions and when your soul whispers… for the love of all things glittery, do what it says!

(And if you don’t know what that means, call me.)

This article is overflowing with hope & optimism and devoid of judgement or criticism. I am the better for reading it today. I am convinced that often we are all our own worst enemies in that we condemn ourselves nearly every day of our all too short lives. I have few regrets in my own life & I feel I have made very good choices in the opportunities that were presented. Excellent advice for starting a new year or new life. Or, take it one day @ a time (that's all we get, anyway, right?);go out and plant your tomorrow, yet today! You have the seeds there in your pocket! This life/ garden analogy is awe inspiring & truly beautiful bc it is a basic simple truth. Live & appreciate what you can do today...............................

Thank-you for the article. A lot depends on one's own viewpoint. We are all a product of our environment. Yes one has to let go of the past to move forward, however, our past does have a sizable impact on us no matter what. Would it be possible to put all 9 lessons on one page to allow for easier reading? It would be appreciated.
