My day has been insanely busy but at this moment, I feel refreshed. I had so many ideas today I wish I’d written down (WORKING ON IT). I’m going to wing it! 😀
In honor of today’s blogging challenge, I dedicate this post to YOU.
I mentioned that I have some awe-inspiring goals. I haven’t actually written them all down yet, but one of the first is to inspire you to be the best you can possibly be. As cheesy as this sounds, you can achieve every single one of your dreams. You can be exactly the person that you want to be. The key? Believe that you can.
It’s not going to happen overnight. It won’t even be easy, but it’ll be 100% worth it. And I speak from experience. I no longer have “bad” days. My life is simply awesome…every second of it.
Approximately half a year ago, I read a book by Og Mandino, The Greatest Miracle in the World. It is a fabulous book, but it contains a hidden treasure that those who quit reading early would never find. This treasure is the God Memorandum. I’ve uploaded a template that I personally formatted because I liked the text so much. Whether or not you consider yourself religious, I challenge you to read it at least once. If it inspires you, print a copy, write your name and date, and keep it in your room! If not, no harm done 🙂
I’m going to end this post with a short story1 I love.
The Starfish Story
One day a man was walking along the beach when he noticed a boy picking something up and gently throwing it into the ocean.
Approaching the boy, he asked, “What are you doing?”
The youth replied, ” Throwing the starfish back into the ocean. The surf is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back, they’ll die.”
“Son,” the man said, “don’t you realize there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish? You can’t make a difference!”
After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish, and threw it back into the surf. Then smiling at the man, he said, “I made a difference for that one.”
So I say again if I can change just your life for the better, the effort will be well worth it. In fact, I’m truly blessed because you aren’t a starfish2. You are the greatest miracle in the world and hold unimaginable power. If you find this blog improves your day, share it with someone. You just might help them out too! More inspiration to come tomorrow 😎
