Monday Mottoes – #119

thI’ve heard it said, “Go where you are celebrated, not tolerated.” For most of us, we hope to make a contribution to the world around us and if others applaud our efforts, so much the better. Yet, in certain cases, what would happen if the wrong ones celebrate us and we take our cue from them?

For instance, I wonder if some of my more easily-impressionable kids came across the path of a very enthusiastic and encouraging person—might they head into that industry, direction, or career just because somebody smiled at them? That’s one of the reasons why I believe it’s so vital that they have a cheering team at home, that we would catch their attention more than the voices surrounding all of us on a daily basis.

Which brings us to today’s motto:

“What you have to decide… is how you want your life to be. If your forever was ending tomorrow, would Purpose Find Yoursthis be how you’d want to have spent it?” ~ Sarah Dessen

I like that idea, the idea of an intentional life, of planning with purpose. Figure out where you want to end up and work backwards from there. It’s life planning from the end… to the beginning and can be very powerful.

And the first step is today. Start heading in the direction that’s right for you. Small tweaks today will pay off in big changes for your future.

Happy Monday, everyone!
