I’m in a place where things are changing very rapidly. As things change I wonder what it will look like in the future, and whether I can create a future that I love. I know that each day I live is a miniature of my future to come. I have no control of the future and so if I want my future to be excellent then I need to strive for excellence each day. Each morning is a new opportunity to live an amazing life.
What is an excellent day, then? What does it look like? Waking up energized, ready to face my day. is a good start. Knowing what I want from the day, what I want to achieve by the end of the day, helps too. A good day requires my basic needs to be met – food, shelter, clothing. In the United States our bare minimum is actually greater than the daily lives of the majority of people in the world. This means that those needs are likely met well.
What I have the most control of is myself, not my surroundings. So I need to decide how I want to be. How do I want to behave? Act? Live? Think? What are my morals? Beliefs? It would be nice if those questions were easy to answer. A lot of what I believed in the past was just plain wrong. Creating new belief, though? That’s an interesting proposition. I can’t just take the opposite of the past, that isn’t actually how I want to be. Morals? I know these are a part of my beliefs but I feel that fundamentally these are still mostly unchanged.
What I do know is that I want to help others. I want to show people that they can be, and are already, beautiful people. I want others to see their own worthiness, their own greatness. I want them to see the miracle that they are.
As I went through each step these last few years I had to search for support, and many times go it alone. I would latch on to a single idea. I would believe that the future had the possibility of being better only if things changed. I didn’t go so far as to believe that it would be great but now I do. Now I know that my life, and yours, is a matter of what we make of it. We are amazing human beings and we have the ability to change our world.
I want to be able to shine a light on the darkness so that others can climb their way out of their own dungeons. I want so much to lend a helping hand for those that need it. I do this, by writing, by encouraging, by showing others that there is hope.
May each morning be a new beginning to a wonderful future for you.
