Be Better

be betterAs I approached one of those milestone birthday’s, a friend remarked that now I was really old. “Did you know that your life is half over?” she said. “What will you do with the rest of it?”

Wow! That kind of rocked me back on my heels. I really began thinking about that question and the more I thought about it, the more I realized that I did not have the answer. So I thought about it. Then I thought about it some more. What did I really want to do with the rest of my life???

For me, it was not about having more money or more toys or more vacations. What did I want? Hmmmm.

Then, almost a year later, it came to me. I simply wanted to be better. Not that things were really that bad before, but in my perspective, I think there is always room for improvement. So I decided that I wanted to be a better wife, better friend, better worker, better neighbor, etc. And so, there it is. I approach each day and try to be better.

As you move through time and space, think about what you want. Do you want to be better?
