Baby Steps

As I watch my 1-year-old son try to learn to walk with his walker, I am reminded that life provides us with certain gifts. To waste those gifts is unthinkable to me at this point in my life. It wasn’t too long ago, however that I didn’t necessary practice what I pontificate.

Sharing your gifts with others is important. Giving back to the community is important. Taking care of one’s family is important. Writing down a goal and sharing that goal with others is vital. Taking ownership of your goals is key to making changes in your life. Once you have made the visualized changes in your life is when you can start to give back.

It is one thing to lose weight. It is another to help others to the same. One can mature and become a positive force in your community. Bitterness and negativity just breeds more suffering. Choose the positive.
