Points to Ponder #20

“Should you find yourself at a loss, wondering what life is all about and what your purpose is, be thankful. There are those who didn’t live long enough to get the opportunity to wonder.” – Unknown

You’ll probably spend some time this New Years weekend thinking about the good things in your life and your loved ones. Before you do that, take a moment to just consider how lucky you are to be here in the first place. In the 21st century, we can experience more in a month than most people throughout history did in a lifetime. Instead of appreciating that fact, we usually just end up wanting to do and have more. We look at what’s wrong rather than what’s right. This is a perfect time to take a look at your life and priorities again.

Can you make some extra time every day to just enjoy the moment and your loved ones? You’ve been given the gift of a lifetime of moments. Accept the gift and prove yourself worthy.

  1. Nancy, I adore all of your thoughts — we think so much alike. In recent years/decades I thought I cherished and made the most of my time with friends and family. Since my Mom died this year, I’ve realized I could have done so much better. Your appeal is so true and important. It’s something I’m trying very hard to live by. May 2008 bring you and yours continued joy, healthy living, and an abundance of creativity!

  2. I just found you from Dolce Bellezza’s list of blogs and I’m so enjoying myself. This is an especially wonderful posting. And you are so right. Not only do we want to do and have more, but we groan about how little time we have to do things rather than appreciating all those very things. Anyhow, I’ll be back to visit. Very, very nice blog; thank you. (at first I wondered if you were the author, Nancy Bond, but though she wrote a book set in NS, I believe she lives in the US)

I appreciate and welcome your comments!
