Becoming the best version of yourself

Thoughts For A New Decade – – –

80739427-B5A8-4DAB-86DD-C3B8E6513C6B

It’s been a while since I offered thoughts in a “series”, so when I found this above, it seemed like it just spoke to me about taking good care of myself.   Hope you feel the same as we tackle this one by one over the next fews posts.

Starting with the first thought:

“Its Not My Job To Fix Others”

When did we start to think it was?  Was it when we began to be entitled enough to think that we knew it all?  I’ve witnessed some amazing changes over the newer generations thinking that it had to be “my way or the highway”.  There’s a reason it was labeled the “ME” generation.

We didn’t want to “hurt their feelings”.

For me, I plan to really focus on working to make myself, and only myself, the best version of “myself”.   It is NOT my job to fix others, or expect them to fall inline with how I chose to live my life.  Neither is it their job to fix me.

“Can’t we all just get along”?  Clearly if you listen to the news media, we cannot.  I think if we focus on making ourselves the best version of ourselves, we could take huge steps toward the possibility of a kinder and gentler mankind.

I plan to be WAY more accepting in this next decade, and hope that you will indulge me in my efforts to live and let live.

May Your 2020 Be The Best Year Ever

And the best way to make that happen?  Follow the advice above, and start the new year with a clean slate.

2019, that I had predicted to be my year, decided to be full of challenges and loss for me.  The hardest being the loss of my Mom at the age of just “one month shy” of turning 101.

Looking back and reflecting on her life?  She was kind to everyone.  She never spoke ill of anyone unless they purposely hurt one of her family.  But most of all?  She forgave.

So in 2020 I vow to forgive more, and look for that elusive peace so that I can make her proud.  Wishing you all the best 2020 has to offer.
