It’s starting to get easier. Easier to be the person I want to be. It’s been several months since I began my journey to live each day like it is my last. I have found I have started to make a difference in other’s lives. I have found I am happier now than I have been in a very long time. I feel great, and I am looking forward to writing every day.
I have tried to become a better person many times before. The last time I can remember was New Year’s Eve a few years ago. I made the vow to be a better, kinder person. Within days of my resolution, we had a family trip with everyone up North. If you recall, that trip ended with me yelling at one of your aunts and pointing my middle finger at the other. I ended up storming out of the cabin and heading home after a mild disagreement about Obamacare.
Why did the attempts to change fall so flat before? Because I didn’t ask for help. I tried to do it on my own. This time I asked for help. I started by just committing and going to church every Sunday. I asked God to help me lead a better life. I asked God to inspire me to go down the path he saw for me.
This time it worked. I feel inspired to make a difference every day. I have reached out and re-formed relationships that were long overdue. I re-established my faith and even developed the courage to tell about it here on FB. I got rid of many regrets and at least tried to make up for some of them.
So many wonderful things have happened in my life over the last few months. There is no doubt God is working through me. I no longer sit around and think about where I will be in 5 years. I no longer worry about tomorrow. Living each day as if it’s your last is the best thing ever. Give it a try.
