Wednesday Wisdom

Seed tomorrow with wise change today!

As I live this first month of a New Year, I contemplate specific changes I want to make as the rest of the months unfold. 

Although I may not remember when I first read who said what, there are thoughts that have stayed with me from the first time I read them:

Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.

Change is painful, but less painful than staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.

Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.

All things are difficult before they are easy.

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but few think of changing themselves.

Be the change you want to see in the world.

All change starts with self.

God willing, we’ll have 11 more months of 2021 to make changes that will make a difference with what matters most.

No better day than today to start the process.

Life is calling . . .  Today’s the day!

Seed tomorrow with wise healing today!

If you’re reading this, I will imagine you love this country as much as I do. And, the events over the last week have been gut wrenching. Democracies are fragile and need to be understood and sustained by their people. Former first lady Michelle Obama, in a statement addressing last Wednesday’s violence at our sacred US Capitol reminds us of OUR responsibility now:

The work of putting America back together, of truly repairing what is broken, isn’t the work of any individual politician or political party. It’s up to each of us to do our part. To reach out. To listen. And to hold tight to the truth and values that have always led this country forward. It will be an uncomfortable, sometimes painful process. But if we enter into it with an honest and unwavering love of our country, then maybe we can finally start to heal.

Many have felt the need for healing for quite some time now.  The restorative process is not easy nor without pain, however, if we want our republic to sustain itself, the great experiment we are experiencing needs our help. If not you, who?  If not now, when? If now together, how?

Seed tomorrow with wise habit forming today!

Here we are . . . 2021. Reflecting upon the past and welcoming the new, many think about things they began doing differently in 2020. Some we did so routinely they became new habits. It’s now time to make intentional decisions about what to carry into the New Year and what to leave behind. Centuries ago, Aristotle reminded us:

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.

Character rises from an amalgamation of our patterns . . . as you sow, so shall you reap. January 2022 will appear faster than we expect. We will, once again, look back with satisfaction or regret. So, let’s welcome the New Year with deliberation, purpose, and resolve as our behaviors become expressions of who we are through the consistent, unconscious patterns in our daily lives.
