Today I Will

filed under: Miscellaneous on December 6, 2010

I am having such an amazing time on vacation so far… the revelations and insights revealed to me have been life changing!!  God sure knows good timing ya know!? ๐Ÿ™‚

So I wanted to share some things that have been put on my heart for me to work on… some things that I would like to make permanent staples of who I am.  

Each one of these resembles the kind of person that I want to be…


Today I will…

be known as someone who laughs easily.

say yes more then I say no.

listen intently as someone speaks to me.

delight in the little things.

choose to be grateful instead of feeling sorry for myself.

not try to make myself seen, but to truly see others.

try to see others point of view.

give thanks for all my blessings. 


What will you do today?
