Today was day 1 of the next 365 marvelous days of 2017. Think about how extraordinary is it that we’re all alive today. Even if it wasn’t a perfect day, it was a gift and we can’t complain about gifts, it’s just bad manners. And if you didn’t like today, I hope that you at least regifted it.
A life spent consistently giving of your time by asking loved ones about their day, their week, what you can do to help them, what their resolution was, how they plan on spending this month, and what you can do to together is the perfect regift of this day that kicks off our new year.
If you haven’t asked anyone you love anything about them and their plans for this week and month, try it. You never know, you could make them feel spoiled from the idea that you thought of them instead of yourself.
It’s easy to get caught up with our thoughts but instead of making them about you, make them about the people you speak to and that share your journey with you. Their life is just as important as yours and you may be shocked to find yourself in complete awe of how humbling it can be to be of service to them instead of yourself.
The selfie life isn’t very fun because the only person in that is you. While we must always love ourselves first, we can’t forget to give that love to others in the form of support and encouragement.
Make 2017 into a year of “Do.” by tracking your goals and encouraging others as they live out theirs. Cheer others on as much as you can, their cheers will echo yours.
May we all stay humble & hopeful.
