This weekend my sister and I went to our father’s family reunion. It was complete with traditional Southern food, family games, and lots of fellowship. A big part of the reunion is catching up. This generally involves a 1 minute recap of your year. This recap is repeated over and over again as aunts, uncles, and cousins are greeted. For some, the recap is the same old, same old thing. No new news.
While for others, it is all about the moves they are making & great improvements in their lives. Good news.
Which type of news will you have?
Good news doesn't just happen.
Which have you been working towards? What things monopolize your time? Do they fit into the vision of Your Best Minute? How can you improve it?
Imagine it’s one year from today. Write out your one-minute year recap.
What moves have you made since Summer 2016? What are your contributions? How is your life better?
“Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! There are only so many tomorrows.” ~ Pope Paul VI
It’s hard to believe France has had another horrific terrorist attack and on their Independence Day. We continue to have France in our thoughts. I have extended family in France. I want to mention a few life lessons that I have learned over the years from my French brother and sister.
1. Experience all life has to offer. They have lived in multiple countries, are multi-lingual, love experiencing new cultures and new people and continue to strive for more of life. It is a large part of their culture to live life to the fullest. Are you living your life to the fullest?
2. Be passionate. I was shown a real hunger for what life has to offer. From fresh baked bread & soft cheeses to their heritage and history, there is great pride. The passion is palpable and enviable. Are you exhibiting your passion for life?
3. Love, love, love. Love fully, deeply, completely. I learned a strong message of never being ashamed of love no matter how you express it. I guess this is where the French kiss came from. Are you expressing or suppressing your love?
How can you reach out more, experience life, and share your message of love?
Sending Love all around the world,
