I had a thought while commenting over at "Weight Loss and God Whispers". We are starting with a blank slate- today will be our first entry of the 365 entries we will make this year. This would be a good time to start writing each morning and evening about plans and then about how it went including any corrections that need to be made and any challenges coming up. One thing we must keep in mind is that we cannot erase any of the 365 entries we get to make. We can take some corrective actions or adjust things but what we write today is written in ink. No pencils.
Last year's slate is all written up - some of it may be smeared with tears; tears of sadness or tears of joy. Tears are liquid prayers. We need to study last year's writings so that this year will be free of some of the sufferings and failures. If last year's slate was full of success and good stuff - we need to write a sequel this year.
We will be writing a series. Each year will be another edition of our lives and will be put on the shelf with the others and as they stack up our lives are continuing and we are becoming something. This something can be a new version or it can be a repeat.
When someone else reads what we have written, what will that person learn about us?
Ink pens in hand - today has begun and we get to write. Let's choose what we write carefully.
