Before I Die

BrotherWord - No Regrets

I came across this great article and it made me think of the path I’m pursuing.  I truly believe my life has been given a purpose that has merged with my passion.  That said, I do sometimes think of the murky waters I’ve traversed and the roads less traveled as I’ve tried to understand this thing we call life.  How often have many of us said, “If I knew then what I know now,” or thought if I could I could tell my younger self something, it would be….  Reflecting on the past is a good tool to determine progress or regress.  What is unfortunate is when time has just about expired and you realize all the things you wished  you would have done.  Please take a moment to read this article about a nurse who heard first hand accounts from many people expressing their deepest regrets as they were on their death beds.  Learn from their stories and begin living the lives you desire.

Thankful Thursday!

BrotherWord - Thankful Thursday - Life Lessons

Today I am most THANKFUL for life’s lessons.  Life has a way of bringing out the best, and sometimes the worst, in all of us, but either way, it will challenge your every fiber and force you to grow and expand mentally and emotionally.  Every storm is followed by sunshine, and sometimes a beautiful rainbow.  Although it may be hard to find the silver lining during hardships, know that it exists.  Even when you can’t see it or have doubts, hold onto that belief, fight through, and remember this too shall pass.  No different from school, we are tested to see if we have learned and retained the lesson, and such is life.

We have to go through the fire to be purified and polished.  Gold is dull and lackluster until it is put through extreme heat and a diamond is no more than a lump of coal before it is put through extreme pressure.  From both you are rewarded with a rare and valuable jewel, just like life’s lessons.  The things we go through shape us into the people we are and strive to become.  Be THANKFUL for your life lessons as they are a road map to your future and breadcrumbs from where you’ve come.

Life is the greatest teacher and the lessons it offers will carry you through the best and worst days.  So, take it for all it’s worth and enjoy the ride.  THANK you LIFE for blessing me with opportunity after opportunity to share my lessons with all I can reach and learn  from all that I meet.

What are you most THANKFUL for today?  Share your life lessons and moments of THANKS with #BrotherWord.
