The weekly Five Minute Friday is upon us. It’s where a couple hundred bloggers link up to share their thoughts on a common prompt. It’s always interesting to see what pops out of our collective minds in just five minutes.
This week’s prompt is TURN. The timer is set, so let’s GO…
Every new year at the newspaper, I write an editorial titled “It’s Time to Turn the Page.” The editorial typically runs the first Thursday of the new year and includes a recap of accomplishments and — sometimes — failures of the old year. Then, with the words, “It’s time to turn the page …” we look forward to the new year. We make a list of things we would like to accomplish in the new year. But it all boils down to reassessing where we’ve been and where we’re going.
Realistically, we don’t have to wait until the end of/beginning of the year to make that reassessment. We can — and should — be reassessing our lives … STOP
… more frequently. In fact, we should be reassessing our lives daily.
It’s the same principle. We look at our accomplishments and failures of the previous day and, with God’s help, start the new day with a clean slate.
We’re not going to be perfect. We’re going to fail. But we do have the chance to turn the page.
That’s it. Stop in at Kate’s place (http://katemotaung.com/2014/11/06/five-minute-friday-turn/) and see what’s on our minds.
THOUGHT TO REMEMBER: A good life is when you assume nothing, do more, need less, smile often, dream big, laugh a lot and realize how blessed you are.
