Many of us don’t slow down long enough to figure out what went wrong last week and, more importantly, how we can fix it. Far too many of us dread Monday morning. We spend energy mourning the loss of the weekend. Gone way too fast! And anticipate the hassles of the upcoming week.

Take a few minutes to think about the past week. What went great, what went not so great? How can you change it this week?

Live your life

Do you know who you are ? A question on a vintage slate blackboardWho’s agenda are you living?

Maybe you’re still worried what your parents will think of you. You may have buried your true dreams because you imagined that society, your peers, your siblings, or your church would not be satisfied with the real you.

Perhaps guilt, fear, or lack of confidence keep you from living the passion you have burning in your heart, that secret desire that seems too silly, too unacceptable, too unorthodox…or just too scary.

How long will you wait? Until it’s too late?

It’s time to live your own agenda, instead of everyone else’s.
