Making the Most of Your Life

So I am writing to you just as I am celebrating another birthday. I really try not to make a big deal out of birthdays. However, one thing that I always do is try to take time to reflect on my life and how I have grown as a person over the last year. It is always fun to sit down and write down the new lessons and discoveries I have made. It is hard to believe that we are coming to the end of summer. Many are taking their last vacations. Others are shopping and getting ready to go back to school. It is safe to say that it never seems like summer is long enough. Time is such a precious gift that I think we often take for granted. I want to share a few insights with you on making the most of your life.

  1. Protect your heart in every season. I am sure we can agree that pain and pressure are part of this thing called life. We cannot avoid them and we cannot isolate ourselves from pain. On the other hand, I have discovered over the years that you can mature and learn how to protect your heart in every season. How is that possible? Essentially, you must make the decision to never allow a moment of pain to poison your for a lifetime. Over the years, I have learned how to protect my heart even in the most turbulent times. You must make a decision that no event, circumstance or condition in your life will have the power to shake you or shape your future. You must be able to go through difficult times without allowing those times to define your life. Ultimately, our attitude in adversity determines the altitude of our lives. The condition of your heart is the catalyst for how high you go in life. Do not allow the dark seasons of your life to break you. Choose to get better and not bitter. I am so glad to know that trouble does not last always. However, the truths that I learn in troubled times hold the key to transforming everything about my life. Never limit your life by an experience. Live an emancipated life by protecting your heart.
