I celebrated my 31st birthday about a week and a half ago and I have to say that with the new year added to my age, I feel like I've been granted a little more wisdom.
Ah, yes, the joy of getting older and finally understanding more of the world around me.
But I've been doing a lot of thinking, a good amount of clearing and cleaning and seeing things in my life a little bit more clearly.
I also tend to feel that exercise helps me to think as well, maybe that's why I like marathons so much. I feel like I can go through the full range of my emotions through 26.2 miles. Maybe I should be counting how many times throughout the run I feel like jumping for joy, crying my eyes out or wanting to scratch someone's eyes out. I wish I was joking. : )
But I've learned that the little things in life are going to be the pieces of my life that are going to make the most difference.
Let me break that down.
I'm thinking that making a difference in other's peoples lives is going to be more important to me than anything else.
It's not going to be just about the dollar signs or just about who likes me for this or for that, but rather how I made them feel or how I made an impact on them.
So I know that I need to focus on things that are not going to benefit just me, but as many people as I can possibly reach out to.
Just some thoughts for today.
