Beautiful but unclear sometimes is the journey of life.
Good Morning and welcome to a new week.
I am a firm believer in having goals…..something to aspire to in all areas of life BUT…..
sometimes I think we all need to determine why we have set the GOAL. Is it for fame, fortune, personal gratification., to make our own lives or those around us BETTER??.
Do your best! Never sacrifice character or personal faith or ‘ethics’ in what you are aiming to achieve.
What if you do not achieve a particular goal? Are you swamped by a sense of failure? Take the time to determine why?……..Is it your fault?……..Did you truly do you best KNOWING IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO and………..failed?
Sometimes these goals can be very personal. ie being the best wife, mother, friend, etc etc…….and you fail. Stuff happens. It all goes ‘belly up’? Was your goal wrong?
Was your intention selfish or an endeavour to win ‘love’ or favour? Be honest. Did you do your best?
OK – Then we need to dust ourselves off………keep going. Do we keep GOALING…..??
There is a past which is gone forever, but there is still a future which is still our own.
Starting with tomorrow my personal goal will be I will get up with the attitude…..today is not yesterday. Today I will do my best to make a positive indent on something or someone.
LIVE RADIANTLY – MAKE A DIFFERENCE WITH EVEN A PIN-PRICK OF LIGHT. (maybe a smile)
I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions.
I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

I love this Faye!! And I do try mightily to live it, but being the flawed human being I am I fail at times and dip my toes in the self-pity pond at times. By the grace of God though as I have gotten older (and a tidge more wiser,) I no longer jump-in for a swim! Your delightful post reminds me to do what is necessary not to set a NEW goal where I don’t even approach the edge of this glimmering pond and instead surrender even these failures to Him! HUGS & Blessings for the opportunity for goal-setting!
Even though I am a flawed human being, I do try. Your post reinforces my goals and inspires me to do my best. And to keep striving no matter what happens or what I encounter.
