The purpose of my blog is to share with you ideas on how to cultivate a good life – and record it. I hope that’s what you gain from coming here.
There is one thing I have always tried to be careful about. This is a quote from my blog last week (on Oct. 3):
Depending on how long you’ve been familiar with me, my brand, my blog … most of you know that my faith is at the center of who I am as a human being. I most definitely consider myself a religious person. However, it is not my style to shove religion down anyone’s throat. So much of my personal happiness is because of the principles I’ve learned in my life as a Christian – but I don’t expect everyone to share all my same beliefs. And I’m very respectful of the fact that probably every religion (and the lack thereof) is represented in my readership here. I love that.
I wanted to preface with this because today I watched a talk by a man – a leader in our Church – that I respect and appreciate so very much. As I was deeply moved by his message about Regrets and Resolutions I couldn’t help but feel very introspective. But I also couldn’t get you (my reader) out of my mind. What he shares is completely timely for so many of us, especially those of us who love the art of doing something with the memories we’re making and the lives we’re living. I thought about sharing some quotes, examples, and even my own feelings about what he said, and expressions of what I’d personally like to work on right now.
And then I realized that there is no better way to convey this message than to just invite you to watch with your own eyes, feel with your own heart, and decide what message is in here – for you. Something that you need to hear right here, right now. No matter what your religion or nationality or location or marital status. This message applies to each of us.
Part of cultivating a good life is opening your heart and allowing the wisdom of another be just the boost you needed right about now.
