I'm a down looker. At least I used to be. Meaning I don't see much farther ahead of me than just a few feet. Looking down at my feet to be sure I don't stumble (literally - 'cuz I'm sorta clutsy like that) and then I only have to deal with today and the immediate future. It's so hard for me to see what and where I want to be in 5 years let alone next month. Setting goals and making a plan would mean I'd be putting myself out there for the possibility of failure.
I can tell you with 150% certainty that I am NOT the same person I was just two and a half short years ago. Why, you ask? Because God got ahold of me, that's why. God took me by the hand and led me through the thick yuckiness of my past. He showed me what to shake, what to hold on to, what to rethink and what to erase. Because of that walk through the yuckiness, I am nothing that I used to be.
I've been given a new life, a new chance, a new opportunity to make a difference. What kind of fool would not take that opportunity and act on it? I was asked yesterday where I want to be in 5 years.....I had NO clue. So my goal (yes....I have a goal!) is to figure that out. Dream ahead a little bit. Work it out. Seek God's guidance.
I know a few things already. I want to be better than I am today. I want to give of myself to those around me, investing and working out God's will. I want to be somehow using my camera to do that. I WANT TO KEEP MY HEART ON THE RIGHT PATH....
Pretty good start, I'd say. Can it be? Me.....with a goal??? :0)
