"I am Not going to Resolve To Make A Change!"
As I was thinking about the new year of 2020 and New Year's Resolutions, I said out loud-"I am NOT going to resolve to make a change!" and thought to myself, how totally ludacris that sounds. If you have one of those people in the house, I feel sorry for you.
Who wouldn't want to improve on themselves to be a better person? But yet I know people who totally refuse.
It seems self-destructive to not want to make yourself more agreeable, more efficient, more thoughtful to others-more Christ-like, thus a better spouse, a better son or daughter, a better parent, better employee or boss, and a better human being.
For the most part, the New Years resolutions will be "self-focused" which is a good thing when it comes to making an impovement in relationships and in the world.
If each one resolves to:
"Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can."
bingo..... we will change our relationships and change the world in a positive way.
Imagine starting today, January 1st-by showing respect, and kindness to everyone we talk with.
After we stop the selfies and stop the self-absorbed mentality in America, we can return to living respectful lives by serving each other. It can bring America back to the good standards that God and our forefathers had intended for us.
Resolve to start each day by saying "good morning" to family members before you start your work day. Ask about their day. Greet those at work as you show up for work. Help with tasks at hand at home and at work, big or small.
Put down the paper and the phone when someone is talking to you or walks in the room. They are more important. Look people in the eye who you are communicating with. Show them their life and what they have to say is important, because it is.
Imagine what the world would be if we all resolved to make a change for the better this year and worked on being caring unselfish people.
Make a change. It's good for you, for families, for those you associate with, and it's very good for America.
