“When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, I used everything you gave me.”
~ Erma Bombeck
I’m with Erma Bombeck – by the time that I die, I want to know that I’ve given everything I had to achieve my dreams. I don’t want to have regrets laying on my death bed. I don’t want to wonder ‘what if’. To me, this fate is worse than failing or even the actual act of death.
I hope to wake up each day with a purpose. Every day I want to take strides toward my goals and dreams. Every week I want to make progress. Every month, I want to look back on the last 30 days and think, “Holy crap. Look how much I’ve done.” Every year I want to know that I’ve propelled myself toward what I want out of life. That way, when death comes for me, as it comes for all of us, I won’t have to beat myself up as I let my life go.
