Babbling About The ONE Thing
People who know me know that I am embarking on a “ONE Thing” journey. What this means is that I want to slow down. I want to find ONE thing that I can concentrate my efforts on and do with intention and finesse.
When I was young, I could burn the candle at both ends and still get up early the next day and do it again, all day long.
Now, I am 66 years old, and the candle only burns at one end. When the candle goes out, I either take a nap or go to bed for the evening.
Nevertheless, at the end of each day, I look at my accomplishments. I am a simple person, and I do not have many things I want to accomplish at the end of each day. But there are at least three things I want to achieve before going to sleep each night. Before retiring, I ask myself these three questions.
People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
Isn’t that the truth!
Who Am I?
Today, I am that lady who does many things, and I am speaking from the point of view of a person striving to be less complicated. I feel that fine-tuning the stuff I do will fine-tune my identity.
So far, I have narrowed my interests down to two things – real estate and writing. Eventually, I plan to narrow my interests down to ONE thing. There is no need to roll the drums now because these two things hold my interest, like a monkey with a banana. Try to snatch either one of them out of my hand right now, and you might see a woman struggling hard to get it back.
In real life, we need to be who we say we are. We need to determine what we believe and then live as an example of that determination so that you and the people who interact with you can be symbiotic and comfortable with you.
Say what you mean and mean what you say.
I like the bible verse in Matthew 5:37 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
But let your word ‘yes be ‘yes, and your no be ‘no.’ Anything more than this is from the evil one.
Be Who You Are
Stand up! Be the person you are meant to be. I am now standing on my soapbox, and I present this concept from a Christian perspective. If you believe in God, then you know what I know. And, you know this without a doubt that you are in this world for a reason. I am telling you the truth. God has a purpose for you. Please seek God in all that you do. He will see you through everything. Seek Him, our Savior, and He will guide you to be your true self. You may not get the answer today or tomorrow, but you will receive a response sometime in your life.
Read what is said in Proverbs 3:5-6 (English Standard Version)
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.
Who Are You?
Of course, you don’t have to answer that question out loud. The answer is between you and whoever you want to know.
If you already know who you are, I am a little bit envious of you. If you are still searching for “the real you,” then please join me on the journey to discover the ONE thing that encompasses all who you are meant to be.
I am generally a quiet person, but at times, my thoughts run deep and wild. Most of the time, I keep my thoughts to myself, but sometimes, I feel the need to shout it out! These are just my thoughts and opinions, which may or may not be the same as yours.
