It’s not that I’m against resolutions, goals or focus, though I must confess that focus isn’t my strong suit. Rather, choosing one time a year to suddenly concentrate on personal development doesn’t resonate with me. And choosing one thing or a list of things to spend a year working on? Fuggedabahdit. It might work for others, but as for me, I choose serendipity.
the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.
“a fortunate stroke of serendipity”
synonyms: (happy) chance, (happy) accident, fluke;
Serendipity I believe is putting yourself into the world in a benevolent fashion and receiving what comes back to you. It’s how I roll.
But I also believe strongly in constant, deliberate personal development. I believe in continuously creating and evolving goals. I believe there are many wonderful words worthy of focus, but have long since chosen my life focus as Micah 6:8 in the Bible.
He has shown you, O mortal, what is good.
And what does the Lord require of you?
To act justly and to love mercy
and to walk humbly with your God.
As long as I have breath in my body my focus will be the trifecta of justice, mercy and humility.
Alas, with the year ending and another one emerging, I will simply continue to put one foot in front of the other on my ever-changing path.
