If you had your life to do over, what would you change?
A few people have declared they would change very little. Having been involved in the people business most of my adult years, many would make changes. Here’s what I’ve gleaned:
Take yourself less serious.
Serve and support things in the community.
Seek to understand change better.
Seek to do more self discipline (whether you feel good or not).
Fret less over uncommitted people (who leave no matter what another does).
Guard your personal integrity – value what you do.
Be less troublesome – more kinder and loving.
Spend more time with our children (stress education as well as sports).
Do more listening and less talking (especially within the family).
Thank someone every day.
A final change that results from God’s Word. It’s found in II Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needed not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” When one studies the Holy Bible and makes it a part of their life, they will see the only One who can change the human being (starting with heart and soul).
