"A year from now, you will have wished you started today."
Life is fragile. In my close to perfect world, nothing has ever devastated me so much to where I question the nature of God and his purposes for our afflictions. I have always been able to somehow optimistically look past my pains and see them as opportunities for growth. That is my blessing. I have been given so much and over the past year, I have seen just how fortunate I am. Today, at the start of this new year, I am dedicated to making new goals and plans for my future life, as I'm sure everyone else is. However, I want to go deeper than the typical resolutions. Of course, I want to hit up the gym more regularly, write in my journal more frequently, and study more efficiently. But I want to focus more on enriching my life in ways I have never done before. Why? Because I can. Because I have time. This is one amazing world, and the chance I have to better my life and the lives of others should not be taken for granted. So this year, I plan on living by these precious words:
"I will live this day as if it is my last. And if it is not, I shall fall on my knees and give thanks."
