Life is a short trip. We can have an exciting, adventurous, worth living trip, or we can waste it in conformity and rest. We are constantly leading somewhere. The final destination is up to us. You either can arrive to a well designed destination or end up on an undesigned destination. An undesigned destination? Maybe no the place you wanted to go, neither with the people you wanted, neither you are the person you hoped to be. At this present moment we have the ability to choose this destination. We are the only ones in the creation that have the ability to visualize our future, plan our future, dream and move toward it. We can picture in our minds the final result, the outcome, the experience, before we ever have it, see it, or live it. We can arrive to our well designed destination.
Now it is time to design this destination. So I ask you, in term of health, where do you see yourself in one year? Do you want to have a good diet? Daily exercise? What is your ideal weight? What competitions or races would you like to complete in a year? In terms of your spiritual life, where do you see yourself in one year? What impact you want to make in others? What level of depth and understanding you trying to attain? In terms of relationship, what kind of friendships you want in your life? Do you want to meet the love of your life? What qualities does she/he has? In terms of finances, How much do you want to make in a year from now? What service or products do you want to offer in exchange? In terms of experinces, what is something new that you want to try this year? Where would you like to travel to? What would you like to learn? In terms of personal growth, what type of person you want to be in a year? What habits do you want to start or quit? What qualities you want to develop? Who do you want to be in a year from now?
Take your time designing your destination. Pray about it. Define your priorities and come out with your well designed vision. We can trust that God will watch over us, make out paths straights, detour our trip and leads to better things designed by Him.
