As we move towards the end of the year, it is important that we continue to give our best and challenge ourselves to grow just that little bit more each day. Every day provides us with the opportunity to take a small step forward that will improve some area of our life. As we reflect on different aspects of our learning, relationships, wellbeing or even leisure activities, we can reflect on what small step we can take to make things that bit better. Identifying what we can do moves us to focus on our area of influence and gives energy as we take a proactive approach to making a difference. Going beyond the ‘can do’, to the ‘will do’ means we make a commitment to ourselves and we gain further energy as we see ourselves in action.
Having a purpose to the ‘will do, can do’ beyond ourselves provides ongoing momentum. Usually positive proactive action has an impact beyond ourselves and can spread a contagion of possibility. Growing a habit of identifying the ‘can do’ and then following through with the ‘will do’ after both success and failure nurtures a hope-filled life. Looking to God for guidance in those steps and then trusting He walks with us, refreshes and strengthens us from within.
