It's the small steps that make a difference
Today I was amazed. I was listening to Radio 4 Woman's Hour. (It's on the link for a while if you're quick.)
The interviewee explained how she always wanted to carry on learning; if she could learn a new word each day, she was delighted. She described how on most days she would go to the supermarket as part of her exercise, even if she only wanted one item. Asked how she kept so fit, she admitted a love of chocolate. But the trick was not to have it by her side in the lounge, but in the fridge in the kitchen; she did at least have to walk to get it. Maybe you think this is not that remarkable until you, like me, learned she is 105.
What small changes can you make? How can you grow, both spiritually and emotionally? What can you add to your day so that you fulfil your potential, whether that's learning something new, getting fitter, or having a better work-life balance?
We might not all live to 105, but let's make the best of the years we have.
