I read a wonderful quote this week by Ralph Waldo Emerson and the quote read, “The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be”.
Emerson’s quote reminded me that a life is made up of moments in which we decide how to act and react physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
We often look at life as the big grand scheme of experiences and mesh them all together and call them life.
What if we break it down to each and every moment that we have an opportunity to decide how we will act and react in the moment. How might our lives begin to change if we start taking life by the moments?
Who is in charge of how you act and react in a moment?
You are exactly right, YOU!
If you decide in the moments how you act and react then you begin to stack those moments in who you decidedly become.
My challenge to each of us this week and in the coming new year is to focus more on the moments and how we respond to those moments.
Grow into the person you are destined to become because of the decisions you make in a moment.
