How Well Did You Do?
by Bonita Bennett
Happy Or Not? How Well Did You Do? Did you make a difference in the lives of others in your personal realm? Did you experience growth as an individual in measurable terms? Did you learn or experience something new? Did you overcome any obstacles or challenges you had doubts about overcoming? Did you progress from Point A to Point B, as it relates to your lifestyle, habits, decision-making, and/or dreams?
Are you still hanging on to something or someone you know you should let go of? Did you conquer any of your fears, or do they continue to govern your world? Did you discover something about yourself that you never knew before? Did you find happiness or peace? Did you free yourself from any self-imposed boundaries, by stretching yourself beyond your perceived limitations?
Were you more demonstrative with kindness and affection? Overall, did you make good decisions, or did you just stroll along life’s path until you were circumstantially forced into a corner of reckoning? Were there improvements in established relationships? Did you embrace new ideas and new friends? Did you explore or venture off into unfamiliar territory? Did you break any patterns or strongholds, which needed to be broken? Were any of your prayers answered?
Did you give up at any time when you should have stayed on the course? Did any of your dreams come true? Did you make any major mistakes and not admit to them?
These questions are designed to perhaps invoke some new thought for the remainder of the year and to encourage you to examine your journey and measure your progress. We must not mope along the trail of life until it ends in mediocrity. We should be dancing, which suggests moving along life’s path at a joyful pace, stopping only to change our “shoes” and direction, while we reflect on how far we’ve come and where we want to go.
