Wordless Wednesday - Inspiration: Destiny!

As our 'Surprise-A-Day' Giveaway Countdown to Christmas has taken over, and has not allowed us to post as many inspirations as we would like, especially at this time of year, I thought I'd take this Wordless Wednesday to inspire and begin the process of thinking about the New Year that is very swiftly approaching. Soon we will all have a 'date with destiny' that's how I like to think of New Year's Eve, it's a precipice of sorts, it's filled with so much potential, possibility and hope, how will you shape your destiny in this coming new year?

Here is a poem to get you thinking:

Watch your thoughts, for they become words.

Watch your words, for they become actions.

Watch your actions, for they become habits.

Watch your habits, for they become character.

Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.

  1. Love this... thank you. Happy WW!

  2. There's a Japanese word - kaizen.

    What it means is 'getting just a little bit better each day'.

    I think that's an admirable aspiration for the new year. After all, life is a marathon, not a race. If we could all get a bit better each day and meet back here next December I'm sure we'd be talking about some great changes collectively.

  3. Thanks for this post! Great help as I reflect on my New Year's Resolutions. Also loved the comments above. Here's quote that inspires me:

    For last year's words belong to last year's language
    And next year's words await another voice.
    And to make an end is to make a beginning.
    T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"

  4. Thank you everyone for your thoughtful comments to this post, our inspirations will be back in full force shortly!

    @won, I like that, Kaizen!

    @penny, Beautiful Post! Thank You!

  5. The poem has a bit of my philosophy in it: watch the little things and the big things pretty much take care of themselves. And that's why I don't make New Years resolutions--if I watch where I'm going today, I'll be closer to where I want to be tomorrow.
